Here is the latest trailer for the Avengers (which in the UK is called Marvel Avengers Assemble!):
If you’ve been waiting for Ghostbusters 3, it might be time to find something else to wait for.
In a recent interview with The Telegraph, actor/writer Dan Aykroyd, who has been trying to get Ghostbusters 3 going for a while, appears to be frustrated – and the cause still appears to be fellow Ghostbuster Bill Murray.
“I honestly don’t know. At this point it’s in suspended animation,” he said. “The studio, the director Ivan Reitman and Harold Ramis feel there must be a way to do it, but Bill Murray will not do the movie. He doesn’t want to be involved. He’s got six kids, houses all over America. He golfs in these tournaments where they pay him to turn up and have a laugh. He’s into this life and living it. I know we’d have a lot of fun [but] I can’t be mad at him. He’s a friend first, a colleague second. We have a deep personal relationship that transcends business and he doesn’t want to know.”
There could be other options – the article says they could consider recasting (something that I don’t think would go well for the fans) or making Venkman a CGI ghost (which would likely still require Murray’s approval), and there is always writing him out completely. But in the same vein, they don’t want to make the movie just to make a movie. “We’re not going to do a movie that exploits the franchise,” he added. “The script has to be perfect. I’m the cheerleader, but I’m only one voice in the matter. It’s a surety that Bill Murray will not do the movie, however there is still interest from the studio.”
