Why Did Bill Murray Really Say Yes To The New Ghostbusters Movie? — ‘The Why’

Welcome to the newest edition of The Why.Why did Bill Murray really say yes to the new Ghostbusters movie?” Good question. (OK, it’s a little “current events” but again it beats answering those questions about some of your more particular personal peccadilloes. We thought “The Zombie Mask” was just something that the antagonist in the Ghostbusters remake wears, mmmkay?)

Speaking of Ghostbusters, actor Bill Murray has changed his mind. He has agreed to a cameo in the upcoming, girl-powered reboot of Ghostbusters, directed by Paul Feig. Murray, of course, starred as Dr. Peter Venkman in the 1984 Ghostbusters and again in the 1989 sequel Ghostbusters II.

Murray was originally so deadset against coming back as Venkman for Ghostbusters 3 that the series was shelved until Feig arrived on the scene to do a reboot. So why did Bill Murray agree to a cameo in this upcoming remake?

It has to have something to do with a woman.  No one changes direction like this unless there’s a woman involved or someone has been real nice to him.  Don’t believe that?

Our guest speaker for today, Jamie Sharpe contributor to Vulture has more information on why Murray had a change of heart towards the iconic franchise. He caught him outside of a premiere and questioned the popular actor.

Murray said: “You know, they were incredibly nice . . .” (See?  Someone was nice to him and women were involved!  After all, Jamie, he seemed deadest against anything Ghostbusters-related for a long time.)

Sharpe confirms that “he (Murray) maintained for a long time that he wasn’t interested in donning that proton pack again.”

Murray confessed: “That’s true, I wasn’t. “ However, Murray admitted that the casting of actresses like Kristin Wiig and Melissa McCarthy — who he called “a great hope” — swayed him. “I like those girls a lot. I really do. They are tough to say no to. And Paul is a real nice fellow.”

Murray concluded his change of heart was not easy. “I thought about it for a very long time. “Like, many, many months. No, that’s not right. I was seriously thinking about this for years, really . . . It kept eating at me, and I really respect those girls. And then I started to feel like if I didn’t do this movie, maybe somebody would write a bad review or something, thinking there was some sort of disapproval [on my part].”

Why did Bill Murray really say yes to the new Ghostbusters movie? Now you know.
