Sigourney Weaver: 'Ghostbusters 3' Won't Happen Without Bill Murray

September 19th, 2011 9:53pm EDT
Sigourney Weaver
The future of the third Ghostbusters movie hangs in the balance again - Sigourney Weaver insists the sequel won't start shooting if Bill Murray doesn't agree to be part of it.

The actress' comments come just a month after co-star Dan Aykroyd insisted filming would begin next year with or without Murray - the only castmember from the original movie who has yet to sign up for a third film.

Weaver previously suggested writers should kill off Murray's character, Peter Venkman, if he didn't want to be part of the sequel, but now it seems she has changed her mind.

In an interview with Collider...

Dan Aykroyd
The long-awaited third Ghostbusters movie is set to start shooting early next year, possibly without Bill Murray.

The Lost in Translation star remains the last original castmember to sign on for the sequel and now former co-star Dan Aykroyd has revealed the project could be moving forward without him.

Appearing on radio host Dennis Miller's show recently, the Blues Brothers star said, "We will be doing the movie and hopefully with Mr. Murray. That is our hope. (But) the concept is much larger than each individual role."

The actor also confirmed reports suggesting the new film will set up...

Radical Retro Movie Review: ‘Stripes’ Celebrates 30 Years Of Laughs

June 26th, 2011 10:00am EDT
Stripes Turns 30
Try to imagine your worst day in recent memory. Really picture it. Get that horrific experience fresh in your mind. Does it compare to losing your job, your car, your significant other, and your pizza all in the same day? Chances are, probably not.

All these calamities pile up for John Winger (Bill Murray) in director Ivan Reitman’s comedy “Stripes,” which turns 30 years old today. Out of everything, what stings the most for John, are his girlfriend’s words when she dumps him, “You’re going nowhere John, and it’s just not that cute anymore…” John attempts to use humor to save face ...

A sensual and mysterious Megan Fox – with wings.

Bill Murray Holding Up 'Ghostbusters 3'

January 10th, 2011 9:33pm EST
Ghostbusters
Director Ivan Reitman is waiting on Bill Murray's approval to begin work on the new Ghostbusters sequel, because he has to win over the Hollywood actor before they can even think about filming.

The filmmaker is ready to step behind the camera once more to shoot the third installment of the spooky story, 21 years after directing the last film in the franchise in 1989.

All four of the original 1984 Ghostbusters - Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson - have signed on to reprise their characters in the forthcoming project - but Reitman has urged fans not to believe everything th...

Obsession can come in many forms; one can become fixated with an individual, an object or a feeling. At Starpulse, we are obsessed with Glee, Brangelina, Suri Cruise, anything Martin Scorsese and of course The Beiber. In honor of Black Swan's opening weekend, a movie that centers on an obsession, here are a few other movies about being obsessed. Some are creepy, some are fascinating and some are just sick.

31 Days Of Horror: "Little Shop of Horrors" Double Feature

October 13th, 2010 3:24pm EDT
The Little Shop of Horrors (1960)
Continuing on with a similar theme from Monday is a Little Shop of Horrors double bill, first with the 1960 low-budget original, directed by a hesitant Roger Corman, followed by the 1986 film adaptation of the Alan Menken and Howard Ashman penned Off-Broadway musical. Both are funny, neither is particularly horrific, and while one has a very young Jack Nicholson, the other has Bill Murray—so it’s a bit of a toss-up as to which is the better killer plant movie.

By the late 50s Roger Corman had already hit his monster movie stride, churning out an unbelievable number of B-movies for paltry s...

Happy 60th Birthday, Bill Murray!

Bill Murray
Raise your glasses to Hollywood funnyman Bill Murray - the star turns 60 on Tuesday.

Born in Illinois in 1950, Murray started out at comedy troupe Second City Chicago after dropping out of college - and became infamous for his dry humor and improvisational skills.

In 1974, he moved to New York City and landed a role on hit comedy sketch series "Saturday Night Live," where he shared the small screen with John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd.

Murray made the transition to film in the 1980s, and a string of box office hits such as "Caddyshack" and "Groundhog Day" sealed his place in the spotlight.

Megan Fox
Megan Fox was a vision looking absolutely gorgeous in a white gown at the Toronto Film Festival premiere of her new movie, "Passion Play." In the film, Megan plays Lily, a carnival attraction called "Bird Woman" - because she has wings.

Think that's weird? It gets better: Lily falls in love with a trumpet player (Mickey Rourke) who is about to be executed by a gangster in the desert but is saved by ninjas.

Yes, you read that correctly, ninjas.

So basically, we have a film about an angel, some ninjas & gangsters, and a musician.

Trailer Talk: This Week in Movies - 'Dinner for Schmucks,' 'Charlie St. Cloud,' & More

Dinner for Schmucks
The action thriller “Salt” turned out to be more complex than I initially thought. Promotional material made the film seem like it would be a run-of-the-mill rogue spy on the run story. Without spoiling the details, there is additional intrigue surrounding CIA agent Evelyn Salt (Angelina Jolie), and the accusation that she’s a Russian mole. Thankfully the filmmakers don’t reveal her motivations too early on, keeping them close to the chest until the final act.

