Deadline, wrote this interesting article about the difficulties in making “Ghostbusters 3”. Why is “Ghostbusters III” so difficult to get the green light? It’s because Bill Murray have always been strict and picky with the third film. You’ve read most interviews with Bill about Ghostbusters 3 over the past year and Bill haven’t been so kind about the third film. Bill mostly laughed at all Ghostbusters 3 talk every time he was asked about it.
That’s why they sent the script to Bill first, to get his approval. Get feedback from Bill. In that article, Sony wanted to make it clear that they will not make a Ghostbusters film without Bill. If Bill is in, they will get right to work. If Bill is out, then no film at all, it’s simple as that.
I think there’s a good chance Bill will say yes ’cause he was wearing the Ghostbuters suit for the “Zombie Land” movie too.
It’ll be nice to see Harold Ramis back as Egon as well, as I know that Harold doesn’t act much anymore, he mostly concentrated on directing movies over the years. I hope the GIII script won’t concentrate on the passing the torch to younger Ghostbusters eitiher, so we’ll have to wait and see. Anyway, we’ll have to keep our fingers crossed if Bill wants in or not. We’ll hear from Bill soon on his answer, maybe in a few weeks or so. He’ll have to take the time to read the script and make his decision.
I really hope a GIII film will happen ’cause it deserves one more film to close out the trilogy.
