Bill Murray will appear in Ghostbusters reboot

Posted on

Bill Murray has gotten the Ghostbusters call once again.

The actor will make an appearance in director Paul Feig’s upcoming reboot, a source close to the production confirmed to EW.

Murray played Dr. Peter Venkman in the original Ghostbusters (1984) and again in Ghostbusters II (1989), but has long been resistant to the prospect of starring in a third film. “It’s really hard to recreate something that was so beautiful, so wonderful,” he said last year.

Murray is the second original Ghostbusters cast member to score a cameo appearance in the new film. Last month, it was revealed that Dan Aykroyd shot a scene alongside Kristen Wiig.

Feig’s Ghostbusters, starring Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, Chris Hemsworth, Michael K. Williams, and Neil Casey, hits theaters on July 15, 2016.
