And now itâ€™s time to hear the truth, straight from the horseâ€™s mouth.
Empire recently chatted with writer and iconic comedic thespian Dan Aykroyd, who revealed a few interesting details about the much talked about Ghostbusters 3.
First, while he seemed upbeat about possibly seeing Rick Moranis return for this film, he said that we may not see Bill Murray back in the saddle as Venkman, but instead find his character re-written, to be played by a different actor. Think this franchiseâ€™s Bond.
Now, he goes on to say that, for the film to happen in the first place, a script must be â€œperfect,â€ so for all intents and purposes, this story could never ultimately have any sort of weight. That said, itâ€™s definitely worth noting. Murray has always been the proverbial thorn in this projectâ€™s side, and sure, thatâ€™s admirable, but at this point, with the crew looking to write around Murrayâ€™s hesitation, it seems a bit comedic. Hopefully this wonâ€™t ultimately happen, and weâ€™ll either never see this film, or weâ€™ll find our crew back together, and better than ever.
