Ghostbusters 3 no go without Bill Murray

Ghostbusters 3 no go without Bill Murray - Director Ivan Reitman is waiting on Bill Murray's approval to begin work on the new Ghostbusters sequel, because he has to win over the Hollywood actor before they can even think about filming.

The filmmaker is ready to step behind the camera once more to shoot the third installment of the spooky story, 21 years after directing the last film in the franchise in 1989.

All four of the original 1984 Ghostbusters - Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson - have signed on to reprise their characters in the forthcoming project - but Reitman has urged fans not to believe everything they hear, because a lot of the other casting details are pure speculation.

Ghostbusters 3 no go without Bill Murray

He tells, "There is almost nothing that is accurate online about that film. There is nothing ... I mean, all these stories ... there has been a ton of stuff about casting, about who's in... None of it is true (sic)."

And the director reveals pleasing the Lost In Translation star with Aykroyd's finished script is top of his to-do list - although he warns they my face a little wait before they hear back from the actor.

Reitman says, "We have a really good script, but Bill Murray has to read it. He hasn't read it. There has been all kinds of chatter online about him reading it and not liking it. He has not read a thing. He's never read anything. And I just sent it to him. So we'll see. God knows how long that will take. But we'll see."

And screenwriters have made room for another high-profile original castmember in the new story - they want Sigourney Weaver to return as Dana Barrett.

I thought these issues had already been ironed out. Apparently I was wrong. Although I do agree with the fact that if Bill Murray isn't in the film, it wouldn't be the same and shouldn't get made, I'm also disappointed with how much is riding on one person. What a diva.

It would be like doing a Back to the Future 4 movie without Michael J. Fox. Some movies aren't worth seeing if the people who helped made it successful aren't in it.

I would really love to see a third ghostbusters film with the original four. That being said the story should revolve around the original team but then i read reports that the script would be about introducing a new team. If thats the case then i dont care to see it, i dont care to see a new generation of ghostbusters or the passing of the torch kind of movie where the original ghostbusters make cameos that would be GOD AWFUL. If they do go that route they would just alienate and cheat the fans that are anxious to see another Ghostbusters movie. As old as the actors are i would hope they can make a story that centers the orginal ghostbusters cause even if it was a bad movie i would still enjoy it as long as they didnt do the obvious route of introducing a new team. Murray if you do read this do the movie with this in mind other wise dont! Everybody wants a third Ghostbusters movie but do we really want to see an introduction movie of a new team HELL NO!

Don't need Bill Murray. Didn't like him in the other Ghost Busters. I am sure it will be a great film without him.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
