Ghostbusters was my favorite movie when I was a kid. The rumors over the last few years have indicated that a third was in the works, with a new crop of Ghostbusters leading the charge. The original Ghostbusters were rumored to be returning in some capacity. It appears now that they won’t make the movie without at least one of them:
Since the story is a passing of the torch, one might assume that it would be possible to do the film without Murray. But in a case of supreme studio loyalty — and smarts, because let’s face it, he’s got the most star power of the bunch — Sony won’t give the sequel the green light unless Murray is involved.
I would probably see the movie regardless, but Murray is always good to have.
