The third film in the Ghostbusters franchise has been in the works for a long time. One of the main problems was the reluctance of Bill Murray to return to the project. In the early stages of the painting, Dan Aykroyd and Ivan Reitman planned to reboot with a new team of hunters, for whom the former heroes would become mentors. Then Murray was skeptical about the idea and said that he would return only if he was offered the role of a ghost, but in the end he did not give a final answer.|
After a while, Aykroyd and Reitman managed to get the project off the ground without Murray , but even then, making a new film was a daunting task. But when the studio proposed the project to Paul Feig, it turned out that he was not interested in creating a sequel, and instead offered his idea for the development of the franchise. Feig is planning to make a full reboot with some very funny ladies starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Keith McKinton.
Earlier this year, insiders revealed that Bill Murray will still appear in the film. As Collider writes, his return was prompted by the participation in the reboot of actresses such as Wiig and McCarthy , whom he called “the real hope of the project":"I like them very much. How can you resist them? And Gender is a nice guy. ”
There is another reason. Murray is seriously concerned that if the picture comes out without his participation, then it may not be warmly enough: “I thought about this for a long time. Many, many months. And finally I decided that if I don't take part in the filming, then someone will definitely write a bad review based on the fact that I allegedly do not approve of the project. ”
It is not yet clear in what guise the actor will appear in the new film of the franchise. Since the third part is not related to the events of the previous dilogy, he may not return to the role of Peter Venkman . According to rumors, Murray will try on a completely new look, and his hero will also become an ardent opponent of the team of hunters.
The third Ghostbusters will be released on July 28, 2016 .
