Bill Murray goes 'B.O.O.' in new animated film

By Stephen L. Betts. CREATED Oct 31, 2013

Bill Murray will be among the voice actors in "B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations," a DreamWorks Animation production. According to the Hollywood Reporter, other cast members include Jennifer Coolidge, Octavia Spencer, Seth Rogen, Melissa McCarthy, Rashida Jones and Matt Bomer.

In a press release, the film studio says  "B.O.O." is a “supernatural action comedy [that] follows two bumbling apparitions who find themselves in an extraordinary afterlife adventure when they join the Bureau of Otherworldly Operations (B.O.O.) -- the ghost world’s elite counter-haunting unit -- and ultimately must face off against the planet’s greatest haunter."

No stranger to the supernatural, the "Ghostbusters" stare will provide the voice of villainous ghost Addison Drake. Coolidge will play a bubbly transitions-relations officer, while Spencer will be the tough-as-nails senior B.O.O. officer, Captain Book. The movie is based on an idea by Tony Leondis, who will also direct. A release date has been set for June 5, 2015.
