Will 'Ghostbusters 3' Be Cool or Lame?

If there's something strange in the neighborhood, who you gonna call?

Bill Murray.

No one is quite sure what the deal is with the new "Ghostbusters" film -- will Murray be involved or not? -- but one thing we do know is that it's well on its way to becoming a reality.

The script is being written by Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg, who were head writers on the American "Office," as well as the critically shunned "Year One." But some sources are reporting that original Ghostbuster Dan Aykroyd is getting in on the script to convince Murray to join up.

Aykroyd told Vanity Fair, "I think [Murray] was concerned that the writing on 'Ghostbusters 3' by these guys would not be up to standard, but I can tell you firsthand, I’m working on the script now and those two - Stupnitsky and Eisenberg - wrote Bill the comic role of a lifetime, and the new Ghostbusters and the old are all well represented in it."

However, Hollywood.com reports that a close source explained, "Aykroyd is involved enough that the studio will listen to his input, but he’s not doing a rewrite of the script."

Either way, Murray is still on the fence, and what would the Ghostbusters be without Dr. Venkman? It's success may rest on his shoulders.




Not if it's half as cool as this Ghostbusters AC/DC mashup:

    I'm sure I read somewhere that Bill Murray and Ben Stiller are supposed to be in it.

    I should think Bill Murray will be in it-he said he'll only star in it if they kill him off in the first reel and write him back in it as a Ghost so as long as they do what he said...
    This movie should be amazing.I love the idea of passing the torch onto a new generation of Ghostbusters-clever.And I reckon seeing as it's ages since the 1st one came out,the story and plot should be perfect as they should surely have fresh ideas.

    If its the same writers, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis, then the film could be a winner, but with murray or not, it will still need a good cast! if adam sandler is in it, ill never watch another ghostbusting movie again though, lol. will ferrel might just make it, he can almost do serious and comedy.. erm! :O but to be honest, I think it would probably work best involving ALL of the original cast, together with one or two 'modern' actors to give more interest to todays audiences. ps GB2 was actually quite good, just not on the same level or as funny as the first-but the main story involving a possessed painting was a decent change, and made it more than just a cut and paste adaptation of the original film

    I loved that movie in the 80's, but the current trend of reliving the movies from the 80's have failed. I'm praying that it's awesome though.

    Most of the time not always a little sun never hurt. Well it does hurt my skin sometimes bc its sensitive to sunlight. Yes I go out at like 10:00 and stay out until 06:00. It varries from time to time. I didn't get to last night because i twisted my ankle and so to retaliate for that I just didn't sleep just watched the night fade away.

    We all love those types of movies with protoplasm and ectoplasm and ghosts from centuries ago doing magical things, don't we? The Sorcerer's Apprentice did well in the box office, didn't it?

    It really depends on the people in it who wrote it and the budget for it.

    Sequels can be great if there done by the right people in this case if they let Bill Murry or Dan Aykroyd do the writing and directing it should be a smash in retirement homes every where. .

    THE ODDS ARE NOT GOOD FOR SEQUELS.SURE THERE HAVE BEEN A FEW AS GOOD OR EVEN BETTER THEN THE ORIGINAL, BUT YOU CAN COUNT THEM ON ONE HAND.

    It'll be tough to convince Murray to join, but I think he will. Even if he doesn't, Ghostbusters 3 will still be amazing.
