Bill Murray is super excited about making Ghostbusters 3


19th July 2010

Unless he's being, like, sarcastic or something.

If you're holding your breath waiting for Ghostbusters 3, then I have bad news for you: you're going to die. Bill Murray has always been relatively dismissive of a third instalment, much like he was about the first sequel, but now GQ have got a hold of him and have possibly the definitive quote on the status of Ghostbusters 3. Hint: it's not looking good.

"It's all a bunch of crock. It's a crock... 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... 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."
I'd just like to stop here and thank the Lord for how awesome Bill Murray is. I can only imagine he and Harold Ramis are either the best of friends or the worst of enemies for the way he publicly called out Year One. It helps that, y'know, he's totally right. I laughed more at the actual Bible.

However, all hope is not lost. Murray says the fans' response to news of Ghostbusters 3 has him thinking he might just make the damn thing anyway. It certainly wouldn't be the first time he'd made a movie for a big paycheque. Say, like, Garfield?

I'm not going to plagiarise GQ any more, so go read their story of how Bill Murray ended up voicing a sarcastic cat: I promise you it's worthwhile.
