We’ve been enamored by the Ghostbusters for more than 25 years, however the hope for a successful third film in the franchise remains questionable.
Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, and director Ivan Reitman have been hard at work prepping for the film, all while waiting for co-star Bill Murray to sign on the dotted line, but it’s reached the point where they feel as if they will need to move forward without the funnyman, as it’s just not in the cards for him.
Aykroyd revealed to ‘The Telegraph,’ “It’s a surety that Bill Murray will not do the movie.”
The actor adds, “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.”
