Ever since the Ghostbusters left our screens in 1989 it's been a torturous time for fans wanting to see a third movie, as its stars have rather moved on, with Bill Murray carving out a career in highly respected indie movie roles, it's been Dan Aykroyd who's been the driving force behind a third film.
In August Aykroyd said that Murray wouldn't be involved in any new movie, telling The Metro when asked if Murray would be involved: "No, I can tell you he won't be involved."
However we can reveal after chatting to Bill at the premiere of 'Hyde Park On Hudson ' in Leicester Square that the actor, who plays President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in the film, is open to starring in any new Ghostbusters film, as long as the script meets his standards.
He said: "I don't know, they gotta, it's got to be good, they have to write something good."
That's high praise indeed from the actor, who is famously difficult for directors to cast due to his lack of an agent and ex-directory phone number.
Aykroyd said of the new project to The Metro: "Yes, we've got a brilliant new writer on it and we'll be passing the torch on to a new generation. We're working on it to make it just right to satisfy our fans. I'm confident we'll be in production in the next year. It's been a long process, hasn't it? Yes, but now we've got the studio on side. We've tried a few concepts which weren't right but now we've got a good structure and will make it happen."
If Aykroyd is right and the script is as good as he says it is, then that could open the door to a part for Murray, if Aykroyd can get hold of him that is.
