“[W]e’re at a point that there’s a story that [Bill Murray] can accept and that’s going to work, and I think we’re going to be in production fairly soon. We could be in production by winter.”
So, long-time hold-out Bill Murray finally decided to do a third Ghostbusters movie. I’m guessing the work on the upcoming Ghostbusters game — in which the entire cast lent their voice acting talents — reignited some old sparks.
With so much time having passed since the second Ghostbusters movie, it comes as no surprise that the new script will focus more on a new team of Ghostbusters. Aykroyd further commented thusly:
“I’d like it to be a passing-of-the-torch movie. Let’s revisit the old characters briefly and happily and have them there as family but let’s pass it on to a new generation.”
I seriously hope the movie pans out this time.
