Rick Moranis is willing to return for Ghostbusters 3

Rick Moranis retired from acting back in 1997 after the untimely loss of his wife to cancer. Moranis has since been a single parent and enjoyed doing voicework for some animated films but mainly staying out of the limelight. In a very rare interview with Empire, Moranis was asked about the still in development GHOSTBUSTERS 3. The man who played the bumbling accountant/lawyer friend to the Ghostbusters, Louis Tully, gave a very surprising answer to whether he would come back for the second sequel.

"I haven't talked to Danny (Aykroyd) about it," he says. "Somebody he's associated with called me and I said, 'I wouldn't not do it, but it's got to be good.' You know, I'm not interested in doing anything I've already done, and I thought the second one was a disappointment."

"But I guess I'm interested in where that guy is now. I sort of see him as being Bernie Madoff's cellmate in jail. Both of them being so orderly that they race to get up and make their beds."

If Bill Murray truly won't be in GHOSTBUSTERS 3, it is vital to bring back as many of the original cast as possible to make it feel like a true sequel instead of a makeshift way to reboot the franchise.  That means I want Annie Potts, Harold Ramis, Ernie Hudson, and even William Atherton!  Bring them all back and forget about Murray.  Well, okay, don't forget about Murray, but you know what I mean.  If Dan Akyroyd is intent on GHOSTBUSTERS 3 happening, I want it to be the best damn GHOSTBUSTERS movie possible.

Just last month, Akyroyd told Larry King that the newest script for GHOSTBUSTERS 3 was chugging along, but that is the same thing we have been hearing for years.  Hopefully this time it is true and I can pull my old toy proton pack out of mothballs and enjoy some great horror-comedy action!

Extra Tidbit: I say get Simon Pegg and Nick Frost involved somehow. That would be awesome.
