Just in time for Halloween, DreamWorks Animation has a big treat for audiences: legendary funny man Bill Murray (pictured in Ghostbusters) will join the all-star cast of B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations as villainous ghost, Addison Drake.
Jennifer Coolidge, pictured below as Stifler’s mom in American Pie, will play Carol Sue, a bubbly transitions-relations officer. Academy Award winner Octavia Spencer will play the tough as nails Sr. B.O.O. officer, Captain Book. The trio will join the previously announced Seth Rogen, Melissa McCarthy, Rashida Jones and Matt Bomer in this original film set to be released by Twentieth Century Fox on June 5, 2015.
“This supernatural action comedy 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.”
Based on an original idea by Tony Leondis (Igor), who is also directing, the film is produced by Maryann Garger (Flushed Away) and the screenplay is being written by Tom Wheeler (Puss in Boots).
