Bill Murray will appear in ‘Ghostbusters’
After tons of rumors, Bill Murray, who played Dr. Peter Venkman in Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II, will appear in director Paul Feig’s upcoming installment of the franchise, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. Murray has long been resistant to star in a third Ghostbusters. He told David Letterman earlier this year that his hesitancy stems from Ghostbusters II not having been as well-received as the first one. Dan Akroyd, also from the original cast, has already confirmed his appearance in the movie on Twitter.
Feig’s film, which is currently shooting, stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, Chris Hemsworth and many more. It hits theaters on July 15, 2016.
