Bill Murray defecates on Ghostbusters 3 script

by | 21st, December 2011

WHAT does Bill Murray think of Ghostbusters? What is Ghostbusters? Sadly, it’s not a film about the ample bosom of sexy female spectres, but rather (as you damn well know) a caper involving some near-useless blokes in boiler suits getting giddy in the face of gate-keepers and goo inducing thimgummies.

Oh, and in the first Ghostbusters, Ray is fellated by a ghost in a montage, but no-one ever mentions that.

Either way, pretty much everyone loves both Ghostbusters films and a third one wouldn’t go amiss. We can all revel in nostalgia and all collectively fawn over Bill Murray who is possibly the coolest man on Earth.

Alas, any forthcoming flicks in the franchise are stumbling over that very Bill Murray shaped obstacle. Any hope of seeing Dan Aykroyd & Co teaming up with Murray again may be on indefinite hiatus after Murray, once again, put the scuppers on a return.

According to absolutely trustworthy The National Enquirer, Murray had been sent the latest version of a script for Ghostbusters 3, co-written by original stars Aykroyd and Harold Ramis… and well, he wasn’t impressed.

Murray reportedly shredded the script, re-packaged it and mailed it back to Aykroyd and Ramis along with the following note: “No-one wants to pay money to see fat, old men chasing ghosts.”

That said, Aykroyd is not a man who gives up on Ghostbusters 3 very easily. There’s legs in this story yet.
