Bill Murray on All-Female ‘Ghostbusters III’

With his St. Vincent premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival over the weekend (out in theaters October 10), Bill Murray took a break from being the coolest man in comedy to offer up his casting suggestions for Paul Feig’s rumored all-girls Ghostbusters III:

It sounds great to me. It sounds as good an idea as any other! There are a lot of women that could scare off any kind of vapor! No, it’s a grand idea, I don’t know who they’re talking about, but it’s a good idea, I would watch it! I mean, I love Robert Palmer’s videos, so why wouldn’t I love the female Ghostbusters?

Melissa [McCarthy] would be a spectacular Ghostbuster. And Kristen Wiig is so funny. God, she’s funny. I like this girl Linda Cardellini a lot. And Emma Stone is funny. There are some funny girls out there.

While it wouldn’t take much to convince me to go see a female Ghostbusters, the fact that Bill Murray is on board with it makes it even better (fingers crossed for a cameo appearance).

Celebrate the 30 year anniversary of Ghostbusters with some classic Murray moments:

CADDYSHACK (1980)

STRIPES (1981)

GHOSTBUSTERS (1984)

RUSHMORE (1998)

COFFEE & CIGARETTES (2003)

LOST IN TRANSLATION (2003)

THE LIFE AQUATIC WITH STEVE ZISSOU (2004)

ST. VINCENT (2014)

The trailer for St. Vincent features the always-lovable Murray as a South Brooklyn schlemiel tasked with watching the child of his neighbor, played by Melissa McCarthy, and an almost unrecognizable Naomi Watts as a stripper. His St. Vincent role came about, said Murray at TIFF’s Bill Murray Day, “because they couldn’t get Jack Nicholson.”
