The good news is that Bill Murray has finally signed on Ghostbusters 3 and for Ghostbusters 4. He was holding off signing on Ghostbusters 3 because he was worried it would all go wrong. I can see his concerns. Hopefully, signing up for Ghostbusters 4 will make up for the delay in Ghostbusters 3.
Murray is still insisting on taking the Peter Venkman in a new direction. There’s speculation on the web that Venkman may actually be a ghost in the movies. In an interview with Popeater, Ivan Reitman said;
“Bill had a lot of say in how Venkman would return to the screen. He’s really excited to take the character in a new direction”
This may sound cool but it would also suggest that Murray may only play a supporting role in the movie.
It’s likely we’ll see new ghostbusters in the team too. Plots for both Ghostbusters 3 and 4 have featured the team training a new generation of, well, younger, ghostbusters!
Or… April Fool.
