Sigourney Weaver: No 'Ghostbusters 3' Without Bill Murray

| by Michael Allen

Actress Sigourney Weaver insists that 'Ghostbusters 3' will not start filiming if Bill Murray doesn’t agree to be part of it.  In an interview with Collider.com, she said: “I don’t think any of us would do it if Bill said 'no.' Why would we do that? I think the whole point is to get together and have fun.”

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

Her comments come just a month after co-star Dan Aykroyd insisted filming would begin next year with or without Murray.

On 'The Dennis Miller Show,' Aykroyd said: "Yes, we will be doing the movie and hopefully with Mr. Murray. That is our hope. We have an excellent script. What we have to remember is that 'Ghostbusters' is bigger than any one component, although Billy was absolutely the lead and contributive to it in a massive way, as was the director and Harold (Ramis), myself and Sigourney (Weaver). The concept is much larger than any individual role and the promise of 'Ghostbusters 3' is that we get to hand the equipment and the franchise down to new blood."
