Bill Murray Confirms What We Already Know, Says 'Ghostbusters 3' Doesn't Have A "Good Script"

Has it been three years already since the increasingly tired and boring rumors and speculation about "Ghostbusters 3" have been kicking around? Well, despite the fact that no one except Dan Aykroyd seems interested in making this thing, Bill Murray is pretty much the lynchpin if this movie ever moves forward. But that won't happen until the script is brought up to par, which has pretty much been the story since day one.

Bill Murray, scream awards

Has it been three years already since the increasingly tired and boring rumors and speculation about "Ghostbusters 3" have been kicking around? Well, despite the fact that no one except Dan Aykroyd seems interested in making this thing, Bill Murray is pretty much the lynchpin if this movie ever moves forward. But that won't happen until the script is brought up to par, which has pretty much been the story since day one.

Hitting "The Late Show With David Letterman" last week, the subject of "Ghostbusters 3" was brought up -- again -- and an obviously thoroughly disinterested Bill Murray gave an update. "That's about all they want to know at Cannes, too...But, um...They just don't have a really good script. It's hard. Even the second 'Ghostbusters' wasn't as much fun for me as the first one. It's hard to make a sequel. That first one was really funny. It was just so darn funny, it's hard for me..."

Pressed if there will be another crack at "Ghostbusters 3," Murray unconvincingly added, "We'll try...." Good luck Dan.

It's pretty easy to read between the lines here -- or even his body language -- Murray seems pretty much uninterested and would rather talk or be doing about anything and everything else. Speaking of which, Murray once again proved he remains eternally awesome this weeked. During a rain delay in the fourth inning of a game between the Charleston Riverdogs (of which he is part owner) and the Savannah Sand Gnats, Murray hit the slip and slide to entertain the fans. Can we just a get found footage movie of Murray doing stuff? Watch below. [Total Film/Filmdrunk]
