Part 73948 of the Ghostbusters 3 Saga: The New Writers
by Jamie Frevele | 12:31 pm, July 3rd, 2012
And so it goes, another day in the life of Ghostbusters 3, the storied sequel that will probably never happen, but that Dan Aykroyd continues to keep alive no matter how many times Bill Murray tries to kill it. And then resurrect it for the sole purpose of messing with our precious minds. And now, Aykroyd is saying that they have hired new writers, coincidentally (or not) right after Murray appeared on Letterman saying it’s going to come down to the script for him.
I’m going to bang my head into a brick wall once I’m done finishing this post. You are all welcome to join me.
If you’ve been following this epic case of cinematic blue balls, you probably heard that the two writers in charge of the script for Ghostbusters 3 were Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky (The Office, Year One, Bad Teacher). You probably also heard that Bill Murray has been rumored to have “shredded” a draft of the script then said he wouldn’t be involved. And then he said if the script was good, he’ll think about. Or just do it. It’s Bill Murray, he does what he wants, and he’s kind of earned the right to do that.
But now, Dan Aykroyd, who appeared at an Amherst, NY liquor store to promote his Crystal Head Vodka, is saying that this is still very much ongoing, and it appears that Eisenberg and Stupnitsky have gotten the boot:
“We’ve got a new writing staff working on it now,” Aykroyd said. “It’s got to be prefect. That’s the whole thing. There’s no point in doing it unless it’s perfect. So that’s what we’re up to now.”
He didn’t give any names on who might be a part of that writing staff. But this is basically an echo of what Murray said a couple of weeks earlier on Letterman:
“You know, you just gotta have a really good script. It’s hard. Even the second ‘Ghostbusters’ wasn’t as much fun for me as the first one. It’s hard to make a sequel. It’s gotta be really funny, and that first one was just so darn funny.”
Expect to hear from Murray in about three to six weeks, saying that he will, unequivocally, not be doing Ghostbusters 3, unless he ultimately decides to do Ghostbusters 3, which is probably never actually going to happen.
