'Ghostbusters 3' without Bill Murray?
After years of delays and rumors, could "Ghostbusters 3" finally be hitting the big screeen? According to star Dan Aykroyd, "yes." Appearing on Dennis Miller's radio show "The Dennis Miller Show" on Thursday, Aykroyd said they had an "excellent script," will shoot in the spring of 2012 and would go ahead without the involvement of Billy Murray if necessary.
"What we have to remember is that 'Ghostbusters' is bigger than any one contributor to it," Aykroyd said during the interview." While Billy was absolutely the lead and was a massive contributor as was the director, Harold, myself, Sigourney. Y'know, the concept is bigger than any individual role and the promise of 'Ghostbusters 3' is that we get to hand the equipment and the franchise down to new blood."
As for that new blood, Aykroyd specifically mentioned "Criminal Minds" star Matthew Gray Gubler as a possible new "Ghostbuster."
No word from Sony Pictures if Aykroyd's claims are legit and/or if a confirmed director is on board. To hear more click here.
