In very depressing news for those of us feeling old, it’s now been 30 years since 1984’s Ghostbusters first graced the big screen.
In more exciting news, the director and some of the stars of that beloved comedy reunited for Entertainment Weekly’s latest Reunions issue that hits stands Friday. Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver, Annie Potts, and director Ivan Reitman all donned the iconic logo again. (Sadly missing: the late and greatly missed Harold Ramis whose Egon Spengler is still one of the coolest movie Ph.D.’s ever.)
Speaking with Ghostbusters superfan Al Roker (he’s seen the movie over 100 times!) on Today, star Bill Murray recalled a very Bill Murray anecdote about making trouble on set.
“We had that damn car, and in the uniform, with the car, even the cops thought we were above them somehow,” he remembered. “We would do a take where we’d have to drive the car, and after they yelled ‘Cut,’ we would just keep driving. We would just run around Chinatown, wherever we were, running red lights, going the wrong way on one-way streets, looking at people, saying, ‘Okay, alright, all clear here.’"
