Some sequels get rushed because they had production schedules and deadlines to meet. But Bill Murray isn't letting that get to him. He's the reason for the hold-up to the production of Ghostbusters 3, since he wouldn't commit to the project until a good-quality script came for the movie.

And come, it will. The franchise's co-creator Dan Aykroyd revealed that a new writing team had come on-board, and he couldn't be more pleased.

We've got a new writing staff working on it now. It's got to be perfect. That's the whole thing. There's no point in doing it unless it's perfect. So that's what we're up to now.

--  Dan Aykroyd

Murray had earlier chucked out the script penned by Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, who co-wrote Year One and Bad Teacher.

You just have to have a really good script, you know, it's hard. I think, you know, we'll try again.

-- Bill Murray on the Late Show with David Letterman

Ghostbusters 3 is still in development, but A-list stars Sigourney Weaver, Anna Faris, Eliza Dushku, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Annie Potts, and Ernie Hudson have already signed on to the movie.
