More Aggravating, Possibly Untrue Ghostbusters 3 News


?If you’re a massive Ghostbusters fan and desperately trying to avoid spoilers about the seemingly-happening Ghostbusters 3 movie, I’d put your particle accelerator in front of your eyes, because this is a big, big spoiler. If it’s true. Which it could be. So… you’ve been warned.

Remember when Sigorney Weaver said in some Avatar interview that Bill Murray was going to be a ghost? Well… now Bill Murray is saying he’s going to be a ghost, too. From an interview with The Mail as summed up by Empire:

“I’ll come back in Ghostbusters 3 only if I get to be a ghost,” Murray told The Mail On Sunday
in an exclusive interview. “I said to them, ‘I’ll do it if you kill me
off in the first reel.’ So now they are going to have me as a ghost in
the film.”

Fuck. Is there anyone who wants Bill Murray to be a ghost in a Ghostbusters film other than Bill Murray? I want him to bust some goddamn ghosts, dammit. Does this mean that there’ll definitely be a new young team for the elder Ghostbusters to train? I have no idea.

Now, there is a not minuscule chance that this might be untrue, despite the seeming confirmations from both Weaver and Murray. First of all, the Murray interview was done back in last October, although The Mail has for whatever reason decided to finally publish it last weekend. That’s 3-4 months where things could have changed. Also, we’ve all heard about the millions of GB3 scripts; maybe he and Weaver were referring to an older one. And last but not least, this is Bill Murray. He could be yanking our chains. I certainly hope so, but it certainly feels like I’m in denial over this. My question for you guys — can Ghostbusters 3 be that enjoyable if Venkman is a ghost for most of it?
