No stranger to ghostly settings, Bill Murray will voice the villain in DreamWorks Animation’s “B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations.”

Seth Rogen, Melissa McCarthy, Rashida Jones, Octavia Spencer and Matt Bomer will also be voicing characters.

The 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.

“Bill Murray is the perfect actor to bring this character to life – or should I say after-life?” said Director Tony Leondis. “Along with Jennifer and Octavia, this is a dream cast. I can’t imagine a team more capable of packing a funnier punch to this broadly comedic ghost story.”

Murray can be seen next in Sony’s “The Monuments Men” in February.
