Dan Aykroyd hires new writers for Ghostbusters 3… again

For the third, maybe fourth, maybe tenth time, Dan Aykroyd has fired the screenwriters working on Ghostbusters 3 to bring on a new team of writers. How many years, how many tries, how many pointless negotiations with Bill Murray will it take for Ghostbusters 3 to happen? A hell of a lot apparently, but god bless Aykroyd for having persistance.

One of the driving forces that is preventing this movie from happening is the claim that Bill Murray didn’t like the script written by Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky. In fact, this issue dragged on for so long, Sony had to put it on hold until they could get it right.

But in a surprise move, Murray said he was willing to give Ghostbusters 3 another go. Well it appears that Eisenberg and Stupnitsky listened, or Sony did, as there is a new writing staff on board that will pen the script that will hopefully become Ghostbusters 3.

Here’s the exact quote from Dan Aykroyd talking to a WIBV correspondent (via Slashfilm).

We’ve got a new writing staff working on it now. It’s got to be perfect. That’s the whole thing. There’s no point in doing it unless it’s perfect. So that’s what we’re up to now.

So it looked like that there was a mostly finished script in place and it seemed absolutely certain that Bill Murray wasn’t going to be in Ghostbuster 3 and now he says he is and his input is what caused the current script to be trashed? Just fucking do it already.
