Who Ya Gonna Call? Not Bill Murray

For the last few months, Ghostbusters fans have been following the news about the possible release of a third film. Dan Aykroyd has been releasing monthly updates on the progress of the movie, but it’s still at a very early stage. The script is still being tweaked and modified, production and finances don’t seem to be an issue, but one major road block stands in the way: Bill Murray.
Murray has officially turned down offers to rejoin his old cast and crew on this project. He’s given no official comment to the press, but Aykroyd has mentioned Murray’s feelings to the news. Dan has stated:
“At this point it’s in suspended animation. The studio, the director Ivan Reitman and [co-star] Harold Ramis feel there must be a way to do it, but Bill Murray will not do the movie. He doesn’t want to be involved.”
So will there be another action packed, ghostbusting adventure on the big screen? At this point it seems likely. Just don’t get your hopes up when it comes to seeing Venkman alongside Stantz and Spengler. Murray is sitting this one out and I have a feeling that his decision is going to hurt the movie’s chances of doing well in the box office.
