To play a villainous ghost...
Bill Murray is heading into the lands of the dead, though not as a Ghostbuster. DreamWorks Animation has announced that Murray will voice the role of the villainous specter Addison Drake in their upcoming film B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldy Operations. Also announced today as joining the cast are Jennifer Coolidge and Octavia Spencer as transitions-relations officer Carol Sue and tough as nails Sr. B.O.O. officer Captain Book. respectively.
The trio join Seth Rogen, Melissa McCarthy, Rashida Jones and Matt Bomer in the film, which will be released through Twentieth Century Fox on June 5th, 2015. The film follows two bumbling apparitions who find themselves in an extraordinary after-life adventure when they join the Bureau of Otherworldly Operations (B.O.O.) – the ghost world's elite counter-haunting unit – and ultimately must face off against the planet's greatest haunter.
