Two facts: One – we LOVE Bill Murray. Two – we’ve made our peace with Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot.
We think this is a dick move by Murray. What is? You cry!
Well, he’s filmed a scene in the new reboot.
Now, we’re reported that this might happen as far back as last Halloween (here) but we sort of hoped it might not happen. In fact we really didn’t want it to happen.
Why? Well, while we have made our peace, we still think it sucks that the new movie is a reboot and one of the biggest reasons the reboot happened rather than Ghostbusters III was because of Murray’s resistance to allowing the third movie to happen. He was renowned for refusing to approve scripts and since he had a deciding vote, it meant the threequel never transpired.
And now he does this. We just think it’s a bit of a kick in the teeth for anyone who really, above all else, wanted GBIII.
Anyway, EW confirmed the scene is happening and here’s a few pick of him on the set.
Ghostbusters stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones and Chris Hemsworth. It hits theaters on July 22, 2016.
