If you’re trying to stay in the dark for as long as possible on Ghostbusters 3, this article ain’t for you. Move along. For the rest of us, Bill Murray confirmed his role as a ghost in the upcoming installment in the franchise. Murray told The Mail:
I’ll come back in Ghostbusters III only if I get to be a ghost. I said to them, ‘I’ll do it if you kill me off in the first reel.’ So now they are going to have me as a ghost in the film.
Sigourney Weaver first let the information slip back in December while she was doing press for Avatar (she also said that Dana’s son, Oscar, would now be a ghostbuster). In an interview last month, Ivan Reitman confirmed he would direct Ghostbusters 3, but when asked about Weaver’s comments, he would neither confirm nor deny them. But back to Murray’s interview with The Mail, you should read the full piece as it’s both insightful and unguarded.
