Murray Back on Ghostbusters 3

Harold Ramis has confirmed it

By Robert T. Trate     December 07, 2012

This news comes as a surprise since before we all believed that the franchise was dead. Harold Ramis has confirmed that Bill Murray will return to the role of Dr. Pete Venkman. had this to report: 
“Co-star Harold Ramis has confirmed the funnyman will be reprising his role as Dr. Peter Venkman in the follow-up to 1989's Ghostbusters II.
The news comes after Murray stunned reporters on the red carpet at the recent Hyde Park on Hudson premiere by revealing he was considering returning to the franchise”. - 
Which is against what Dan Akroyd had said earlier “"He (Murray) won't be involved... It's sad but we're passing it on to a new generation. Ghostbusters 3 can be a successful movie without Bill. My preference would be to have him involved but at this point he doesn't seem to be coming and we have to move on. It's time to make the third one."
All involved were surprised by Murray’s change of mind, yet they know they need him in the film for the fans to get behind it. 

Well what do you think Maniacs? Will Ghostbusters 3 see the light of day now?

 Bill is what made the first all is right in the world today if Bill Murray is on the project. On to the script...

Sure I'll stop reading other news bits that might actually matter to comment on this.

Nobody would deny that it would be great news to Have Bill Murray involved in any type of Ghostbusters movie, but if he changes his mind again I'm gonna design a brand of beach footwear in his honour, everyone will be wearing "Bill Murrays" by 2015!

"'s a dog."

The project wasn't worth doing without him. The story I read was that Murray suddenly called Ramis in the middle of the night out of the blue and said he'd do it. I wonder if it was that way. I also wonder why he didn't want to do it for so long then changed his mind. Mo' money?

Things I will not believe in until I see them with my own eyes: Ghosts, UFOs, the Aliens driving said UFO, Yeti, Bigfoot, Loch Ness Monster and Ghostbusters 3.

From what I have read, Bill Murray owns a big stake in the franchise and must show some sort of interest in the property to maintain his controlling interests.  Perhaps that's what's driving his sudden interest in the project.

GB3 without Murray is a waste of time and I'm hoping the stars align and production gets going soon.

 What will come first??

Ghostbusters 3, a Justice League Movie,  or the Manny vs Mayweather fight???  tough to say, tough to say.....

Darth Bob & Wish are right.  I'll believe this when I see it for myself.

Now if we can just get confirmation that Seth Rogan, Jonah Hill, Michael Cera or anyone similar are NOT involved, that would also make me happy.  :)

 I guess they added enough zero's on to the end of the paycheck number! LOL Bill Murray rules so I am down for Ghost Busters 3. Bring it on. I hope it is better than GB2 though.

I still think that they should bring in some of the new comic talents like Seth Rogen, Steve Carell, Jonah Hill(DAMN HE GOT SKINNY!!!), Jack Black, or Zach Galifianakis to pass on the torch and inject some new juice into the crew.

 Too goo to be true, I'll believe it when I see it!

 This is a hoax! Bill Murray wil NOT be in the next Ghostbusters. Dan Aykroyd has even confirmed this as a hoax.
