While promoting Fantastic Mr Fox
in London Bill Murray has shed further light on the mysterious Ghostbusters 3
project. In a typically honest interview with British radio station Absolute, Murray also discusses his role as a badger in Mr Fox and the difficulties that come with making sequels.
It's over 20 years since Ghostbusters 2
but hopes are that all the original cast will reunite for a third installment including the retired Rick Moranis, lets face it though, if they don't manage to convince Murray to do the film then they might as well just forget it. His brilliant dead pan delivery is what made the original so great.
Murray has had an interesting career since the Ghostbuster films, combining mainstream Hollywood roles with more interesting parts in arthouse and independent films. Along with his numerous roles in Wes Anderson films, Murray is also a regular in the films of American-indie great Jim Jarmusch and earlier this year appeared in his film The Limits of Control
. The minimalist style of Jarmusch and also of the Jarmusch influenced Sofia Coppola(Lost in Translation
) seems to be perfectly suited to Murray' laid back style of acting. Arguably though, Murray's best performance to date is in the comedy classic Groundhog Day
, in which he plays a world weary TV meteorologist who gets stuck in a time loop.
Are you looking forward to Ghostbusters 3
? Will it even go ahead? and do you agree with my choice of Murray's best performance?
