Bill Murray teases with news that Ghostbusters 3 ain't dead yet

It seems like we've been waiting decades for a new Ghostbusters (because we have), and the prospects of a potential ending to the trilogy seemed pretty slim for a while there. But, according to longtime holdout Bill Murray, the project does still have a pulse—he's just waiting for one thing.

Murray popped up on the Late Show With David Letterman, and of course the prospect of the long-in-development Ghostbusters sequel came up. According to Murray, it's not that he's given up on the idea of a sequel, he's just been waiting for a script that will live up to the legacy of the first film.

"It's hard to make a sequel, it's got to be really funny and that first one was so darn funny, it's hard for me. I think we'll try again. I always drag my feet on it, but I think..."

And that's all we got, before Letterman interrupts to crack a joke. Curse you, Letterman!

But seriously, it's great that Murray is taking it upon himself to protect us from a potentially crappy sequel—we just wish someone would hurry up and crank out a script that is actually up to snuff.

If that ever happens, it's good to know that he does want to come back and bring Peter Venkman back for one last round.
