This is one of those ‘I’ll believe it when I see it’ situations but we can officially say we have seen it. Dan Aykroyd has gone on the record on the Greg Hill Radio Show to confirm that Murray is back along with everyone else.
Jason Reitman wrote a beautiful, heartfelt script that takes the real DNA from the first two movies and transfers that directly to the third. The next generation, hands the legacy off to a new generation of stars and players and actors and characters. We’ve shot our part, myself, Murray, Sigourney, and Annie Potts, and it was really exciting working on this new idea. A new take on the story, which Jason, who’s a really incredible and fine filmmaker, came up with. So I’m pretty excited. … You don’t know what’s gonna be a hit or not, but I have really good feelings for this, just because of the quality of the stars we’ve got there. We’ve got some really terrific young actors, and a great story, a great setting. It’s gonna be scary, it’s gonna be thought provoking, it’s gonna be very heartfelt. You’ll feel it, if you have loved ones that you miss and you’ve lost and you want to get back with, it’s gonna be evocative in that way.”
With Ghostbusters 2020 having wrapped at the end of October, this news is very welcome. Murray to this point was the only Ghostbuster not confirmed to return.
