Den of geek.com posted recently about the current status of "Ghostbusters 3." (Or, to be more specific, they're commenting on a new Deadline.com link about the matter.) As previously reported, the x-factor continues to be Bill Murray's involvement (or lack thereof).

The latest update comes in a story over at Deadline, in a piece discussing the next project of writers Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg. The pair had penned Bad Teacher, a surprise hit this year, and also worked on the script for Ghostbusters 3. The report notes that a new Ghostbusters film could be ready to start shooting in the spring of 2012, but it reiterates the belief that “the studio isn’t going to make it without Bill Murray”.

The latest on Murray, according to the story, is that “as recently as last month, he had not read the script, or if he did, he has not reached out to get the dealmaking started”.

The feeling continues to be, therefore, that Sony wants Murray on board before it will give Ghostbusters 3 a green light. And, given that this has all been going on for over a year, there’s little sign that he’s going to sign up for the film.

Hopefully, I'll post on the overall reaction to the presently leaked GB III plot details in the next few days. (If one is familiar with TV Tropes.org, "Internet Backdraft" comes to mind.) From what I read, it isn't a pretty sight, especially in regards to Ray.

I already spoke my piece in an entry, last spring, so I'll re-link and avoid repeating myself:

I hope to have another entry posted by tonight. If not, have a good night.
