Bill Murray Will Say B.O.O.
Octavia Spencer and Jennifer Coolidge also aboard

Though it already boasts the tonsil talents of Seth Rogen and Melissa McCarthy, two people proven to be thoroughly funny, DreamWorks Animation isn’t stopping there with regards to B.O.O.: Bureau Of Otherworldly Operations. The company has announced via Twitter that Bill Murray, Octavia Spencer and Jennifer Coolidge are now among the cast.

Billed as a supernatural action comedy, the new film finds a pair of bumbling ghosts (Rogen and McCarthy) who join the Bureau and do their best to take down evil spirits. A real threat emerges when they must tackle the Most Wanted Haunter.

Murray is set to play a villainous spirit called Addison Drake, while Spencer is the no-nonsense Captain Book and Coolidge is ditzy transitions-relations officer Carol Sue. They join an ensemble that also includes Rashida Jones and Matt Bomer.

Tony Leonidis is directing from a script by Tom Wheeler. “Bill Murray is the perfect actor to bring this character to life – or should I say ‘after-life?” says Leondis in the official statement. “Along with Jennifer and Octavia, this is a dream cast. I can’t imagine a team more capable of packing a funnier punch to this broadly comedic ghost story.” We can but hope they all deliver.

B.O.O. is set to haunt our cinemas on July 17, 2015. The big question now – will Bill Murray have to bust himself? And will it make him feel good?
