Ghostbusters ain’t afraid of going on without Bill Murray


With all of this will they or won’t they melodrama surrounding the production of a third Ghostbusters film, it’s refreshing to finally have some decisive news on the subject. According to Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray is NOT RETURNING for the third film. When asked about the return of the original Peter Venkman, Aykroyd offered this tiny little crisis solving quote:

“No, I can tell you [Murray] won’t be involved…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.”

Ah, that’s better. I for one am really hopeful. They can kill Venkman off, recast him, I honestly don’t care. I just want more bustin’ because I ain’t afraid of no ghosts…or no Bill Murray.
