Bill Murray Joining Cast of Untitled Cameron Crowe Movie? Actor Would Star Alongside Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone and Jay Baruchel [VIDEO, NEWS]
Bill Murray is in talks to join an already impressive ensemble cast in a new Cameron Crowe film, due in late 2014.
According to The Wrap, the untitled Sony project would be produced in Hawaii and is a romantic comedy starring Bradley Cooper as a defense contractor assigned to oversee the launch of a weapons satellite from Hawaii. While there, he meets and falls in love with an Air Force Pilot (Emma Stone), whom he then teams up with to destroy the launch.
The movie is reportedly a revamped version of an old Crowe script, Deep Tiki. If Murray joins the cast, he would star alongside Cooper (The Hangover, Silver Linings Playbook), Stone (Crazy Stupid Love, The Amazing Spider-Man), Rachel McAdams (The Notebook, Sherlock Holmes), Danny McBride, Alec Baldwin, Edi Gathegi and Jay Baruchel.
Baruchel joined the cast last week and will be playing Cooper's step-brother.
This would also be Murray's first time working with Crowe on a movie. No one involved in the possible deal has commented.
Murray, 63, is still actively making movies. He finished 2012 on a strong note, playing Franklin Delano Roosevelt in Hyde Park of Hudson, and co-starring in Moonrise Kingdom.
He will be seen later this year alongside George Clooney and Matt Damon in The Monument's Men, a World War II Drama that has already generated talks of possible Oscar buzz. Afterwards, he will be seen in the recently-wrapped St. Vincent de Van Nuys, and The Grand Budapest Hotel.
