ABC News: Dan Aykroyd says that Ghostbusters 3 [GHST3] has hired a new team of writers that are currently writing a new script   RazorHawk on Jul 02, 15:47

Aykroyd wrote the original. Not sure why he can't write this one himself either {nm}   mickpix on Jul 02, 16:06

I'm sure he tried... Best guess is that he wants to get Bill Murray on board, so he will hire whomever he can to get it made {nm}   dioneta on Jul 02, 16:08

he tried... it was rejected, so writers from 'The Office' were hired but Bill Murray did not like their script... {nm}   RazorHawk on Jul 02, 16:10

He's old and out of touch. Comedians are usually only funny for a decade or so. {nm}   Antibody on Jul 02, 16:11

none of the young, in touch ones have had any apparent success either. {nm}   mickpix on Jul 02, 16:19

Steve Martin is still funny as heck. {nm}   elchan on Jul 02, 16:43

when was the last time he starred in a hit comedy? {nm}   RazorHawk on Jul 02, 16:50

2009 {nm}   BionicMoron, EAP leader on Jul 02, 16:57

Also the first Pink Panther he did was pretty good too. His comedy is timeless. {nm}   elchan on Jul 02, 17:40

Personally I've never found him funny, but there's no argueing he's been popular for a very long time. {nm}   BionicMoron, EAP leader on Jul 02, 17:45

And Bill Murray. George Carlin was timeless. {nm}   GMov on Jul 02, 16:53

When was the last time they wrote original material. {nm}   Antibody on Jul 02, 16:56

Yeah, Carlin's been on a real dry spell lately, what's up with that? {nm}   stevie1der328 on Jul 02, 17:11

After a while, they just don't have the drive to write anymore. And nothing or nobody can change that. {nm}   DTXbro on Jul 02, 20:03

George wrote a new act about once a year, for 45 years. He deserves a rest. {nm}   not2fast on Jul 02, 17:15

George Carlin's got an excuse, not sure about Bill Murray {nm}   JDolphin on Jul 02, 21:01

I don't see too many writing credits on Bill Murray's bio on IMDB. Doesn't seem like that's his thing. {nm}   elchan on Jul 02, 21:31
