Welcome to The Morning Read.
There's a wee bit of "duh" running rampant around the internet this morning in some of the headlines, but considering I ran a story this weekend clarifying what "Jurassic Park IV" will NOT be about, I guess we are filling column inches any way we can.
For example, Bill Murray and Harold Ramis and Ivan Reitman and Sigourney Weaver have all said in interviews in the past that the only way Murray would return for a new "Ghostbusters" film would be if they killed him off early and had him return as a ghost. And now, Murray has confirmed that he will indeed die in the first reel of "Ghostbusters 3" so he can spend the rest of the film as a "free-roaming full-body apparition." I can't say I consider that big news, if only because we've heard it so many times now. I like the idea, but I'm confused... will it be Bill Murray shot in front of a greenscreen? Will the ghost be a CGI character who he only voices, a la "Garfield"? I think the wee bit of speculation that Cinematical added to the story is very interesting, and I hope their bad guy in this film is as smart and fun as the franchise deserves, and not just a rehash of Gozer from the first movie.
