For those hoping for a “Ghostbusters 3,” Bill Murray hinted the project might have a little life left in it.
During Thursday’s (June 7) interview on “Late Show with David Letterman,” Murray tells the host that he’s willing to “try again” on the hit comedy franchise.
“It’s got to be really funny and that first one was so darn funny. I think we’ll try again,” Murray says. “You’ve just got to have a really good script…Even the second ‘Ghostbusters’ wasn’t as funny for me as the first one. It’s hard to make a sequel.”
There have been numerous fits and starts for the project. But the concept gained steam recently after Dan Aykroyd spoke more of his interest in the movie. During a February webchat on Empire Online, Aykroyd says, “The script must be perfect. We cannot release a film that is any less than that.”
The first two “Ghostbusters” movies went on to make more than $500 million worldwide. The film also spawned a cartoon series, video games and comic books.
