Dan Aykroyd Reveals Some Major Details For GhostBusters 3
Though one star Bill Murray may be putting up a fight to return, or even read the script, Murray's Costar Dan Akroyd let it slip that GhostBusters 3 could be made with or without Bill Murray....
When asked recently by Coming Soon whether a third GhostBusters flick was truly on the way, star Bill Murray responded with the following:
"Yes, we will be doing the movie and hopefully with Mr. Murray," he says, "That is our hope. We have an excellent script. What we have to remember is that 'Ghostbusters' is bigger than any one component, although Billy was absolutely the lead and contributive to it in a massive way, as was the director and Harold [Ramis], myself and Sigourney [Weaver]. The concept is much larger than any individual role and the promise of 'Ghostbusters 3' is that we get to hand the equipment and the franchise down to new blood."
While speaking about his and Harold Rammis' characters fates, he let it slip that this threequel will truly see the original team hand down the ranks to some "young blood":
"My character, Ray, is now blind in one eye and can't drive the cadillac," he says, "He's got a bad knee and can't carry the packs... Egon is too large to get into the harness. We need young blood and that's the promise. We're gonna hand it to a new generation."
Akroyd also mentioned who he would like to see ass a potential new GhostBuster for the younger team:
"I like this guy Matthew Gray Gubler from the 'Criminal Minds' show," he adds, "But there's going to be a casting. We're going to see everyone that wants to do it. We're going to need... three guys and a young woman."
