Bill Murray Dons 'Ghostbusters' Uniform At Scream Awards; 'Ghostbuster 3' Script Green Lit By Sony?

Look, we realize the last thing in the world this Monday morning needs is another "Ghostbusters 3" story — no one likes beating a dead horse — but things might be slightly looking up.

At the 2010 Scream Awards which took place this weekend and air tomorrow, Tuesday, October 19 at 9p.m. EST, the seemingly implacable Bill Murray relented to his fun side a little and donned his "Ghostbusters" outfit (via Cinemablend) much to the surprise and loud enthusiasm of the audience (Murray accepted the award for the best horror movie “Zombieland” which he had a cameo in). Does this mean Murray's had a change in heart? Mmm, maybe. He did happily reference and spoof "Ghostbusters" in the aforementioned "Zombieland" and that evinced a sense of humor about the franchise, but that didn't preclude him from spitting venom all over the idea of the proposed threequel several times (and he basically did that "Zombieland" cameo as a favor to friend Woody Harrelson). Time will tell and regardless, his part in "Ghostbusters: The New Generation," is said to be extremely small.

Meanwhile, in other potentially optimistic news (though perhaps not the greatest source in the world), Ghostbusters Italia, via Bloody Disgusting, is reporting that Sony has allegedly green-lit the new "Ghostbusters 3" script that Dan Aykroyd was writing with Harold Ramis, now that "The Office" scribes Gene Stupnisky and Lee Eisenberg were apparently kicked to the curb. Considering Aykroyd only recently said he and Ramis were re-writing the script it feels dubious and odd that not only would the new screenplay be complete, but green-lit, but stranger things have happened.

With no start date yet, the earliest we'd likely see this film is 2012, and Sony already has "Spider-Man," "Men In Black 3D" and "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" set for the spring and summer seasons of that year, so our bet is it's likely going to land in 2013. -- Edward Davis
