After months of Dan Aykroyd sifting around in the empty “Ghostbusters” sandbox, promising every and any random person of an eventually awesome third installment, finally some word from another cast member has arrived. Rick Moranis, who left the acting spotlight to raise his family and start a music career, is back with a new album, and during its promotion gave a brief update on the sequel's ever-diminishing chances of actually happening.

Earlier today, original "Ghostbusters" cast member (and co-writer) Dan Aykroyd revealed some details about the proposed "Ghostbusters 3." The project is a thing that, not unlike ghosts, ghouls, and specters, has yet to produce concrete evidence backing up the fact that it actually exists (or ever will). Aykroyd talked about story details, and confirmed that, yes, it is unlikely that Bill Murray will be a part of the new project. Still missing: cast details, a release date, and confirmation that this isn't an elaborate figment of Aykroyd's imagination brought on by drinking too much Crystal Head vodka.

Oh god, no. I mean, interesting news on the "Ghostbusters 3" front today. Dan Aykroyd, the self-appointed "cheerleader" of the "Ghostbusters" had a long sit down with Esquire and of course they delved into a long conversation about "Ghostbusters 3." The script appears to be done. It appears to be as "ready" as it's ever been (lord, when have we heard that one before). It's apparently the script everyone wants to make and Aykroyd even talks about potential 4th and 5th "Ghostbusters" films. Have mercy.

"Ghostbusters"
So much for shooting next summer, a timetable that was recently unveiled. "Ghostbusters 3" has been delayed yet again, and a decision on whether the film will go forward or not won't be reached until March of 2013, which means the earliest the film could shoot is next fall.

Well, that was fast. Just a brief hint of an idea earlier today, the Tom Cruise sci-fi vehicle "Our Name Is Adam" is already earning big time attention from a studio that has been putting some big faith in the actor. Meanwhile, another project looks like it's being given its walking papers.

“We have a way of doing it,” director Ivan Reitman insisted in January 2011 about a compelling way to make a third "Ghostbusters" film. “I wasn’t going to do it until we found out [what that way was], and it is a generational story, actually – it’s effectively a generational story and it’s very well written. We’ll see if it actually gets made. It’s a scary thing to think about for me, because I’m fucking with my past, but at the same time, I don’t just want to chicken out on the challenge. But it’s a great story and great characters.”

He was a good sport enough to spoof himself and the film in 2009's "Zombieland" (which you can see below) and at the 2010 Spike TV Scream Awards, but enough is apparently enough. It's official: Bill Murray won't reprise his role as Peter Venkman in "Ghostbusters 3," according to Dan Aykroyd himself. "No, I can tell you he won't be involved," Aykroyd said after being asked about Murray's participation for what has to be the umpteenth time.

How much money do you have to spend before Bill Murray says "Yes"? That's the question Sony is hoping to eventually find an answer to as development on "Ghostbusters 3" improbably continues in the vain hope the studio can create a blockbuster 23 years after "Ghostbusters II" that will have audiences flocking to theaters. Hell, if they can make people care about "Men In Black 3" a decade after the second movie, anything is possible right?

"We'll try again," Bill Murray said recently on David Letterman, alluding to the status of the long-gestating "Ghosbusters 3" at Columbia Pictures. And so what's happening with the proposed after-the-fact threequel? Well, while Murray didn't exactly spell it out, recent news seems to confirm all suspicions: the most recent drafts of "Ghostbusters 3" have been thrown in the trash and inveterate "Ghosbusters" champion and producer Dan Aykroyd is starting over.

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.
