Bill Murray Addresses Ghostbusters 3 Rumors On Letterman
Bill Murray showed up on Letterman tonight and did what we’ve all been waiting for. He confirmed Ghostbusters 3. Well, sort of.
Actually when asked about the movie he addressed it in a somewhat skeptical tone. With Murray though, it’s hard to tell if he’s joking. Does he really believe it won’t happen or is he simply playing the disinterested celebrity to ham it up for the crowd? Your guess is as good as mine. But what he did do with some degree of certainty is confirm what we’ve been hearing about the plot, if it happens.
Addressing his role in the sequel Murray says, “I told them if they killed me off in the first reel I’d do it. So now they figured out a way to kill me off in the first reel.” Since he said it on national television, I think it’s safe to pull this out of spoiler territory. This confirms the rumors we’ve been hearing for months now that Murray would appear in the film as a ghost. Except it sounds like, for at least some of the film, he’ll still be breathing. Does that mean we’ll see Venkman die on screen? Or does it mean Venkman will simply get killed off and not appear in the film as a ghost as we’d all hoped? Maybe this doesn’t answer as many questions as I’d hoped.
