Murray allegedly filmed a scene in the new Ghostbusters is this summer’s biggest shocker, especially after such a long and well documented hesitancy to be a part of the universe.
Murray originally portrayed Dr. Peter Venkman in the first two films, which hit theaters in 1984 and 1989. Murray told Letterman earlier this year that he was loathe to appear in a new Ghostbustersproperty after Ghostbusters II didn’t receive the same acclaim as the first film.
In January, we reported that Murray might play, “…Martin Heiss, a man who is a professional supernatural debunker who is out to prove that the Ghostbusters are frauds.” The role is a hysterical flip on his portrayal as Dr. Peter Venkman in which he tormented William Atherton’s Walter Peck, who eventually shut down the containment unit, setting loose thousands of haunts across New York City.
Murray’s involvement in a new Ghostbusters film has been a long and difficult road. Back in 2012, Aykroyd stated that Murray would not be involved in a third film, which was going to be directed by Ivan Reitman and was rumored to bring back Aykroyd, alongside Harold Ramis, Ernie Hudson, Rick Moranis, and Sigourney Weaver in their respective roles. However, in September of last year, Reitman harbored hopes that Murray would return, saying, “…he never says yes until literally just before the shoot.”
The highlight, though, was word that Murray had shredded the script and sent it back to Sony and the film’s producers.
Ghostbusters is currently filming in Boston, where Murray was spotted, and stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones and Chris Hemsworth. It will haunt theaters on July 22nd, 2016.
We’re even more excited and curious to see what the all-female “Ghostbusters” reboot has in store, now that we’ve gotten our first look at Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Kristen Wiig in costume on the first day of shooting on set in Boston, which is standing in for New York City.
