The Moonrise Kingdom star, who reportedly turned down an offer to star in the sequel after reading the script, told The Late Show's David Letterman that reporters at the Cannes Film Festival were constantly asking him about the project.

"You've just got to have a really good script. It's hard," he said. "Even the second Ghostbusters wasn't as funny for me as the first one. It's hard to make a sequel.

It will air on Comedy Central Extra during the week from 23 July at 10.30pm [repeated on Comedy Central Extra's plus one (+1) timeshift channel 'Comedy Central Extra +1'] - just a day after its US broadcast.
