Ghostbusters 3 will start shooting next summer…without Bill Murray

After years of chatter, false starts and dashed hopes, it is now official: Ghostbusters 3 will start shooting. That’s right, folks: Starting next summer, Ivan Reitman will begin directing the likes of Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Sigourney Weaver. Noticeably absent, of course, is Bill Murray, who has zero interest in the project.

Aykroyd confirmed the sad news last August, saying, “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 the third one.”

To soften the blow of a no-Murray Ghostbusters, cast members from the original 1984 flick, Annie Potts and Ernie Hudson, will join the aforementioned trio; Anna Faris and Eliza Dushku are also set to star. The new film will center around the founders of the ghost-catching agency teaching a new generation of wannabe heroes. It’s been 23 years since Ghostbusters 2 debuted.

    glad to see they are going ahead with it. I like the fact they are doing it as a continuation. If you play the games like the ghostbusters self title and sanctum of slime they both involve the original stars training a new employee or a intern group of noobs. This has worked for the game quite nicely and can’t wait to see the movie. Although it is a shame that Bill is not returning I think he has had enough especially after willing to come back for the Game voice over. He probebly just wants to be left alone and rightfully so.

    I would rather see a remake of Ghostbusters than…whatever this is going to be…and I love Ghostbusters and I hate remakes…so that show you that…well, I think very little of any of this stuff that is happening with this project.

    This can definitely still work if they take a lot of care and with a really great script.

    Let’s hope Dan learned something from Blues Brothers 2000
