Bill Murray Interested In Ghostbusters 3!

murray Bill Murray Interested In Ghostbusters 3!There is an old expression: “never hurry a Murray”.

Who would have thought that the Murray in question was Bill Murray?

Twenty years after showing no interest whatsoever in another Ghostbusters movie, Murray now appears to have embraced his Proton Pack wearing days and shown his first signs of coming onboard Ghostbusters 3.

While at a screening of his forthcoming film City of Ember at Fantastic Fest, he had a few things to say about his love of  Ghostbusters.

Murray commented on his love of the first film – how the first 40-45 minutes was some of the best material that he’d been in and how “the wounds have healed” from Ghostbusters 2.

He talked about his enthusiasm for the films and how recording his voice-over for the new video game had him singing the Ghostbusters theme in the street.

It looks like we may actually see Murray return to the character of Peter Venkmen, but it all depends on the script. The actor says that the main problem with the second film was the reliance on special effects.

Maybe it’s just the cynic in me, but what also helps his chances of returning is that he’s going through a divorce, and he may want to earn back some money that he will be giving to his soon to be ex-wife.

  1. Cool!

    I just hope it’s more about the old gang than some silly intro to Ghostbusters 3 THE NEXT GENERATION!…

    Anyway, I missed the update so I posted it on the movie talk page.

    But anyway, here’s Bill saying those words that will probably mean more Ghostbusters in the future… ;)

  2. I grew up watching a lot Bill Murray movies before he went into the Bizarro Bill Murray. I’m looking forward to seeing him reprise the roll and get back into the funny guy mode he is respected for.

  3. It’ll be interesting to see how this all works out. It’ll be difficult to film this movie without the very thing he resented in 2. Special Effects will make him deal with the green screen and not much else unless they go retro and try to do as much as possible with physical props.

    One also has to keep in mind the reality shows currently running like Ghost Hunters and Paranormal State. Whether you think they are legitimate or not is a personal preference, but those people having seen these shows will probably also be the crowd flocking to Ghostbusters III. The script will have to play to that crowd a bit, even if it’s a comedy.

  4. Bill’s really grabbing on to this,,,

    That’s all I’m gonna say,,,
