Bill Murray: Ghostbusters 3 a dream

Bill Murray has branded Ghostbusters 3 "just a kind of a dreamy thing" after revealing problems with the script.
The 59-year-old actor - who starred as Dr Peter Venkman in the first two cult hit instalments of the Ghostbusters' adventures - told Coming Soon the long-awaited third instalment had hit another barrier.
Bill implied the flop of Harold Ramis' 2009 comedy Year One was responsible as Year One writers and The US Office writers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky had been working on drafts of Ghostbusters 3.
He said: "These guys that were supposedly the writers that were going to do it. They wrote a film that came out and people saw the film [assumed to be Year One] and went... 'We're not going to do it after all, are we?' So it's just a kind of a dreamy thing. They want to create a new generation of Ghostbusters, you know? They'd just like us to pass the torch."
Now Bill seems to be getting sceptical about making a sequel at all.
He said: "We made a great movie and then we made another one, you know? So we went to the well twice and it's almost impossible to do the second movie as well.
"I actually thought the other day - it's just become so irritating - but I actually heard people like, young people that really [heard] of the movie when they were kids and I thought, 'You know, maybe I should just do it. Maybe it'd be fun to do.' Because the guys are funny and I miss [Rick] Moranis and Annie [Potts] and Danny [Ackroyd]. Those people are some people that were really, you know, I miss them."
