Ghostbusters actor Bill Murray praises Ghostbusters: Afterlife.
According to the interview, Murray expressed that the upcoming Ghostbusters film has the feel of the original:
“He (Jason) has a really, really wonderful idea that he wrote with another wonderful guy that I got to work with, Gil Kenan, who made the City of Ember. The two of them wrote a Ghostbusters movie that really brings it back to life and really has the feel of the first one. More than the second one or the girl’s one. It has a different feel than two out of four, and I think he’s really got something.”
Murray also expressed the difficulty he faced in getting back into the franchise:
“It was hard. It was really hard. That’s why I think it’s going to be good, cause it was really hard! We were just in it for a little while, but it was physically painful. I mean, we did it a long time ago, but wearing those packs, is extremely uncomfortable, even though they made the packs, I mean we had batteries the size of batteries, you know, they now have like batteries the size of, you know, earrings, but it’s still a pretty heavy thing to wear all the time.”
“They got us all back together in a room, and really we hadn’t been together in a room since the movie came out, and it was just really, really fun to be together. We were really funny together. Like those are some really wonderful, really funny guys and girls; Sigourney, Annie Potts. Spectacular women and funny as hell. They got us all together, and they pitched some sort of a story idea that was really great, and I thought, “Holy cow, we could make that work!” It ended up not being the story that they wrote, but they got us to do the sequel under false pretenses. Harold had this great idea, but by the time we got to shooting it, I was someplace else, I don’t know. I showed up on set, and went ‘What the hell is this?’
And if you think Murray praising Afterlife means he’s going to diss the 2016 Ghostbusters film, you’re wrong:
“I did the one that the ladies did, and those are some of my favorite funny people, you know, those girls are so funny, and you talk about improvising; they did nothing but fire grenades all day long.”
