Rumor: Bill Murray Reportedly Shredded Ghostbusters 3 Script In Brilliant Act of Defiance

BillMurray150.jpgPresenting the best-worst Bill Murray rumor of the week: The National Enquirer (I know, I know) reports that the actor has finally gotten around to that Ghostbusters threequel script he had been avoiding for months -- by shredding it and sending the carnage to Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis along with a note that read, "No one wants to pay money to see fat, old men chasing ghosts!" Fictional tabloid Bill Murray kind of has a point. [The Playlist]

    This is indeed a great line.

    Grumpy Old Ghostbusters?

  • Dimo says:

    Who wants to see a new shitty Ghostbusters when you can just watch Ghostbusters?

  • casting couch says:

    I already saw one: Ghostbusters 2 back in 1989.

  • Dimo says:

    Exactly, and Ghostbusters 3 will make that movie look like The Godfather Part II.

  • Andrew11 says:

    We already had the perfect Ghostbusters 3, it was called Ghostbusters: The Video Game.
    It really was the only conceivable way to do a Ghostbusters 3, and it was fairly successful. And hey, if you don't play games... watch it on youtube or something.
    Maybe it wasn't perfect, but it was the only way to get some new Ghostbusters laughs without actually, you know, watching fat old men chasing ghosts.

  • Ben says:

    Fat, old men chasing ghosts may not sound like much, but when those fat, old men are Bill Murray, Dan Ayckroyd, Ernie Hudson and Harold Ramis, suddenly 'not much' begins to sound like 'the best thing in the whole fucking world'.

    Fat, old men running a successful franchise with numerous branches, tonnes of staff and a thriving R+D department sounds even better though. Certainly better than fat old men training their replacements, which would be terrible.

    Arrête donc de te plaindre espèce de vieux poudré. (Stop complaining grumpy old man.)
