Bill Murray: Ghostbusters 3 not going ahead
Speaking to GQ, the actor, who played Dr Peter Venkman in the original Ghostbusters film, said the sequel will probably not be made because of the commercial failure of Year One, which was penned by possible Ghostbusters 3 writers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky.
"It's a crock. There was a story - and I gotta be careful here, I don't want to hurt someone's feelings.
"Harold Ramis said, 'Oh, I've got these guys, they write on The Office, and they're really funny. They're going to write the next Ghostbusters'."
He said that although he hadn't seen Year One, other people who did, including Ghostbusters cast members said it was "one of the worst things they had ever seen in their lives".
"So that dream just vapourised," he added.
Released in 1984, the first Ghostbusters film starred Dan Aykroyd, Sigourney Weaver and Harold Ramis.
