You know when the Afterlife sequel was announced, I thought okay Awesome. This is the natural course. I thought Aftetlife was an incredible send off to the OG characters. Definitely everything I could have hoped and much more from a legacy sequel.
I can understand how some of the fans here may have felt the OGs involvement was shoe horned. I get that. I enjoyed their involvement very much though. They were the sweetest tasting member berries I ever had. Wonderful send off for Egon.
I figured Firehouse was something I was going to enjoy, but not nearly as much as Afterlife since I am sure the idea is to move away from the legacy characters in order for the franchise to expand further. Again natural course. I knew that Dan and Ernie would be involved in Firehouse and if all goes well future projects. I figure beyond a shadow of a doubt that Bill would be done with the franchise. His presence in Afterlife is nothing short of a miracle and he was very generous with his time. However I got to thinking, would Bill Murray be willing to be in this new movie to honor Ivan Reitman’s memory much the same way they honored Harold’s. If he shows up I am not really expecting him to suit up again, but it would totally blow my mind if he did.
LOL! I never thought I would be having this kind of conversation post Afterlife, but it is fun to think and talk about. I am not expecting Bill Murray to be in it or suit up, but if he is and he does indeed suit up just one last time, I think his screen time will be as big as Afterlife or maybe less. Many here would probably role their eyes at this and understandably so. If he shows up it would probably be for the climax again.
That is just a thought, but the most realistic outcome is that Bill is done. Unless Jason and Gil write another script that is so good he just can’t refuse. Either way very glad that the iron is hot and that another movie is coming. I guess almost anything can happen at this point.