Jolie convincingly plays a strong female heroine, however as an actress I don’t feel like she adds much flavor to the role itsel...

Bill Murray Enjoyed 'Messing' With Robert Duvall On Movie Set

July 24th, 2010 9:00pm EDT
Bill Murray
Robert Duvall had the cast and crew on new movie Get Low cowering in fear whenever they were around him - because The Godfather icon was an intimidating "time bomb", according to co-star Bill Murray.

The actor admits he was struck by Duvall's presence on the film set - but he refused to walk on egg shells around the star like the rest of the crew and tried to engage him in some playful banter.

He explains, "(There was) tension around the set. This guy is a time bomb and the ticking is audible. And so I just remember being on the set and the first day - this guy's very serious... people a...

Bill Murray was left bleeding from a nasty head wound after injuring himself during a 'dumpster dive' stunt for a TV show on Wednesday.

The Ghostbusters funnyman leaped into a makeshift dumpster swimming pool filled with garbage as part of a skit for the Late Show with David Letterman to mock official plans for trash-bin swimming holes in New York City.

However, Murray's funny moment went awry when he banged his head in the jump and staggered back on to the show's set covered in blood. The actor bravely continued his interview with the host, and producers were able to patch up his injur...

Bill Murray Regrets 'Garfield'

Bill Murray
Funnyman Bill Murray regrets lending his voice to animated film Garfield to work with his idol, comedy writer Joel Coen - because he realized too late the part was written by a different Joel Cohen.

The actor admits he jumped at the chance to play the fat cat in the 2004 live-action film, loosely based on the Jim Davis comic strip Garfield - when he thought one half of the Oscar-winning Coen brothers filmmaking duo was attached to the script. However, he didn't realize until it was too late that another writer with a similar name had actually worked on the screenplay - and it wasn't funny...

June 6th, 2010 7:20am EDT
Caddyshack
The smash success "Caddyshack" became a prototype for countless other wacky T&A-tinged teen comedies of the early 1980s.

At an exclusive country club for WASPish snobs, an ambitious young caddy (Michael O'Keefe) from an overpopulated home eagerly pursues a caddy scholarship in hopes of attending college and, in turn, avoiding a job at the lumber yard. In order to succeed, he must first win the favor of the elitist Judge Smails (Ted Knight), then the caddy golf tournament which the good judge sponsors.

Of course, there are love interests as well - one good, one naughty - not to mention s...

Bill Murray Wants A Funeral While He's Alive

Bill Murray's new film Get Low has given the actor a novel idea - have his funeral while he's still alive.

Co-star Robert Duvall's character does just that in the film, and that has got Murray thinking.

He explains, "I like the idea of having your funeral before you're gone. You can hear all these memoriums about yourself... It would be sort of a baby comedy roast. You can get it over with and then you'd have a party.

"Suffering is the difference between reality and what you think reality is, so that could get your suffering done before your final hour."

Bill Murray has confused film fans by insisting there are no plans to make a Ghostbusters sequel - calling reports of a follow-up "hogwash".

All four of the original Ghostbusters - Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson - are said to have signed up to star in a third film, 21 years after the second installment hit cinemas in 1989. Original director Ivan Reitman also revealed he is onboard, with plans to start shooting the picture in 2010, and Murray was recently quoted talking about the plot.

On stage at a Q&A following the film, Murray mugged and joked with the thousands of people who saw "Get Low" for the first time.

“It’s really a pleasure to come out with this film, because Austin’s not a safe town for people like us,” Murray said. “When we come out with a film like this, we’ve got two or three hours where we’re safe a...

Bill Murray Proud Of His
Bill Murray never feels offended when he is labeled "difficult" to work with - because he sees it as a "badge of honor." The Hollywood actor famously fell out with director McG while they were making 2000 action film Charlie's Angels, but denied the moviemaker's claims he head-butted him when a disagreement turned violent.

He was also rumored to have clashed with actress Lucy Liu - one of his Charlie's Angels co-stars.

Murray admits he's "nothing but trouble" on film sets, especially when he doesn't agree with the decisions being made - but he doesn't see his refusal to compromise a...

Along the way, Mr. Fox falls back on his mischievous ways but stays dedicated to his family in the end.

Now that it looks as if the interminable "Saw" franchise has run out of gas after its sixth chapter, we can turn our attention to sequels that we'd really like to see, and what the odds are of them actually being produced.

ANCHORMAN 2: This is the biggie that most comedy fans would love to see. Star Will Ferrell and director Adam McKay have danced around the sequel for years, tantalizing fans with potential story ideas, fake titles and other tidbits, but nothing seems to be concrete. Still, the phenomenal popularity of the first film would make it a slam dunk, box-office smash. And, as ...

Narration by the lead character Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) provides a great deal of humor, especially as he expounds upon his rules of survival in the zombie infested world. These rules make frequent appearance on screen during relevant moments, adding additional laughs.
