Bill Murray Is A Ghostbuster at the Scream Awards

In recent years Bill Murray’s attraction to joining Ghostbusters 3 has been like the lyrics to a Katy Perry song:

“‘Cause you’re hot then you’re cold
You’re yes then you’re no
You’re in then you’re out”

Well, it now looks like things may be looking up and that Murray might just be warming to the idea  of returning to his role of Ghostbuster Peter Venkman. The comic legend turned up to the 2010 Spike Scream Awards in full Ghostbusters costume.

So will the picky star commit to a new Ghostbusters adventure?

Murray was at the awards show to accept the award for the best horror movie  – Zombieland, a film in which he cameos. His appearance in a Ghostbuster costume will no doubt give fans hope that he is willing to reprise his role of Peter Venkman in the proposed Ghostbusters 3. The last time we heard about Ghostbusters, the latest draft of the screenplay had been sent out to Murray, and maybe, just maybe, he found the script appealing. Murray has been seen as the main stumbling block between Ghostbusters 3 and the big screen, and everytime he seems interested, he comes back and says that he’s not.

The star could be playing coy in order to secure a huge payday, but seeing as this new film would be  a passing of the torch to new Ghostbusters, it would be odd that Murray would be getting a huge fee for what is being planned as an extended cameo.

With director Ivan Reitman and original stars Harold Raimis and Dan Aykroyd all interested in making a third installment, it looks like a new Ghostbusters might be inevitable – but at this stage it appears that Murray’s involvement in Ghostbusters 3 is still up in the air (a slight Reitman joke) but things are definitely looking up!

  1. I think a big, fat “Ghost” of a check is dangling before Murray at the moment, and this is the first clue he’s about to grab it.

  2. I hope he signs on for ‘Ghostbusters 3′, and give us one last chacne to see them on screen together one last time.

  3. I think Murray is just messing with the fanboys. Which, as far as I’m concerned, is awesome.

    Bill Murray rocks.

    • he was great in The Life Aquatic

      • Another one of my favourite films! Willem Dafoe and Jeff Goldblum are fantastic in that also.

        • scuba divers with glocks, really how can it get any better lol. “i’m going to fight you Steve” classic

          • The scene with the shark was the best part when he decides he doesn’t want to kill it was a real tear jerker.

  4. Gotta love the guy. He just does whatever he wants!
    Lost In Translation is my favourite film of all time!

  5. I love Bill Murray, but he really looks like hell!!

  6. He looks older than I thought.

  7. He is just messing with our heads.

  8. This is obvious this will happen and Mr. Murry is returning. There is no way he would appear in person at ANY event with his GB gear on if this was not the case. Freaking Awesome!

  9. “Pay dis man his munny!” So he can just do the damn thing.

  10. On second thought,He could have chosen to do it as a joke .
    I know people think that is unlikely, but it is possible.

  11. I think he will do it. If for no other reason that he will not get slimed this time. He will die and figure out that he can slime people and it will be on.

  12. Bill Murray is somewhat a natural treasure in hollywood cinema, just like Betty White.

  13. I don’t think he’s messing with us as much as he has tried to stay away from doing GB3 I think he finally said to hell with it I will do it so people will stop asking me about he probably bought the suit and Proton pack from ebay with the BIG FAT CHECK FROM SONY LOL!

  14. I think his heart is not really in it, so many are eager for the ride he is going along with the tide. The paycheck plays some part but it’s more about being appreciated. He needs extra of that right now that is why he is stressing a good script. Bill wants to be good in it for us and he wants his fellow actors to look good, not just out for money (I think they do know embarrassment no matter how big the check). With the examples of some good movies out there, it should be easy to write this one good after all the audience is half captivated already.

  15. Byrdman-Do you believe in UFOs, astral projections, mental telepathy, ESP, clairvoyance, spirit photography, telekinetic movement, full trance mediums, the Loch Ness monster and the theory of Atlantis?

    Bill Murray-If there’s a steady pay check int it, I’ll believe anything you say.

    Byrdman-If someone asks you if you want to be in Ghostbusters 3, you say YES!!!!
