Bill Murray Talks His Cameo In Ghostbusters Reboot

SHARE:


If you're a fan of Ghostbusters, you’ll be well aware of the decades long battle to get a new movie off the ground, and how this was directly tied into Bill Murray’s reluctance to strap on the proton pack one more time. Long before Paul Feig was given the go ahead for his female centric reboot, Dan Ackroyd and Ivan Reitman were developing a new take on Ghostbusters that would see a new team emerge with the original team onboard as their mentors. Even though he has famously said he would only come back as a ghost, Murray never really seemed open to the idea, at one point revealing while he had the script he never actually read it. So, the project moved on without the actor’s involvement, and it eventually morphed into the movie we’ll see next year, with Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones as our new team of ghost busting heroes. But something strange happened a few weeks back: Bill Murray was revealed to have a cameo in the new movie. So what happened to change his mind?


Speaking to Vulture, Murray revealed that the addition of McCarthy and Wiig had a lot to do with his decision, calling them “a great hope”. But it wasn’t a choice that came easily, with the actor saying, “I thought about it for a very long time. Like, many, many months. No, that’s not right. I was seriously thinking about this for years, really … It kept eating at me, and I really respect those girls. And then I started to feel like if I didn’t do this movie, maybe somebody would write a bad review or something, thinking there was some sort of disapproval [on my part].” While Murray isnt exactly needed for this reboot, his involvement does indeed generate a bit of goodwill towards the project that has had a tough time of it since its announcement. Speaking of his time on set, he seemed to have a blast,You know, they were incredibly nice to ask me, and I really enjoyed being there. They have such a jolly group, and they are going to have great success with this project. I didn’t want to overshadow [them] or anything, and I feel really good about it. I like those girls a lot. I mean, I really do. They are tough to say no to. And Paul is a real nice fellow.”

While we dont know what his cameo entails, the popular rumour is that hes a supernatural debunker that tries to prove the Ghostbusters are fakes. But, personally, I dont care who hes playing, Im just glad hes finally back to the ghost busting fold.

Ghostbusters comes our way July 22nd 2016.
