Dan Aykroyd ‘sad’ Bill Murray won’t be in ‘Ghostbusters 3′

If you’re one of the people still holding out hope for a third instalment in the Ghostbusters series, Dan Aykroyd has some good news and bad news for you.

The good news is Ghostbusters 3 is happening. The bad news is Bill Murray will not be returning.

In an interview with UK’s Metro Newspaper, Aykroyd says the film’s storyline is getting an overhaul and will shoot within a year sans Murray.

“We’ve got a brilliant new writer on it and we’ll be passing the torch on to a new generation,” Aykroyd says. “We’re working on it to make it just right to satisfy our fans…. We’ve tried a few concepts which weren’t right but now we’ve got a good structure and will make it happen.”

As for the franchise proceeding without one of its bigger stars, Aykroyd will miss Murray, but thinks audiences will still embrace the film.

“It’s sad but we’re passing it on to a new generation. Ghostbusters 3 can be a successful movie without Bill. My preference would be to have him involved but at this point he doesn’t seem to be coming and we have to move on.”

Following Ghostbusters 2 in 1989, the sci-fi comedy has lived on in comics, an animated show and a 2009 video game co-written by Aykroyd.
