I’m seriously getting so sick of reporting on this, especially because there’s nothing ever positive to say, but once again we have to tell you that Bill Murray is holding up Ghostbusters 3.
Deadline reports that Murray is courted to play Franklin Delano Roosevelt in the Roger Michell-directed Hyde Park on the Hudson. If he agrees, the movie goes green immediately. The ramifications would be the indefinite delay of a third Ghostbusters, as the site’s sources state that the movie will only be made with the blessings of Murray.
And it gets more sour; even though Sony Pictures and the Ghostbusters creative team built a sequel around Murray, they reports the actor still hasn’t contacted the studio to tell them if he’s even read the script script by “The Office” writers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky that was delivered to him at the beginning of the year.
