Oh, man. Now who we gonna call? 

It's no secret that Bill Murray has no real interest in reprising the role of Dr. Peter Venkman, but that doesn't mean he's outright all out of love for ghosts. In fact, it's just been made official that he'll be playing a particularly nasty specter in the new Dreamworks movie B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations.

According to director Tony Leondis, the film is about "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."

Murray will be taking on the role of big bad ghost Addison Drake. He joins a pretty solid cast that includes Seth Rogen, Melissa McCarthy and Rashida Jones. That's a diverse comedic bunch. Certainly enough to get our PKE meters going.

B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations is due to come out on June 5, 2015.
