While promoting his new film, No Strings Attached, director Ivan Reitman took time to address the elephant in the room that is Ghostbusters 3. According to Reitman, nearly everything about the film that’s floating around on the Internet is inaccurate, including the rumor that Bill Murray is unhappy about the script. In fact, the director claims Murray has yet to even read it.
“We have a really good script, but Bill Murray has to read it. He hasn’t read it. There has been all kinds of chatter online about him reading it and not liking it. He has not read a thing. He’s never read anything. And I just sent it to him. So we’ll see. God knows how long that will take. But we’ll see.”
I, for one, hope that Murray decides to quit dicking around in Karaoke bars and read the damn thing. It’s not that I’m dying to see another sequel (part two still leaves a bad taste in my mouth). But I am sick to death of writing about it. Shit or get off the pot, Venkman. (Coming Soon via Empire)
