Bill Murray Will Have Cameo Role In New Ghostbusters

The all female Ghostbusters starring Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon and directed by Paul Feig has been the subject of a lot of discussion. Especially since the original script was passed on by one of the original Ghostbusters Bill Murray. However, Murray was at least interested in the current edition of the movie enough to make a cameo appearance. He said the following in an interview with Rolling Stones

“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 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].”

The new Ghostbusters movie is set to be released July of 2016
