Bill Murray, who has always been reluctant to sign on for a second sequel to his hit 1984 supernatural comedy ‘Ghostbusters,’ is now saying another installment in the franchise is possible, Indiewire is reporting. Director Ivan Reitman, who helmed the original ‘Ghostbusters,’ and co-writers/stars Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis have been trying to make a third entry in the franchise for the past several years, but Murray has always been reluctant to sign on.
Murray has generally asked “do we really need another one?,” and has harshly assessed the franchise’s viability. But when asked during a recent interview with Chicago’s WGNTV about whether he would consider filming another ‘Ghostbusters’ sequel, he said “well, it’s a possibility.”
But Murray evaded the question pretty quickly, and went on to promote his other films that are about to be released. The actor praised Wes Anderson’s ‘Moonrise Kingdom,’ which co-stars Bruce Willis, Tilda Swinton and Edward Norton, calling it one of the funniest projects he’s ever worked on. As for working on ‘A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III,’ Murray said working with lead actor Charlie Sheen was a “piece of cake.”
