Bill Murray Is Officially on Board for Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Praises Script

The 69-year-old actor who starred in the first two movies confirms with Vanity Fair that he is making a return for the third flick, Ghostbusters: Afterlife. "The script is good", he explained.

Set 36 years after the original movie, Jason Reitman (son of original writer and director Ivan Reitman) is penning and directing the movie. When Ramis passed away in 2014, the then-untitled movie's early script had to be reworked to account for his absence as OG Ghostbuster Egon Spengler. Previously, Dan Aykroyd and Sigourney Weaver had both suggested Murray would be returning along with fellow franchise star Ernie Hudson, but Murray himself had yet to speak about his potential casting. "I'm really honoured to get a chance to tell one back to him from the world he brought to life", he shared during an interview with an entertainment magazine.

The comic tale has actually verified to Vanity Fair that he'll be playing Peter Venkman in the brand-new movie, in spite of being non-commital in the past.

Biehlmaier said the initial information suggested the suspect, a German citizen, and one or more of the victims, knew each other. Rot am See is located some 135 km (84 miles) southeast of Frankfurt, close to the medieval town of Rothenburg ob der Tauber.
