Sierra Spring Break 08: Bill Murray recording his Ghostbusters game lines this week

Monday, 28th April 2008 20:11 GMT By Patrick Garratt

Speaking to videogaming247 at the Sierra Spring Break 08 in Mallorca last week, Terminal Reality boss Mark Randel said that Bill Murray would be recording his lines for the Ghostbusters game this week.

VG247: Did you actually get Bill Murray, or was it just his lines from the film that you used, as we have heard that Murray is a difficult man to get hold of?

Mark Randel: Bill Murray is scheduled to record his voice work, I think it’s next week. So yes we actually got Bill Murray to reprise his role as Peter Venkman.

VG247: [Surprised] Really? We heard he is quite difficult to get.

MR: John Melcher, the executive producer on Ghostbusters… it took him a long time to track him down but he was able to track him down. It’s an amazing job he did.

VG247: How?

MR: There’s a long story involved that I can’t tell you about but Melcher is very good at dealing with Hollywood stars.

Ghostbusters releases in October for PS3, 360, Wii, PS2 and DS.

    How exactly is it hard to track down Bill Murray? Doesn’t he have an agent?

    He’s notoriously difficult to convince to do anything, I think.

    I remember Sofia Coppolla saying it took her almost a year or something to get in contact with him to do Lost in Translation.

    They should do a Lost in Translation game. I’d play that.
