Bill Murray shared his experience focusing on the forthcoming Ghostbusters: Afterlife in a Q&A when he was awarded the Maltin Modern Master Award at the 36th Santa Barbara Film Festival. Collider highlighted the Q&A, where Murray looked on the   back;Ghostbusters legacy and exposed about being approached to become listed on the cast of Afterlife .
Murray shared the way the conversation between him and director Jason Reitman began, “I recall him calling me and saying, ‘I’ve got an basic idea for another ‘Ghostbusters. ’ I’ve had this basic idea for a long time.I thought, ‘What the heck could that possibly be?’ I recall him when he was a kid. I recall his Bar Mitzvah. I was like, ‘What the heck? What does this young kid know? ’ But he really had a, really wonderful proven fact that he wrote with another wonderful guy that I got eventually to use, Gil Kenan, who made ‘City of Ember.’ Each of them wrote a ‘Ghostbusters’ movie that basically brings it back again to life. It gets the feel of the initial one really, more than the next one or the girls’ one. It includes a different feel than two out of four.”

The film was originally slated to be released this past year and contains since reshuffled its opening to November 11. Murray discussed Reitman’s task to transport his father Ivan Reitman’s mantle while developing a story with new leads that brings the legacy characters back a way.
“I believe he’s really got something,” Murray continued, “It had been hard. It was hard really. That’s why I believe it’s gonna be good. We were inside it for a time just, nonetheless it was painful physically. Wearing those packs is uncomfortable extremely. We’d batteries how big is batteries. They will have batteries how big is earrings now. It’s an extremely heavy thing to wear still, all the right time. The special effects in that one are a large amount of dirt and wind in that person, and there is plenty of going and getting back up down. I was like, ‘What is this? What am I doing? They are like Bulgarian deadlifts, or perhaps a Russian kettlebell, getting and down with this particular thing on my back up.’ It had been very uncomfortable. Usually, when something includes a high misery quotient, something comes of this plus some quality is produced that, when you can capture it and project it, occurs the screen and affects you. I believe it happens in the fall sometime. For per year or perhaps a year . 5 they’ve delayed it, but I’m glad they did. It will be worth seeing.”
