Bill Murray to appear in 'Ghostbusters'

Story highlights

  • Bill Murray to appear in the new "Ghostbusters"
  • Dan Aykroyd also expected to cameo

(The Hollywood Reporter)Bill Murray ain't afraid of no reboot.

The actor, who played Dr. Peter Venkman in "Ghostbusters" (1984) and "Ghostbusters II" (1989), will appear in director Paul Feig's upcoming installment in the franchise, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
    Murray has long been resistant to star in a third Ghostbusters movie. He told David Letterman earlier this year that his hesitancy stems from "Ghostbusters II" not having been as well-received as the first one.
    Feig's film, which is currently shooting, stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones and Chris Hemsworth. It hits theaters on July 22, 2016.
