Right. For the first time ever, the film is officially in pre-production; the script is in the revision stage and design work has been underway for a few months. This is the closest it's ever been to actually happening.

I like the "Bill as ghost" concept.
I have a hunch that Venkman gets killed off in the early goings, prompting the Ghostbusters to realize that, to borrow a phrase from another series, they're too old for this shit. This leads to the hiring of the "new Ghostbusters," who, while proving themselves capable, are no match against the ultimate threat, leading the originals to suit up again and save the day. And then there's a Venkman ghost cameo shoved in there.
I really don't care at this point, personally. The more I think about it the more I feel that the video game was a nice way of letting this thing rest. I really don't want to see a sequel anymore, if everything I've been reading lately is going to come to fruition. I guess I'm being one of those people who don't want their memories of the franchise altered. I'm usually pretty good about keeping an open mind for these sorts of things, but I just can't seem to do it in this case. I don't want to see another movie.

Moranis is very mercurial, and he enjoys retirement very much. I have no doubt that everyone would like him to return, but I doubt he will unless the script knocks his socks off.

As for GB3 though I don't have much faith in these writters I am glad, after all look what happened last time Dan tried to revive a hit 80's movie of his.

Apparently his wife died, and he's focusing his time with his kids.

Not "apparently" -- his wife passed away in 1991 from liver cancer, and he took what was intended to be a hiatus, appearing in maybe a movie a year, from acting for a while to raise his children, who were very young at the time (although they're grown, now). Eventually, he realized that he didn't miss making movies all that much, and that hiatus became retirement, only coming out for small things like a voice role in Brother Bear. He had made his money in the '80s and early '90s, and he had spent it wisely, so he didn't need to work. Good for him.

Indeed. It's a shame many other comedic actors from his era didn't take a similar route. (Not the wife dying thing, but the "made my money and I don't need to work" thing.)

^ Some people actually still like the work to continue doing it.

(Not saying that was Moranis's case; he had other things going on and found a new direction in life.)

Re: Bill Murray Confirms Ghostbusters III Rumor

Die Hard 4=great
Indy 4=pretty good
Rambo 4=great
Rocky 6=great

The 80's revival of hit franchises this decade has a good track record.
Let's see if they can keep it rolling!

Murray as a ghost could work fine. I think Bill has actually put himself, unknowingly?, into always being the face of the franchise. As a ghost he can always return wheras the other GB's will die and be a memory only. Ghost-Venkman could be a "guiding spirit" to future GB's, especially in novel or comic books.

I suggest unknowingly because it seems like he wants a way out of future installments when really he's more cemented now in this capacity I think.

Die Hard 4 = good, if restrained by an OTT plot and the PG-13 rating.
Indy 4= Utter crap.
Rocky 6 = The only sequel worth mentioning.

I wouldn't mind him recording another album, that's for sure.

That might be old news. From what I heard, he was in at one point, then dropped out again. I hope something happens and he does come back.

I clicked on the link in that article and noticed that they mentioned Murray returning as a slimer ghost and I thought... Okay, things just got a little worse. It's bad enough that the latest news has him as a ghost, but now he'll be a cartoonish green blob? Then I watched the video interview with Reitman and saw that it was just the interviewer casually asking about Bill as a "slimer kind of character".

This is sounding a bit like that long banded about Ghostbusters III script.
