Ghostbusters 3 may live or die with a decision made by Bill Murray, a star in the previous two films, as director Ivan Reitman mulls over whether or not to shoot it in 3-D.

The actors involved with the sequel, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis, have read the script and “loved it,” director Ivan Reitman told CNN.

However, Murray has not taken a look at it yet. If he doesn’t like it, Reitman has “a very complicated deal. Let's just put it that way,” according to the news agency.

Reitman noted that there was “all kinds of of chatter online” about Murray not liking the script and said those rumors are not true. “He has not read a thing. He's never read anything. And I just sent it to him. So we'll see. God knows how long that will take. But we'll see,” he told ComingSoon.net

On whether or not to shoot the film in 3-D, Reitman also has been mulling it over.

"Certainly it has come up because it seems like an obvious thing to do," Reitman told USA Today. “And certainly the studio is interested in that because there seems to be a real financial bump for the right movies being done in 3-D. It seems like a cool idea. What I have to really study is whether comedy works this way.”
