Bill Murray joins Dreamworks' animated film B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations

Bill Murray is returning to the world of ghosts and the supernatural, only it won't be as Dr. Peter Venkman. The beloved actor has joined the voice talent assembled for Dreamworks Animation's B.O.O: BUREAU OF OTHERWORLDLY OPERATIONS. Murray joins the extensive cast that already features Seth Rogen, Melissa McCarthy, Rashida Jones and Matt Bomer. Jennifer Coolidge and Octavia Spencer are also joining the roster of the film.

B.O.O: BUREAU OF OTHERWORLDLY OPERATIONS is Dreamworks latest attempt at a franchise starter, something they have failed to do recently. After the disappointing performance of TURBO this summer, the studio is looking for another movie that can be turned into television series, toys, and sequel features.

“B.O.O. is asupernatural action comedy (that) follows two bumbling apparitions who find themselves in an extraordinary after-life 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.”

In what sounds a lot like a cross between MONSTERS, INC. and MONSTERS VS ALIENS, Murray will play the villain, Addison Drake. I love Murray's movies and having another animated film with him in it will be a nice introduction for kids to his wide array of great films. This will mark Rogen's third venture with Dreamworks after MONSTERS VS ALIENS and KUNG FU PANDA.

B.O.O: BUREAU OF OTHERWORLDLY OPERATIONS will be directed and written by Tony Leondis (IGOR) and is slated for a June 5, 2015 release.

sounds like fun! Cool to see Murray in another ghost film, even if it is an animated one.

Wrong Comparisons

This is more like a cross between Men In Black and RIPD. Also, shouldn't this be called B.O.O.O.? I know 'of' usually isn't included, but it still spells the word.

I'm disappointed Rise of the Guardians and Turbo didn't find bigger audiences. I thought they were really enjoyable films (especially the former).

Seth Rogen seem to be well on his way to be Dreamworks' own John Ratzenberger. I mean, he's been in four Dreamworks animation film so far.
I'm glad that we can hear Bill Murray's voice acting again in a non-Garfield role, though.
