Exclusive: Rick Moranis On Ghostbusters 3
'I see Tully being Bernie Madoff's cellmate in jail'

Rick Moranis shot exclusively for Empire by Austin Hargrave

Like Lord Lucan, George Kaplan and The Scarlet Pimpernel, Rick Moranis is a very elusive human being, making interviews with the comedy hero as rare as ghosts' teeth. It's happy news, then, that Mr. Moranis welcomed Empire into his home for an extensive feature - which you can read in the latest issue - in which he touched on Ghostbusters 3

"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."

To not have Rick Moranis' Louis Tully - lawyer, accountant, reserve Ghostbuster, quintessential nerd - in the so-often mooted threequel would be as great a shame as it would be to lose Bill Murray's Peter Venkman. But with Aykroyd now talking about a Murray-less version of the script, perhaps he'd be willing to do without Mr. Moranis as well.

Of course, The Man Who Would Be Louis Tully (Again, Possibly) has been off our screens (more or less) for two decades now, filling his days with his kids, voiceover work and music. His latest album, My Mother's Brisket & Other Love Songs, is out now, and you can buy it here. The new issue of Empire - the one with the elves on the front - is out on Thursday, June 27.

My make Ghostbusters 3 anyway?
All the effort Mr. Akroyd has put into mooting Ghostbusters 3 over the last few years could have been spent creating a new idea. I'd rather see a new idea from the people who brought me Ghostbusters than see a movie that people have to be publicly strong-armed into making. I mean, the second one's a piece of shit anyway! These old 'beloved' franchises never really stand up. You liked them when you were a kid because you were stupid and young and the Dark Knight hadn't been made yet. Besides, Gho More

For all intents and purposes, 2009's Ghostbusters: The Video Game IS Ghostbusters 3. Personally, I'd rather they make a movie out of the cool 'Extreme Ghostbusters' cartoon from the late '90s... More

RE: Ah, Ghostbusters III ...
L: Cool Breeze Will they please just follow Bill Murrays example and realise that FAR too much time has passed and that they are all far too old to be chasing ghosts now? If there is to be a new Ghostbusters film thats fine, but just reboot it. eah, who'd want to watch a bunch of old blokes running around and shooting at stu... Oh, wait a minute... More

Wow, Moranis has aged well...
If that's a recent photo, the guy has aged very graciously. Less can be said for the likes of Murray and crew however. As for Ghostbusters 3. Yes the time has passed, they are all too old etcetera. But dammit, I'll still be there opening day. I say bring it on, I've had so much enjoyment from so many awful films, one more is not going to hurt. Hey, I even really enjoyed Man of Steel. More

It's been too long
They've waited to long to make this movie. Not its been so long what ever idea they come up with will be not good enough or it's been done before. Also will it be a proper part 3? Or will it be a part 3 where they pass on the torch to a new gen for a new ghostbusters franchise.? I'm sure my kid will love it but for us original fans I think the time has passed. More
