Bill Murray Overcomes Fear Of Ghosts, Will Appear In New “Ghostbusters”

Bill Murray, scared off the Ghostbusters train after his disappointment with 1989’s Ghostbusters 2, will appear in Paul Feig’s 2016 franchise reboot starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones and Chris Hemsworth.

Murray, by far the actor most closely associated with the Ghostbusters canon, has, sources say, “snuck” into Boston and is filming a scene for the new film. His appearance not only gives the Feig film an imprimatur of Ghostbuster authenticity, but teams him with fellow Saturday Night Live vets past and present, including Wiig, McKinnon and Jones.

Murray previously seemed to vaporize rumors that he’d appear in the female-fronted Ghostbusters, dismissing the chat as “crazy talk.”

The upcoming Ghostbusters hits theaters July 22, 2016.
