Dan Aykroyd has put to bed all those "will he, won't he" Bill Murray rumors for Ghostbusters 3. Bill Murray will not be a part of the third installment of the franchise, Grumpy Old Ghostbusters. Also, the entire project is in limbo:
In an interview with the Telegraph Aykroyd gave us a project update:
I honestly don't know. At this point it's in suspended animation. The studio, the director Ivan Reitman and Harold Ramis feel there must be a way to do it, but Bill Murray will not do the movie. He doesn't want to be involved. He's got six kids, houses all over America. He golfs in these tournaments where they pay him to turn up and have a laugh. He's into this life and living it. I know we'd have a lot of fun...I can't be mad at him. He's a friend first, a colleague second. We have a deep personal relationship that transcends business and he doesn't want to know.
We're been pretty staunch on our "No Murray, No Movie" stance. So let's hope this picture dies before it can come back with out Dr. Peter Venkman.
