“Dan Aykroyd has been talking up Ghostbusters 3 again, but this time there is the implication (or so the outlet reporting it claims) that if Bill Murray doesn’t want to reprise his role as Dr. Peter Venkman for the sequel then the role might be recast.
Akyroyd told Empire there was no truth to the rumors that Murray so despised the script for Ghostbusters 3 that was sent to him recently that he shredded it: “Bill Murray is not capable of such behaviour. This is simply something that would not be in his nature. We have a deep, private personal relationship that transcends business. We communicate frequently and his position on the involvement in Ghostbusters 3 has been made clear and I respect that. But Bill has too much positive estimation of my writing skills to shred the work.”
The site added, “Even more intriguingly, Aykroyd hinted that Bill Murray may not return as Peter Venkman, and that the character could be played by a different actor, a la Jack Ryan.”“
unpopular opinion, but there should be one Ghostbusters movie, 2 should have never been made and three is just pointless, I wish Dan Aykroyd would just shut up about it - no one wants to do it apart from him and probably Jack Black…….
