In a recent interview Bill Murray, who’s currently promoting the upcoming DVD release for ‘Fantastic Mr Fox’, talked about the long-standing rumor regarding the fate of Dr. Peter Venkman in the ‘Ghostbusters’ series.
“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,” says Murray.
While out promoting Avatar back in December, Sigourney Weaver let this spoiler out while talking to the press. According to Murray’s quote, it seems that the rumor could be true.
Writers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky (The Office) are currently revising their first draft of ‘Ghostbusters 3’. Ivan Reitman confirmed earlier this year that he’d be returning to the director’s chair to helm the sequel. And Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson are all expected to return.
