Ghostbusters 3, the long in development hell project just won’t go away, in the many years since the previous sequel rumours have continued to circulate across the internet on a possible third film that never seems to build any momentum.
Throughout all the discussions, and news items about Ghostbusters 3 there has been an on again off again relationship with Bill Murray and whether he would consider reprising the role of Peter Venkman once more.
The latest on this seems to be that Murray won’t be back after all (despite previous indicators that he would be), Dan Aykroyd who has been the long running primary spokesperson and apparent driving force on the film has been recently quoted to say;
No, I can tell you he won’t be involved. 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 a third one.
After all this time it sounds like there might be some sense of urgency to the project, which is still speculated to go into production next year, which if happened could see a new film on screens in 2014.
Still feels incredibly unlikely to happen.
