Ah, Ghostbusters 3. I’m sure you’ll be terrible. That’s not some snarky online reflexive writing – I love to love things – but it looks like this project is just creatively circling the drain and that it’s sole reason for existing will be the cash. Fairly soon we might actually have a third film, which means the balance in the universe will have shifted. We’ll have one great Ghostbusters and two bad ones. And now one thing’s for sure – Bill Murray Won’t Be In It. We all knew that was coming, but here it really is. Once Dan Aykroyd admits to this, that means the last person on earth who was holding out hope has finally given in.
Last month, on the heels of this report, Men in Black 3 scribe Etan Cohen was been tapped to rewrite the sequel for the studio. He was supposed to be rewriting the draft that “The Office” scribes Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky were hired to write in Setember 2008.
Except now it appears he’s been writing a draft, on Dan Aykroyd’s marching orders, without Murray’s character Peter Venkman. When Metro asked Aykroyd if Murray would be in the film he replied, “No, I can tell you he won’t be involved..” He continued, “It’s sad but we’re passing it on to a new generation. Ghostbusters 3 can be a successful movie without Bill. My preference would be to have him involved but at this point he doesn’t seem to be coming and we have to move on. It’s time to make the third one.”
The plan remains to have the old Ghostbusters pass the torch to a new bunch of rapscallions. Excited? *Oh and I would hope Peter Venkman isn’t in the script. How sad would it be if they got someone else to play him?
