Bill Murray ‘Ghostbusters III’ Cast
Ghostbusters III, officially has Bill’s stamp of approval! Bill told the site on Sept. 7, “I’m fine with it,” he says. “I would go to that movie, and they’d probably have better outfits, too.”
While he will not be involved with the project he definitely had some great ideas of which ladies should star in the film, including his St.Vincent co-star, Melissa McCarthy.
“Melissa would be a spectacular Ghostbuster. And Kristen Wiig is so funny — God, she’s funny! I like this girl Linda Cardellini (“Mad Men”) a lot. And Emma Stone is funny. There are some funny girls out there.”
Bill is not the only one who is excited about the project! While Melissa revealed to the site that she has not been approached, she thinks the idea of making another Ghostbusters is a great idea!
“I think that somebody is really trying to do it, but nobody has talked to me about it,” she revealed. “Listen, if the people I think are doing it are doing it, I must never question them.”
While she would like to see another movie, she is not sure how she feels about suiting up and fighting the ghosts herself. “Oh, my God, that’s daunting. That’s taking on a legend, a legendary movie. But I would do anything with those ladies, anything at all.”
According to the Huffington Post, Paul Feig, who directed Bridesmaids is currently in negotiations to direct the next chapter of Ghostbusters! Given the success of that film, maybe Paul would want to work with Melissa, Kristen and possibly even the hilarious, Maya Rudolph again!
With so many great and funny female actresses, maybe there will just have to be more than three Ghostbusters this time around!
