It’s official – Bill Murray is coming back for Ghostbusters: Afterlife!

The 69-year-old actor has officially confirmed that he will be reprising his role as Peter Venkman in the upcoming Ghostbusters: Afterlife, which will be out in theaters on July 10.

Original cast members Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson were previously confirmed to return as ghostbusters Ray Stantz and Winston Zeddemore. The fourth member of the original team, Egon Spengler – played by Harold Ramis, died in 2014.

“Well, we are a man down. That’s the deal,” Bill shared with Vanity Fair. “And that’s the story that we’re telling, that’s the story they’ve written…The script is good. It’s got lots of emotion in it. It’s got lots of family in it, with through lines that are really interesting. It’s gonna work.”

According to the mag, each member of the original cast “has a meaningful role in the movie, but they won’t be the central heroes this time.”

Carrie Coon, Finn Wolfhard, Mckenna Grace, and Paul Rudd are joining the franchise for this new film.
