Dan Aykroyd has confirmed in a recent interview that his costar on the first two Ghostbusters films, Bill Murray, will not be involved in the long anticipated sequel.
While fans will be left disappointed with the news, it may come as no surprise as he has been one of the the main forces in stalling the production having rejected every script he's been handed, at one point stating he thought one script was so bad he threw it into a shredder.
When asked if the film was finally happening Aykroyd replied:
"Yes, we've got a brilliant new writer on it and we'll be passing the torch on to a new generation. We're working on it to make it just right to satisfy our fans. I'm confident we'll be in production in the next year."
"Yes, but now we've got the studio on side. We've tried a few concepts which weren't right but now we've got a good structure and will make it happen."
And when asked about Murray's involement:
"No, I can tell you he won't be involved."
