Why Did Bill Murray Agree to ‘Ghostbusters’ Reboot Cameo?

Why Did Bill Murray Agree to ‘Ghostbusters’ Reboot Cameo?

The new Ghostbusters is dividing fans directly down the middle. Some are excited to see the franchise return, while others are horrified by the casting choices and director. What a lot of the hate boils down to is, longtime fanatics simply wanted to see the original cast return. Which became increasingly less viable once star Harold Ramis passed away and Bill Murray seemed adamant not to participate. It's unlikely that Bill Murray would have starred in a true sequel to the 1984 Ghostbusters. But he is showing up for a few scenes in the remake. So at least fans can appreciate that. But it almost didn't happen. Why did Bill Murray finally agree to sign on?

Bill Murray has already finished his cameo on Ghostbusters. The actor shot his scenes in Boston earlier this month. Paul Feig and his cast will continue shooting on location in Boston and New York throughout September. The remake will also feature a cameo from other original Ghostbuster Dan Aykroyd, who is playing a cab driver. There has been no mention of Ernie Hudson's participation, though he mouthed off in the press about the all-female Ghostbusters, calling it a really bad idea. He later apologized. What do you think? Are you more open to this reboot knowing that some of the original participants are involved? Or are you determined to hate it until opening day?

‘Rock the Kasbah’ Trailer #2 Sends Bill Murray to Afghanistan

‘Rock the Kasbah’ Trailer #2 Sends Bill Murray to Afghanistan

Following the first trailer released back in June, Open Road Films, via Yahoo! Movies, has debuted the second trailer for their upcoming road adventure Rock the Kasbah. Bill Murray stars as rock manager Richie Lanz, who finds the best voice he's ever heard in the most unexpected of places: Afghanistan. This dramatic comedy is inspired by stranger-than-fiction, real-life events and directed by Oscar winner Barry Levinson.

Richie Lanz (Bill Murray), dumped and stranded in war-torn Kabul by his last remaining client (Zooey Deschanel), discovers Salima Khan (Leem Lubany), a Pashtun teenager with a beautiful voice and the courageous dream of becoming the first woman to compete on national television in Afghanistan's version of American Idol. Richie partners with a savvy hooker (Kate Hudson), a pair of hard-partying war profiteers (Danny McBride and Scott Caan) and a hair-trigger mercenary (Bruce Willis) and, braving dangerous cultural prejudices, manages his new protégée into becoming the "Afghan Star." The supporting cast includes Yousuf Azami, Eugenia Kuzmina and Fahim Fazli.

Bill Murray ‘Ghostbusters’ Cameo Confirmed

Bill Murray ‘Ghostbusters’ Cameo Confirmed

For several years, while Sony was developing their Ghostbusters reboot, it was believed that original Ghostbusters star Bill Murray would not appear in the movie. It appears that all has changed, with The Hollywood Reporter confirming that Bill Murray has arrived in Boston to shoot a cameo in the reboot. No details about his appearance were given, and it isn't known if he will portray Peter Venkman or a completely different character.

Last month, we reported that another original Ghostbusters star, Dan Aykroyd, will cameo as a New York City taxi driver, who picks up Kristen Wiig's character, Erin Gilbert. The scene reportedly features Dan Aykroyd saying the classic line "I ain't afraid of no ghost," with Gilbert replying, "That's a double negative! That means you are afraid of ghosts!" Since Dan Aykroyd isn't playing Ray Stantz, it seems unlikely that Bill Murray will portray Peter Venkman.
