Peanut butter and jelly. Jack and Coke. Bill Murray and Wes Anderson. Some things are just meant to go together. Murray and Anderson have collaborated on six quirky films together (including the animated 'Fantastic Mr. Fox') and it would appear as though a seventh is in the offing. Wes Anderson won't be making 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' without his good luck charm, and apparently not without 'Murder She Wrote' legend Angela Lansbury!
If you still had any hope left for 'Ghostbusters 3,' feel free to casually discard it now: Bill Murray is officially, definitely no longer appearing in the film. It's been a long and dramatic journey for this dying horse, but it's safe to say maybe we should let it go with dignity now?
Not so fast -- the film will go on without Murray.
Bill Murray is a living legend. He's universally recognized as one of the best actors out there and is well-respected by many not only for his bold roles in both comedy and drama, but just for the many bold decisions he's made throughout his career. And also for being just an all-around awesome individual. Such awesomeness continued this past weekend with a classic Bill Murray moment.
Does anybody have a list of the movies Bill Murray could have been in if the notoriously hard-to-reach actor had only checked his messages? Apparently we can add one more mega-movie franchise to that healthy roster of missed opportunities, because Murray confirms that he could have been in ‘Iron Man,’ only Robert Downey Jr. couldn’t get a hold of him.
