Bill Murray is heading back to the world of ghosts. According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, Murray has been cat in the upcoming animated film B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations. Murray has reportedly signed on to play the villain role in the film.

Murray’s addition to the cast is not only a return for the comedian to material involving ghosts, as fans are still waiting for a third Ghostbusters film, but he joins a stacked cast of acting talent. In addition to Murray, B.O.O. already includes such names as Jennifer Coolidge, Octavia Spencer, Seth Rogen, Melissa McCarthy, Rashida Jones and Matt Bomer among its voice cast.

If you’re wondering what B.O.O. is about, DreamWorks Animation’s synopsis reads that 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.

So far, everything about the film looks and sounds great, but only time will tell if it can register as an animated hit. The film is set up to succeed though as B.O.O. is adding itself to an already stacked 2015 summer slate, as you can expect to see all the action go down on June 5, 2015.
