Damn it, stop the cryptic messages and just give us a answer already!
I like so many other Ghostbuster fans am pretty fed up with all the hearsay and rumors running rampant about a possible Ghostbusters 3. Lately it seems the only original member of the busters that is talking is Bill Murray, but his words are so confusing many don’t know what to believe. In a recent Interview with GQ Magazine Bill talks a little about nothing.
GQ: Is the third Ghostbusters movie happening? What’s the story with that?
Bill Murray: It’s all a bunch of crock. It’s a crock. There was a story—and I gotta be careful here, I don’t want to hurt someone’s feelings. When I hurt someone’s feelings, I really want to hurt them. [laughs] Harold Ramis said, “Oh, I’ve got these guys, they write on The Office, and they’re really funny. They’re going to write the next Ghostbusters.” And they had just written this movie that he had directed.
GQ: Year One.
BM: Year One. Well, I never went to see Year One, but people who did, including other Ghostbusters, said it was one of the worst things they had ever seen in their lives. So that dream just vaporized. That was gone. But it’s the studio that really wants this thing. It’s a franchise. It’s a franchise, and they made a whole lot of money on Ghostbusters.
GQ: Oh, sure, I remember. The soundtrack. The lunchboxes. The action figures.
BM: Right. And it’s still one of the biggest movies of all time. And ever since that story broke, everywhere I go people are like, “So are you gonna make that movie?” I was down in Austin at South by Southwest, and you go at it hard down there—fun but, man, you need to sleep for days afterwards. Anyhow, I got into it one night with a bunch of younger people who were like, “Oh, I love Peter Venkman! I grew up with Peter Venkman!” We got to talking, and the more we talked about it, the more I thought, “Oh Christ, I should just do this thing.”
Damn you Pete Venkman!!!
