My home town WGN recently interviewed the elusive Bill Murray who has once again reinvigorated our hopes of seeing him reunite with Harold Ramis, Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson for Ghostbusters 3. He also shared his aspirations to see the Cubs win the World Series. Which is more likely? Probably neither…
After stating his high expectations for the Cubs, Murray doesn’t duck the question about the long gestured Ghostbusters sequel that’s been allegedly held up due to Murray being “difficult” (this includes reports of him shredding the script and sending it back to Ackroyd). When asked about reuniting with his ghost bustin’ group, he replied, “Well, it’s a possibility.”
It’s unfortunate that we’re at the point of dissecting every little word that comes out of the comedian’s mouth, but by not being immediately dismissive it does keep fan’s hopes alive.
Columbia Pictures hopes to tell the story of a ragtag group of paranormal researchers whom reopen their notorious ghost removal service, with a new generation of Ghostbusters brought on board to be green slimed and trained to contain the mischievous spirits. We previously reported that the new ‘Busters will be lead by Dana and Peter’s lovechild, Oscar. Rick Moranis and Sigourney Weaver have both been closely connected to the project.
