Ghostbusters 3 Hinges On Bill Murray Return


GHOSTBUSTERS 3, the highly anticipated new movie in the supernatural-comedy franchise, will only be made if Bill Murray reprises his role as 'Peter Venkman', however, a final script has been sent to him for his approval, according to USA Today. During an interview with David Letterman last year, the acclaimed 60-year-old actor said he would only be involved in the movie if his "character was killed off in the first reel".
The director of the movie Ivan Reitman confirmed that a script described as being "very good" is currently being considered by Murray but that there has been no feedback from the actor so far. Although other cast-members from the original Ghostbuster movies such as Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis have since tasted moderate success, it is Murray who would be movie's biggest draw and his recent performances in the likes of 'Lost in Translation', 'Broken Flowers' and 'Get Low' have been heralded by critics.
Reitman also confirmed that if the project gets the go-ahead, he would consider shooting in 3D, saying, "Certainly it has come up because it seems like an obvious thing to do. And certainly the studio is interested in that because there seems to be a real financial bump for the right movies being done in 3-D".
