In an interview in the UK on Channel 4 [via AICN], Sigourney Weaver has released more info on the long-rumored Ghostbusters 3 than we’ve ever received. Weaver says while her role may be small, her character’s son Oscar, who was kidnapped in the second film by a crazed Peter MacNicol, has grown up and become a ghostbuster. But Ms. Weaver had an even greater revelation:
“I might be in it and I see nothing wrong with being in it, although I don’t think I will have a big part in it. I think Bill Murray has a little more to do with it – he might be a ghost.”
So will Oscar have to bust Venkman? Will Venkman begin a torrid love affair with Slimer? What does it all mean? Well, nothing right now. The Office co-executive producers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky are still working on the script. Perhaps the latest draft Weaver read had these elements, but remember: Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, and Ivan Reitman all have to sign off on the script meaning that these plot points may be gone if Ghostbusters 3 ever gets made. Sadly, no one ever consults Ernie Hudson.
