Ghostbusters 3 delay is Bill Murray’s fault

I get excited and immediately depressed whenever reading any bit of news regarding Ghostbusters 3, with this latest tidbit offering more of the same. Bill Murray called into the Howard Stern show recently and was asked about any updates regarding the troubled production surrounding the Ghostbusters 3 movie and he places the blame squarely on his shoulders.

While appearing on The Howard Stern Show today to promote the DVD release of Get Low, Bill Murray set all of the Ghostbusters 3 rumors to rest and explained to all those listening exactly where he stands on the highly-anticipated return of everyone’s favorite paranormal exterminators…

Bill Murray: Yeah, I guess I’m the problem. Before I was an asset, [but] now I’m a problem. There’s a script somewhere [on my desk], but I haven’t read it yet…

…BM: Well, I’ll get to it… I gotta get to it – I feel bad. I got a message and I think people – I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings – it’s not the foremost thing in my mind, so I don’t think about it.

I don’t like anything coming out of this guys mouth when it comes to this movie. I am one of those guys that was born in the 80’s and thoroughly enjoyed my Ghostbusters movie on VHS and the cartoon when it showed after school. There are dozens of stories I wish would have been translated to live action that were in the cartoon, especially those Halloween specials, and I hate the idea that one of the few franchises I think actually need to be re-introduced is getting stalled out at this stage.

I personally think that the idea that a sequel would tarnish his career is foolish. He’s made a lot of awesome movies that have resonated for generations and depriving an audience of Ghostbusters is just selfish, superstitious, and just more than a little bit silly. I hope he changes his mind, or that they find a way to make this movie without him holding things up any longer.
