If you’re a big fan of the Ghostbusters franchise then this news isn’t going to make your day. In an interview with Metro UK Dan Aykroyd confirmed that Murray sadly will not be involved in the third Ghostbusters movie. The only slice of good news from this interview comes from the confirmation that the film is now finally happening, Aykroyd said:
“We’ve got a brilliant new writer on it and we’ll be passing the torch on to a new generation. We’re working on it to make it just right to satisfy our fans. I’m confident we’ll be in production in the next year…We’ve tried a few concepts which weren’t right but now we’ve got a good structure and will make it happen.
When quizzed about Bill Murray’s involvement he said:
“I can tell you he won’t be involved…It’s sad but we’re passing it on to a new generation. 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.
