You have to give it to Bill Murray – the man knows how to live. He randomly shows up to parties in New York, bartends randomly at South by Southwest, and now apparently is hinting at the fact that there may be a Ghostbusters sequel.
Ghostbusters was one of the most beloved and cherished comedy franchises around the world – right behind the Meet the Parents series. Seriously, those Fokkers are popular in Germany. Don’t ask me why or how, it’s the same country that brings us myriad cinematic experiences of people running and pooping on each other. But it spawned one of the most popular cartoons of the 80’s, countless toys and baubles for you to blow money on, more cartoons in the 90’s and oughties and on and on and on. Now there’s rumored to be a sequel in the works – because if there’s one thing Hollywood needs, it’s more sequels.
But the world is crying out for a Ghostbusters resolution. What happened to Egon, Stantz, Venkman, and the other dude? To tease the audience, Murray appeared at the Spike TV scream awards dressed as Venkman, perhaps indicating that a sequel to the original was moving forward and would get the blogosphere’s teeth collectively chattering.
Well listen to us. We’re chattering away.
