In early August, reports surfaced that Ghostbusters 3 would focus on a group of female Ghostbusters. It was also reported that Sony Pictures was targeting Paul Feig, who directed hit female comedies Bridemaids and The Heat, to direct the third Ghostbusters.
At the Toronto Film Festival to premiere his new comedy St. Vincent, Bill Murray has been talking to both press and the fans. According to SchmoesKnow, Murray answered a question about the female Ghostbusters movie that was directed at him by Access Hollywood.
Murray said, “It sounds great to me. It sounds as good an idea as any other! There are a lot of women that could scare off any kind of vapor! No, it’s a grande idea, I don’t know who they’re talking about, but it’s a good idea, I would watch it! I mean, I love Robert Palmer’s videos, so why wouldn’t I love the female Ghostbusters?”
