Has Bill Murray Shredded the Ghostbusters 3 script!?

If this latest rumour is anything to go by, you can expect not to see Peter Venkman gunning for Slimer again anytime soon.

Bill Murray, who we all know has been reluctant to reprise his Ghostbuster role for the long-planned “Ghostbusters 3″, has apparently looked at the script….. as it minced it’s way through a paper shredder!

The National Enquirer is reporting that Murray, who word had it hadn’t bothered to read the script for the film yet, has now solidified his non-involvement in the sequel.

Murray, who’s got script approval, kept refusing to take producers’ phone calls after they’d send rewrites.

Then, after they sent him the latest reworked screenplay weeks ago, Murray fired back his shocking answer – nailing the coffin shut forever – by sending Dan and Harold a box containing the new script SHREDDED into confetti, along with this nasty note: “No one wants to pay money to see fat, old men chasing ghosts!”

Insiders say furious Dan and Harold vow that Bill’s off their “who ya gonna call” list forever – and they’ll make the movie WITHOUT him!

Just one thing, wasn’t Sony only going to pony up for “Ghostbusters 3″ if Murray agreed to do it? Shit, and what does this mean for the whole ‘Venkman is a Ghost’ subplot, not to mention Dana?

If Venkman isn’t involved in the film, will the film now have any use for Sigourney Weaver’s character, Dana, being that she was Murray’s on-screen love interest?

In the version of the script Murray sent to heaven, it’s believed Venkman would be as Ghost. Think they’ll just do a switcheroo, and have Wynston (Ernie Hudson) be the spite? Maybe they can entice Rick Moranis back with a ‘You get to rattle chains and make funny noises?’ style pitch and have his character be the deceased?

Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson are believed to be locks for the Ivan Reitman directed “Ghostbusters 3″, with Sigourney Weaver and Rick Moranis rumoured to be involved in some capacity too. The film will see a group of new Ghostbusters, including a female (Aykroyd has mentioned Eliza Dushku as a possibility), inheriting the proton packs of the seasoned company chiefs.
