RUMOR: Actor Bill Murray Shredded the Script of GHOSTBUSTERS 3

RUMOR: Actor Bill Murray Shredded the Script of GHOSTBUSTERS 3

Mike Walker is reporting that the latest script changes to Ghostbuster 3 still wasn't enough to entice Bill Murray to return as Peter Venkman.


The almost always reliable National Enquirer is reporting that Bill Murray who has script approval did not like the new version. The script has been written by the writing team that wrote Jack Black's Year One. All of the other main cast members have said that they are all for another Ghostbusters' sequel. Like always with any rumor take this with a grain of salt.

Murray, who’s got script approval, kept refusing to take producers’ phone calls after they’d send rewrites.

Then, after they sent him the latest reworked screenplay weeks ago, Murray fired back his shocking answer – nailing the coffin shut forever – by sending Dan and Harold a box containing the new script SHREDDED into confetti, along with this nasty note: “No one wants to pay money to see fat, old men chasing ghosts!”

Insiders say furious Dan and Harold vow that Bill’s off their “who ya gonna call” list forever – and they’ll make the movie WITHOUT him!

Can't say I'm looking forward to this...

Oh and first? :D
FlannelGuy26 - 12/18/2011, 7:14 PM
I'd pay to see those gals chase...anything.

In any case, just reboot the damn thing. Might as well at this point.

Jesus! It's like trying to get a bill passed in a Republican Congress!
darCNite1989 - 12/18/2011, 7:23 PM
Might as well have. Probably the best thing Murray could do for the movie.

muther F'er. that really pisses me off. thats my fav movie. it got me into art, which pays for my nasty comic habit, and he turns into a dick. he owes so much of hwat he has to ghostbusters, and to not even do a 15 min role getting killed off asap suxxxxxx.
ballstothewall - 12/18/2011, 7:27 PM
God! The Ghostbusters would never be the same without him! The only thing I want to watch before I die is Ghostbusters 3 The Avengers.

From the national enquier..... don't believe this
BlairCo - 12/18/2011, 7:30 PM
Can't they just can it? It wouldn't be the same without Bill Murray and as he doesn't approve of any script draft, Sony might as well pull the plug on it.
JohnPaul - 12/18/2011, 7:31 PM
They would be idiots to make this movie without him. I'm with Bill on this. Give it up.
MercMatt - 12/18/2011, 7:32 PM
Um... I just don't think Bill Murray is that much of a jerk. Believe this is a lie, I do.
TheHitchhikingGhost - 12/18/2011, 7:33 PM
I love Bill Murray. [frick] Ghostbusters 3.

Did this article share the page with one of those "An Alien Got My Husband pregnant with triplets!" type of articles?
GodzillaKart - 12/18/2011, 7:35 PM
I'm sure Bill, the only guy from the original movie still making good films, has a good sense of these things.
Bojac - 12/18/2011, 7:37 PM
It won't happen without Bill.
Plus nobody would want to see it without him.

Plus after seeing Year One, I was VERY worried about the script.

It's not Ghostbusters without the original team...unless they make a whole new team with the originals as cameos.

@ggolbin awesome icon. Scrooged is the best Xmas movie for me
Anthrax - 12/18/2011, 7:41 PM
LMFAO he just called himself fat
Anthrax - 12/18/2011, 7:41 PM
so i doubt this is legit

@batlizard i lmfao at your avatar man XD
Mrcool210 - 12/18/2011, 7:48 PM
didnt bill murray want in if he could be a ghost? plus if he hated the idea of ghostbusters 3 he wouldnt have voiced his character in the game, so i call bullshit
SageMode - 12/18/2011, 7:49 PM
Ghostbusters were just fine leaving ended at part 2. I dont understand Hollywood sometimes. SMH

I'm sick of Bill Murray being a dick just because he can.
Mikfly - 12/18/2011, 7:49 PM
I doubt the legitimacy of this on the idea that Bill would not subjugate his say in the movie. Sending back the script, shredded, with a rude note, would terminate any involvement he has. Ghostbusters is his baby.

holy hell what's with this David cross fascination he is such a balding douche of an actor, annoying and one dimensional....arg!

Lmao @UncannyXman: 'genious' hahahahahahaha
FightmasterNoel - 12/18/2011, 7:54 PM
One if its from national enquirer not hundred percent factual,two itll be dissapointing to me if murray's not in it, the second Gbustas didnt leave the best taste in my mouth but the first will always be classic. If they wanna make a third one so as to try to make up for there POS second,im for it,and tho it may suk murray is not in it,they could explain his charectors abcense,death,retired,ect. I say they do for it with or without murray if they can do it right.
krooklyndodger - 12/18/2011, 7:54 PM
I hate to say it, but Murray has become very selective about scripts (Zombieland) and very vocal about bad movies he's participated in (Garfield) and it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that he's turned down doing the sequel to Ghostbusters. If Dan Akroyd and Harold Ramis are writing this, then they should consider bringing on a younger or fresher writing team.
Greengo - 12/18/2011, 7:55 PM
If one more person says 'subjugate' they're getting a troll courtesy of Greengo

And the second part of my comment is only relevant if its true that murray dont wanna be in it when using Enquirer for info not hundred on anything
somedude728 - 12/18/2011, 8:00 PM
that's the best thing he's said or done since saying "Garfield, maybe"
Cross - 12/18/2011, 8:05 PM
Saw the original weeks ago. It was so [frick]ing lame and Bill was the worst part of it. So I don't care if they make it or not.
Joe6Pack74 - 12/18/2011, 8:07 PM
They should be able to sue Murray to get his rights to the movie property. You can do that with businesses to force partners out. I would assume it should be the same with movie rights. On another note, Bill Murray has always been a self centered ass clown with only 3-4 funny movies. The rest of his stuff sucked the big one.
Joe6Pack74 - 12/18/2011, 8:11 PM
If was not for his supporting cast in his good movies, Ghostbusters, Caddyshack, What about Bob and Groundhog Day, he would be homeless and living in a van down by the river.
soaponapope - 12/18/2011, 8:15 PM
ah yes, National Enquirer. Making shit up for over 50 years
SuperPickle - 12/18/2011, 8:16 PM
In similarly credible news, my cousin's neighbor, who huffs a LOT of rubber cement and once had a letter to the editor published in the early 90's is reporting they've already started filming Ghostbusters 3 and are working on getting Kim Jong Il's ghost to appear in it and be the villain. Alex Jones has a cameo as the President of the United States and Speilberg is directing.

Should be RAD!!!!
jaysin420 - 12/18/2011, 8:35 PM
I totally believe this, I saw an interview with him like a year ago and he said as long as those writers (from Year One) were doing the script, that he'd never even read it.
