Re: Bill Murry = TOOL or very smart?

How are Ghostbuster FANS feeling entitled? When it's been Ackroyd who has been pushing for the third movie for what seems like ever? It very well COULD be worse than "Ghostbusters II" I think that's perhaps one of the reasons why Murray didn't want any part of it, as I said, we pretty much know his feelings regarding his experience on "Ghostbusters II".

From what I read about the story they're moving on without Murray so conversations about his involvement from this point forward seem moot.

Re: Bill Murry = TOOL or very smart?

I don't know how the original even qualifies as comedy. That was some, slow, boring shit. Maybe the franchise holds no nostalgia value for me cause I never watched any GBs as a kid, and only gave the first a shot recently. Anyway, think Murray (love all his work with Wes Anderson) made a quality choice here.

I can handle Ghostbusters without Murray.
I can't believe that I'm the only one.

Re: Bill Murry = TOOL or very smart?

You're not the only one, I just think that fans would give this a chance depending on what the story is with or without Murray. It's hard to think of a Ghostbusters film without Venkman.

Re: Bill Murry = TOOL or very smart?

I think Bill Murray is the only one of the bunch who is still funny. If Murray isn't in the movie then they're going to need to get somebody as funny as him to fill the gap.

Re: Bill Murry = TOOL or very smart?

Steve Carrell would be awesome. He's been long rumoured, especially when the two Office writers were working on drafts. Seth Rogen of course was rumoured to play a grown up Oscar. I think Ackyrod mentioned being interested in Alyssa Milano and Eliza Dushku playing roles in the film as well. Casting is going to be very interesting.

Let's face it; it's being made for an entirely new generation. It would be better if the entire cast were new faces.

Re: Bill Murry = TOOL or very smart?

Bill Murray had a pretty significant role as himself in Zombieland, so I wonder if Woodie Harrelson would take on the role?

Can't say I've ever thought of it as a comedy either.

Action adventure with the odd funny moment perhaps, but not a comedy.

And I say that with it being the first DVD I bought.

But then I have a fondness for the 2nd one

Of course being in the UK and 8 at the time it was released I was never aware of the the actors' backgrounds in comedy.

Re: Bill Murry = TOOL or very smart?

Moonrise Kingdom was one of the best films of the year so far and Bill Murray was deadpannedly hilarious in it. I'd say he knows what he's doing when he signs on to do another Wes Anderson movie and passes on making Ghostbusters into a trilogy (particularly given the low likelihood the film would be any good even with his involvement).

People think that Bill's trying to play chicken, or upset that he's holding out for quality, or think that he'd be upset if the movie started out with his funeral. He'd probably love that last idea because then he wouldn't have to worry about people bugging the shit out of him about it anymore.
Ah, but do you really think killing off his character would make people stop wanting him to be in a movie series about ghosts?

Re: Bill Murry = TOOL or very smart?

Has there ever been a case where returning to a franchise after so long has yielded positive results? Godfather 3 and Tron Legacy were both mediocre, and I'm blanking on other examples right now.

Re: Bill Murry = TOOL or very smart?

It seems like Murray's been reluctant to reprise his role in a Ghostbusters sequel for a long time. This really isn't news. Clearly he isn't interested in revisiting that role. He's entitled to that. Plus, you have to wonder what the script(s) have been like that may have been given to him, or what story ideas were pitched. Maybe they're great. Maybe they're horrible. He's not hurting and in desperate need to find work, so he can be picky about what projects he signs on for.
