Bill Murray in Talks to Join New Cameron Crowe Movie
Bill Murray: licensed to launch satellites by the government of the United Nations—or at least that’s somewhat close to the plot of Cameron Crowe’s mysterious film project, which TheWrap says Murray could soon be joining. A longtime friend and collaborator with producer Scott Rudin, Murray is currently in talks to join Rudin and Crowe in Hawaii for their upcoming romantic comedy that may or may not tell a tale of a defense contractor who is responsible for launching missiles via satellite from a military base in the Pacific.
Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone are already on board as the romantically involved stars of the film, while names like Rachel McAdams, Danny McBride and Alec Baldwin have been floating around as potential supporting roles.
It would be Murray’s first time working under Crowe’s directorship if he were to join the untitled Sony Pictures project. Though the details of the film have been remarkably vague, we do know that the script is based on an updated version of an old Crowe script called Deep Tiki, and the film is expected to come out sometime in 2014.
