Though we may not see Bill Murray get back to busting ghosts in Ghostbusters 3, DreamWorks Animation has secured the actor to voice a ghoul in their forthcoming comedy B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations. The film stars follow Seth Rogen as a new ghost named Jackson Moss, who works as an agent at the titular top-secret government agency that protects humans from evil hauntings. When he and his partner Watts (Melissa McCarthy) uncover a plot to destroy B.O.O., they must use their skills to defeat the agency's Most Wanted Haunter and his powerful ghost army, and save the world. So what's Murray's role?
Well, Murray is playing a villainous ghost named Addison Drake, but we're not sure if that's the Most Wanted Haunter or not. Jennifer Coolidge and Octavia Spencer have also joined the voice cast as Carol Sue, a bubbly transitions-relations officer, and he tough as nails Senior B.O.O. officer, Captain Book, respectively. Rashida Jones and Matt Bomer were also previously announced to join the project as Rogen's ex-wife and her new husband, who turns out to be a perfect step-dad to Rogen's son. We're pretty excited about this one and hope it turns out well. Tony Leondis (Igor) came up with the idea is directing with a script from Tom Wheeler (Puss in Boots) 20th Century Fox releases the film on June 5th, 2015.
