Back in December, a report surfaced that actor Bill Murray was so displeased with Dan Aykroyd's script for Ghostbusters 3, that the actor sent the shredded contents back to Dan Aykroyd in a box with the note, "No one wants to pay money to see fat, old men chasing ghosts!"

Dan Aykroyd recently shot down the script-shredding rumor, but it seems they may have to move along without Bill Murray. Here's what Dan Aykroyd had to say below.

"Bill Murray is not capable of such behavior. This is simply something that would not be in his nature. We have a deep, private personal relationship that transcends business. We communicate frequently and his position on the involvement in Ghostbusters 3 has been made clear and I respect that. But Bill has too much positive estimation of my writing skills to shred the work."

Dan Aykroyd revealed that they may pull a Jack Ryan and cast another actor to portray Peter Venkman. Dan Aykroyd also said that they are trying to bring Rick Moranis back for Ghostbusters 3.

"If we can get the script to Ghostbusters 3 right, then it would definitely have Moranis as a major component. None of us would want to do the movie without having him as a participant.

The script must be perfect. We cannot release a film that is any less than that. We have more work to do."

Back in August, Dan Aykroyd said Ghostbusters 3 will start shooting in the Spring of 2012, with or without Bill Murray. However, it seems Dan Aykroyd is still polishing the script, so it could still be quite some time before the cameras ever start rolling on Ghostbusters 3.
