In recent news, it looks like Bill Murray finally agreed to reprise his role as Dr. Peter Venkeman in the upcoming Ghostbusters 3, and a possible 4th movie depending on how well the third one does. Right now, very little detail is revealed about the plot, but it does involve the old ghostbusters crew training their young recruits that are set to take their place. Sony did say that if audiences love the new recruits, then you can expect them to move forward with the characters in a future film. Therefore, what are your thoughts on this?
Oh, I'm definitely curious how they're going to do it! It's been such a LONG time since the first two,though....are they going to make it "cooler"...more CG, probably.....are the others coming back to reprise their roles, also?
Believe it or not, I was actually there when it happened. This is exactly how the whole thing went down.
*At the bar where Bill has a half empty bottle of Jack Daniels and a shot glass*
Bill: Oh man, my life sucks. One cameo in another Coppola film and two Garfield movies. That's what my life has come to.
Bartender: Hey, it's not all bad. You've had a wonderful career. Everyone peters out once in a while. Pretty soon you'll be back on your feet and everyone will be glad to see you!
Bill: Thanks Jimmy, but really, I think it's just time for me to retire. I've got nothing to give any more.
*A strange man walks up to Bill and places a piece of paper on the bar in front of him*
SM: *in a deadpan tone* Oh wow. It's Bill Murray. Sir, can I have your autograph, I'm a huge fan.
Bill: Oh, isn't that cute. Do you have a pen?
SM: Sure, just go ahead and sign right at the bottom there.
Bill signs without looking and the man bolts.
Bill: You know that's the best way to end this day.
*Outside the bar, Harold Ramis tears off the disguise he was wearing. Dan Akroyd is standing there in his thin t-shirt, his and torn ripped jeans, shivering in the cold, blowing into his hands to keep warm*
Dan: Did Bill sign the contract?
Harold: *Shows Dan the contrac* Without even looking at it. Just like last time.
