The quest to get Bill Murray to agree to make Ghostbusters 3 continues. After all, the movie won’t happen without him. The latest from director Ivan Reitman is that Bill has seen their current script, or the cover at least. That’s just one of the tidbits he dropped about the project in an interview with Digital Spy. But we all knew Bill has seen other versions of the script (and trashed them). What’s more surprising is who Ivan Reitman is considering casting in the film with him.

The movie is supposed to be about the original Ghostbusters teaming up with a new generation of slime-fighters, and that means finding young Hollywood talent to fill out those roles. Young Hollywood talent like… Ashton Kutcher? Ivan Reitman seems to think that’s a good idea. He directed Kutcher recently on the film No Strings Attached and when asked, with Ashton sitting beside him, if Kutcher could make his way into the movie Retiman says it’s, “absolutely possible.”

The devil’s in the details though. That could be just one of those throw-away statements to indicate that anything’s possible and it might not mean it’s something he’s given serious thought. Except, well, when he said it Ashton Kutcher was sitting next to him and if you read the body language between the two of them, it almost seems like there’s something there. This is of course, all just wild speculation about unknowable intentions, but, here, watch the interview for yourself:


Now that you’ve watched it, what do you think? Is there anything to this or was Reitman just being polite?
