New Ghost Busters 3 in the works? True or False?

Your boy O-dogg thinks it will happen. I heard Dan Aykroyd say he was working on it on the Larry King Show on CNN. Despire Murray's negativity, there's too much $$$ on the table now that the 2009 videogame version of Ghostbusters has resurrected the franchise.

Bill Murray seemingly has no intention of starring in 'Ghost Busters 3'

It's no secret "Ghost Busters" stars Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis have wanted to make a third installment of their 80s blockbuster for years, but it has always been co-star Bill Murray who's said "no." There were recent rumblings that Murray, who has spent most of the past decade in the independent film world, would finally consent to "Ghost Busters 3." That appears not to be the case.

Speaking to Moviefone while promoting his new dramedy "Get Low," Murray dismissed such reports saying, ""No, it's ridiculous. That's an absolutely -- that's just a horrible rumor. It's like illegitimate children in Antarctica, it's ridiculous.... Mind you, we only made two, and the first one was still the better one, so another one wouldn't seem to be any better. The studio wants to make it because they can re-create the franchise and put new Ghostbusters in it. That's what it's about."
Could Murray be negotiating with Sony Pictures in public for a bigger paycheck or is he really dead set against it? Stay tuned...
