Bill Murray Bails For Good On ‘Ghostbusters 3’?

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!”

Amen brother.

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?

  1. But, but Bill… we paid money to see chubby, middle-aged guys chase ghosts.  Don’t you have faith in your fans.  It’s not like you’re doing a whole bunch of other movies right now.

  2. One can only hope this is the end of the plans for this unnecessary movie. I realize Aykroyd and Ramis don’t have a lot going on right now, but milking this franchise is only going to sully things.

  3. What an old poop.  I was looking forward to seeing the old gang pass on the particle thrower to a new generation, but without Bill Murray as Dr. Peter Venkman; they may as well not make the third movie.

  4. I’m skeptical as to the legitimacy of this story considering the source.
