Who you gonna call? Not Bill Murray.

 Over the past few years, there have been many, many, many rumours about Ghostbusters 3. It’s generally been assumed that the movie will be made (successful franchises never truly die, after all), but the main question mark has been whether or not Bill Murray would take part. First he was out. Then in. Then out. Maybe in. Out. In. Out. It was all pretty excessive, and for a movie that no one really wants to see thaaaaat much it was pretty tedious.

Now (hopefully) things are moving from the rumour stage to the fact stage, as Dan Ackroyd (who of course starred in the first two Ghostbusters films and co-wrote them as well) has officially acknowledged that the third film is moving on without Murray.

“No, I can tell you he won’t be involved. It’s sad but we’re passing it on to a new generation. Ghostbusters 3  can be a successful movie without Bill. My preference would be to have him involved but at this point he doesn’t seem to be coming and we have to move on. It’s time to make the third one,” Ackroyd said, according to Movie Web.

No news yet on when the movie will be released. Or when production will start. Or who will star as the new generation of Ghostbusters. Or even if Ivan Reitman will return to direct again. Basically, we don’t know much,  so we’ll have to keep you posted.

Until then, let’s all listen to the Ghostbusters theme song.
