City Lights At The Movies Ghostbuster interviews, 1984!

This… is AWESOME!

Amazing interview footage, promoting Ghostbusters, with Sigourney Weaver, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Rick Moranis, and Ivan Reitman. The guy who uploaded them on YouTube cut out the Ghostbusters clips, and separated the interviews – I’m not even sure I have them in the right order yet – but it’s still over 20 minutes of footage!

Bill Murray on Letterman – CBS releases clip

Bill Murray is on Letterman tonight, apparently, and CBS has released a clip from the appearance, which includes his old anecdote about people catching him humming Ghostbusters on the streets of New York. He also describes GB3 as “his nightmare.” Take is you will.

I’m not putting much faith in AICN’s analysis of the taping, from someone who was in the audience, since people have a terrible time differentiating between the wants of the principles (Dan wants Eliza Dushku in the movie, Bill wants to be killed off, etc.) and the final Sony will (nothing moves ahead until everybody is happy, particularly Sony, who sign the cheques) – particularly as AICN’s spy also reports Bill doesn’t think they movie will get made, but it’s still a very big deal that Bill is talking about it on national late-night like this.

Tune into Letterman tonight to see the whole appearance, but it’s looking like all the GB3 stuff is in the clip above already.

Thanks to Eric/GB2Vigo for the heads-up.


Murray still talking about being a ghost in GB3

Promoting the release of the Fantastic Mr. Fox DVD (already?), Bill Murray sat down with the UK’s Mail On Sunday and talked a lot of topics, capping it off with a couple of comments about Ghostbusters.

I’ll come back in Ghostbusters III only if I get to be a ghost. I said to them, ‘I’ll do it if you kill me off in the first reel.’ So now they are going to have me as a ghost in the film.

The first 45 minutes of the original Ghostbusters is some of the funniest stuff ever made. The second one was disappointing, because the special-effects guys took over. I had something like two scenes – and they’re the only funny ones in the movie.

For the moment, it looks as if someone has told Murray he’ll get his old wish to be killed off in the film. It doesn’t seem the best idea, but if you’re handing the series off to a new team anyhow, keeping Murray around might not be a priority (especially at his salary level.)

Assuming then Murray isn’t just playing some sort of strategy, he certain makes it sound like he’ll be back as a ghost.

Thanks to Tyler, Steven, et al for the emails

NY Daily News does a Ghostbusters where-are-they-now feature [UPDATE]

The NY Daily News has posted a full run-down of the major players in Ghostbusters, and where they are now. It’s not deep, but it’s informative. And a nice confirmation that they’re all still around.

Minus 5 points for not thinking to mention that they’re all doing voices in the video game (well, most of them.) Another minus 5 points for not including Rick Moranis. Thanks for helping perpetuate the myth that Rick sits at home, thumbing his nose at the world all day, dressed in a suit made of money.

[UPDATE] The Daily News has just posted a second where-are-they-now article, this time including Rick Moranis as well as Hook and Ladder 8. Thanks to whoiseyevan for the link.
