Is Bill Murray Softening On 'Ghostbusters 3'? Or Is He Just Being Polite?

IndieWire says

We probably don't need to give you the history of "Ghostbusters 3" and Bill Murray's possible involvement, but here goes a quick recap: the original gang, director Ivan Reitman and writer/stars Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis, have been trying to make a third installment of the "Ghostbusters" series for a few years now. But because of Murray's reluctance, likely precipitated by the lackluster execution of "Ghostbusters 2," pulling together a third film -- said to center on a new generation of younger ghostbusters -- hasn't been easy. Murray's responses over the years have generally boiled down to, "meh, do we really need another one?" and or more harsher assessments of the franchise's viability.

Bring it, me love ghostbusters.

Yeah Bill Murray, is just hating because he doesn't get it, there is a whole new generation of people who will be seeing ghost busters for the first time...

...and though his was a classic, it probably makes him feel like the one he did will just be forgotten.. and even worst if this one is bad, then it will really just erase any love people had for the older movie.

I've never understood the whole if thew new one is bad people won't love the original any more. That just doesn't make sense to me but a TON of people feel that way about a crap load of movies and film franchises.

Using myself as a example I'm a huge Planet of the Apes fan and loved the original Films but when the remake that Tim Burton did came out and sucked horribly I didn't stop loving the originals. In fact I went back and watched them again and loved them even more.(I'm referring to the remake not Rise of the Planet of the Apes which was fantastic)

But like you said some people will lose their love of a classic movie or franchise because of something in sad franchise being bad and I have never been able to understand that.

All that said I do really want to see another Ghostbusters movie and one with the entire original cast would be nice. I mean if Murray won't do it it's a matter of time until the wrong people get a hold of it and force it ahead regardless so I think he should just suck and up and do it.

If they train Jim Parsons (Sheldon from Big Bang Theory), he could be a good "new" Rick Moranis, or Venkman.

Yeah, strangely enough, Jonah Hill would make an great comedy relief, not sure yet what character he would replace.

Also, sidenote; how many new ghostbusters is there going to be?
Or is it undecided at this point?

But yeah, new Ghosterbusters movie, please!

Sorry, that was meant for Deadpool, @below.

What actors would best suit the next generation of the Ghost Busters? Whoever they are have to be really impressive.

I keep thinking James Roday would make a great candidate. Peter Venkman is similar to Shawn Spencer in some ways if you think about it. They almost seem like father and son.

you can bet your ass it'd have people like michael cera and jonah hill in the mix, that's the sort of revival that modern studios would wanna give imo

Deadpool6162905d ago

It's been said many times that there's going to be new Ghost Busters in the next movie.

Do some of you have something against James Roday?

M4I0N32905d ago

I definitely think James Roday would make a good addition, to kind of take of Bill Murray's position.

Deadpool6162905d ago

Anyone else have any suggestions for the next generation of Ghost Busters?

Along with James Roday, I think Sam Rockwell would be a good pick.

DAMN YOU MORTALITY!!! I like the original cast, be cool to see what new blood could do to the saga though.
