Bill Murray Shreds 'Ghostbusters 3' Script, Sends It Back to Fellow Ghostbusters

Continuing to increase his own legend while further relegating Ghostbusters 3 to the realm of myth, Bill Murray has reportedly sent Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis a shredded copy of the latest sequel script they sent him for approval. And to reiterate that--while he's cool doing a Garfield sequel--he will not follow-up the mediocrity of Ghostbusters 2, Murray also attached to his paper strip parcel a note reading, "No one wants to pay money to see fat, old men chasing ghosts!" The trueness of that statement will probably long be debated by vodka makers, fanboys, and fetish sites, but the fact remains that Bill Murray seems to be pret-ty sick with this Ghostbusting shit.

Unfortunately, that isn't the end of this hapless sequel's tale. Apparently Aykroyd and Ramis were so offended by the slight that they are now even more resolved to make a film about fat, old men chasing ghosts, and they remain determined to make Ghostbusters 3 without Bill Murray's participation. Then again, all of this news is coming from The National Enquirer, where it appears adjacent to a story titled "BRANGIE THUMB-SUCKING CLAUS CONUNDRUM," so never mind.
