Bill Murray set to appear in Paul Feig's Ghostbusters

While it doesn't directly reference the previous films, Paul Feig's (Bridesmaids) new take on Ghostbusters (1984) is finding plenty of ways to nod to the work of Ivan Reitman, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and the rest. With Aykroyd having let slip about a cameo, news now arrives via The Hollywood Reporter that the notoriously hard to pin down Bill Murray will also be showing up in some capacity.

Rumours were sparked when Murray was seen walking to the set, but there was always the chance he was just visiting to see the likes of Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids), Melissa McCarthy (The Heat), Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon (Saturday Night Live) in action as the new team. But according to The Hollywood Reporter, he will make an appearance. We doubt it will be as the wise cracking Peter Venkman, but it will certainly be nice to see him tip the nod to Feig's crew. It is also surprising, since Murray has been the big hold-out on new Ghostbusters films – he famously joked about shredding a script for the third outing of the original cast and has been hesitant thanks to his misgivings over Ghostbusters II.

Now, of course, we want to know whether Ernie Hudson will also be popping up to complete the set of surviving main Ghostbuster cameos. Feig's film, which also has Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Michael Kenneth Williams (12 Years A Slave), Andy Garcia (Oceans Twelve), Cecily Strong (Saturday Night Live), Matt Walsh (Ted), Nate Corddry (The Ugly Truth) and Neil Casey (Saturday Night Live) in its cast, will arrive in UK cinemas on 22 July next year.
