Looking forward to a possible Ghostbusters 3? Well, that’s more than can be said for one Bill Murray.
According to The National Enquirer, Murray has finally tossed down the gauntlet when it comes to this film, and apparently sent his co-stars Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis a shredded copy of the film’s script, with a note that read “No one wants to pay money to see fat, old men chasing ghosts!”
Apparently, the pair are still hellbent on making the film, now without Murray joining in. Sony has avoided going further without Murray’s go ahead or involvement, but that all may change if this is truly the case.
Personally, I hope this kills this project. This is a franchise that still has fans, but is about as dead as they come, and frankly, would be hard to reboot. I like the idea of passing the torch to a new team, but at this point, that idea already feels stale and uninventive. Here’s to hoping that Murray finally put the last nail in this thing’s coffin. What do you think?
