I believe Murray doesn't even have an agent. No agent, no PR people, etc. Apparently, he set up a phone number for people who want him in a movie to call and leave a message.

Reminds me of Stan Laurel.

That is correct. There's a bit in the Netflix documentary The Bill Murray Stories where the director calls it, leaves an embarrassing message a la Swingers, and keeps discarding it before finally leaving one.

Re: Ghostbusters 3 (2020 D: Jason Reitman)

I donít know if he still doesnít have any representation other than a lawyer who handles some of the types of requests that an agent or publicist would. I had read about a fax machine where people had to send pages.
The 800 number changed a few times and at one point changed back to what it was before. I donít know if he forgot to renew it or pay the bill or something or did it as a joke, but for a while his number was going to a sex line instead.
I was able to use the 800 number to get an interview with him in 2003. I called it, heard nothing for two weeks, called it again, and then he called me back a little while later. I was able to get in touch with him through that number a few times after as well. I got the impression that heíd listen to it every now and then when stuck at an airport or something like that.

I have tickets for the Ghostbusters event, but not sure if I want to attend without looking at what's on the program schedule.

In an article about Sigourney:
She’s also set to reunite with Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd in the new Ghostbusters, due July 2020. “It’s going to be crazy working with the guys again!” she says. She won’t reveal any details except to confirm she’s reprising her role as hauntee Dana Barrett.

I hope Ernie Hudson is included as well. In other Ghostbusters news, the Elmer Bernstein score soundtrack has been rereleased on CD, digital platforms and the vinyl will be available in July.

Re: Ghostbusters 3 (2020 D: Jason Reitman)

Accompanied by his father Ivan Reitman, filmmaker Jason Reitman revealed alternate takes, outtakes and other never-before-seen, lost Ghostbusters footage from the original production dailies. The original film footage was apparently sitting in a mine in Kansas, but they tracked it down and cut together some of the best bits to reveal at Ghostbusters Fan Fest. Plus, an off-the-cuff remark from Jason Reitman indicated that this unearthed new footage was serving another mysterious purpose.

“In making this movie, we found something kind of extraordinary. We went to Sony, and we said, ‘We’d really love to get back into the original dailies from 1984. Do you still have them?’ And we found them. They were in a mine in Kansas, and we shipped the boxes to Burbank. And we’ve been going through the footage for reasons I cannot tell you, but along the way we found some really cool stuff.”

Yeah, lots of film is stored in an underground mine on the Kansas side. Temperature is cool and constant. The largest mine is over by where I used to live on the Missouri side.

I would guess it was this mine, Stradica, where a lot of archives are stored.

From what I’ve read, the anniversary set is just in a steelbook, but has the same previous discs.

Re: Ghostbusters 3 (2020 D: Jason Reitman)

this is from the email I received so they may have been keeping it quite for the special talk...(amazon shows it released 6/11/19 for 4K at ~39 usd)

I think the Blu-rays of the movies are new (they include original soundtrack options) and the extras disc is only included with the set. The 4K copies are unchanged.

Re: Ghostbusters 3 (2020 D: Jason Reitman)

Glad I never bought either movie on 4K. Can now get rid of my old Ghostbusters Blu-rays (still keeping my DVD release with the MST3K style commentary).
