Story by Jack Foley

BILL Murray is to appear in the forthcoming Ghostbusters reboot.

The actor, who played Dr. Peter Venkman in the original Ghostbusters in 1984 and Ghostbusters II will appear in director Paul Feig’s all-female re-imagining.

It is not yet known whether the actor will be reprising his role or playing someone different – or even how long he will appear. But his involvement was confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter.

Ironically, Murray has been resistant to the idea of a third Ghostbusters for some time owing to how not so well-received the sequel had been. But he now looks to have been won over by Feig’s approach to the continuation of the franchise.

The new Ghostbusters, which is currently shooting, stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones and Chris Hemsworth.

It is currently scheduled to be released in US cinemas on July 22, 2016.
