Bill Murray was a guest on Howard Stern yesterday, and naturally the conversation got around to the much-discussed 'Ghostbusters 3.' In case you're not up to date on the whole 'Ghostbusters 3' saga, the gist is that there's a script and the studio wants to do it and everyone's onboard ... except Bill Murray. Murray hasn't flat-out said no, but he's dragged his feet for so long that it seems as though the project is in serious jeopardy.
When asked if he'd read the 'Ghostbusters 3' script sent to him last year, the enigmatic performer responded, "Well, I'll get to it. I gotta get to it. I feel badly. I got a message. I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings, but it's not the foremost thing in my mind right now, so I don't think about it." Thanks to The Realm Toys for transcribing Murray's interview answers.
This raises an interesting point: If 'Ghostbusters 3' isn't the foremost thing in Murray's mind, why do the rest of us (movie bloggers and fans) continue to lap up every non-story on the topic? 'Ghostbusters 3' has become the 'Evil Dead 4' of the mainstream movie world, a project stuck in neutral that gets more press than many titles already in post-production. Enough already.
