We hate going back and forth on the Bill Murray “Ghostbusters 3″ debacle, but this sounds kind of official: Bill is BACK IN. This comes from Harold Ramis . . . who co-wrote the first two movies and plays Ghostbuster Egon Spengler. He says, quote, “It was kind of crazy. Just out of nowhere, I get a phone call from Bill at almost three in the morning and he simply said, ‘Yeah, OK, I’m in!’ That’s Bill Murray for you. Surprising and straight to the point. ”Bill also said a major factor in his decision to do the movie had been all the support he received from fans.” That means the three main Ghostbusters Murray, Ramis and Dan Aykroyd are on board. There’s no word yet on Ernie Hudson. Sigourney Weaver is set to return, and there’s even talk that Rick Moranis will come out of retirement to take part. He hasn’t acted since doing a voice in “Brother Bear 2″ in 2006.
