Bill Murray Could Join Cameron Crowe’s Latest Romantic Comedy

By October 14, 2013


What a glorious collection of words! The Wrap and THR report that everyone’s favorite party crasher and good time guy, Bill Murray, is currently in talks to join Cameron Crowe’s long-gestating next project.

This is the currently untitled romantic comedy that stars Bradley Cooper as a defense contractor (comedic) “who falls for an Air Force pilot (Emma Stone) after he’s assigned to oversee the launch of a weapons satellite from Hawaii” (still comedic), and the duo will subsequently pair up to stop the launch (who knows why, but definitely romantic, though The Wrap does share it will involve “mystical island forces”). The film is a rew0rking of Crowe’s old script Deep Tiki.


It’s currently unknown what role Murray would fill (we’re guessing he’ll fall on the comedic side of things), but should he sign up, it will mark his first collaboration with Crowe. He’d also have plenty of fun costars to work alongside, including Rachel McAdams, Danny McBride, Alec Baldwin, Jay Baruchel, and Edi Gathegi. The film is slated to be released in 2014.

You can next see Murray in George Clooney’s The Monuments Men, which hits theaters on December 18. A brand new trailer for that film debuted last week, and you can check it out right here on GeekNation. Stay tuned for more.
