Bill Murray Hints He Could Appear in All-Female Ghostbusters Reboot

Original Ghostbusters star Bill Murray may have been the brain behind the all-female reboot set to premiere next summer. But will his Dr. Peter Venkman be making an appearance in the new film?

Dressed as his character from the upcoming Rock the Casbah at San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday, Murray left the door open to that possibility during an interview with MTV News.

“They got like a murderers’ row there,” Murray said of the cast, which includes Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones. When he first met director Paul Feig at the 40th anniversary of Saturday Night Live, he said the idea of him getting involved with the movie came up.

Murray shrugged and said the discussions “haven’t gone any further” — filming is currently underway — but he did not outright deny his involvement. “I think they’re going to have a great success with it,” he added.
