We can all breathe a little bit easier today — Bill Murray has given his blessing to Ghostbusters 3. When the update/reboot, to be penned by The Office’s Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, was confirmed earlier this month, it was also announced that there’d be roles for the entire original cast. We weren’t quite sure if Murray would be game, seeing as he’s the only truly in-demand actor left in the bunch (with apologies to Ernie Hudson). But at Fantastic Fest yesterday, where he was to plug his new movie City of Ember, he sounded all for it: “The wounds from Ghostbusters 2 have healed,” he said to big laughs. Murray also said that “the first forty minutes of Ghostbusters is about as funny as a movie gets.” (Has he already forgotten Osmosis Jones?!)
