If there were such as thing as “Superbad alumni that are Ghostbusters fans” Bingo, we’d totally be winning right now.
In a recent interview with Collider about his upcoming movie, Get Him To The Greek, discussion turns to rumours (or complete internet fabrications, in French) that he is being lined up for Ghostbusters 3.
Every time Ghostbusters 3 is brought up your name is mentioned for that.
Hill: I have no information about that at all. I wish I did. It would have to be a pretty incredible endeavor for me to want to attempt to work on a movie that is a lineage of two of my favorite movies ever. I don’t feel worthy of a task that big.
But they might be bringing in new people.
Hill: That being said, if I have the opportunity to work with Bill Murray in ‘Boner Party 7′ for some reason I would do it. Bill Murray is my acting hero.
So you’re not hating on ‘Ghostbusters II’?
Hill: No. I love ‘Ghostbusters II’. I love it. It’s great.
It’s not the same as the first though.
Hill: It’s not the same but it’s not a bad movie. It’s not a sequel where you’re like, ‘Oh my God, why did you do that?’ It’s not ‘Legend of Curly’s Gold’.
He kind of wanders off into his Theory of Sequels from that point on, but it’s already enough confirmation that not only did his character in Superbad own a Real Ghostbusters lunchbox (proof of Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg’s fannishness more than anything), he actually likes the movie, both movies, for reals.
