You gotta love how candid, blunt and shrug-like Bill Murray is about… well everything. Dude has no manager, no agent. You either know whether to find him or you don’t. You send scripts to a P.O. Box, if you ever hear back, count yourself very lucky and or actually talented (some who know the backstory to “Lost In Translation” are still shocked that he agreed to do that film). He was in Toronto during TIFF to do press for the upcoming Aaron Schneider film, “Get Low” and he didn’t show up. Why? He didn’t feel like it and everyone involved and Schneider himself all just shrugged as it was par for the course with Bill.
I heard you weren’t happy with plans for Ghostbusters 3.
I haven’t seen the script, so it’s not a matter of being happy or not. Do you want to do the movie?
I don’t know. It’s all about the script. If the script’s not good, I’m not going to get excited. They’ve been talking about it for a long time. So, you know, I don’t get all excited about it, you know. Dan Aykroyd told me it’s going to be two guys and two girls.
That sounds like a weekend, but I don’t know if it’s a movie. What age do you think the new Ghostbusters should be?
Oh, I don’t know. I don’t know what they’re talking about. It’s just talk. No one’s sent me a script. I haven’t seen anything. [Dan Aykroyd] is more out there. He’s a much more active guy than I am. I’m sluggish. You don’t want to do it?
I mean, I like those guys. But it’s all about if the stuff is good. The stuff’s got to be great.
It’s sort of him just saying, “yeah, sure, whatever…” [via Vulture]
