Meanwhile, What Venkman Is Up To...
Whilst Ghostbusters 3 gets fast-tracked, its original star is sticking to his indies and reteaming with director Sofia Coppola, she who guided him to his one and only Oscar nomination (ridiculous that’s it’s only one) with the sublime Lost In Translation.
Their teaming also marks a team-up between A24 and the slowly emerging Apple film division. Murray will play a larger than life (no, not the elephant movie) playboy dad reuniting with his daughter (Rashida Jones) on her visit to New York.
Filming on the movie, which is titled On The Rocks, begins shortly with an awards season release by the end of the year likely.
Where this leaves Murray in regard to the just announced Ghostbusters 3 remains to be seen.
