Bill Murray has signed on to portray former US President Franklin D. Roosevelt in a film adaptation of the radio play Hyde Park on the Hudson reports Vulture - but still hasn't read the Ghostbusters 3 script.
Murray is notoriously reclusive and extremely picky about the films he does; but a second Ghostbusters sequel has been in development now for years and a script was apparently delivered to him in January. 'Hudson' will chronicle FDR’s love affair with his cousin, Margaret Stuckley, during a June weekend in 1939 when the British King and Queen visited Roosevelt’s upstate New York cottage in what was the first ever visit to America by a member of the British monarchy. Murray is a bit of a ringer for aul' FDR, so it would be applicable casting. Roger Michell (the underrated Morning Glory, Changing Lanes) will direct.
The Ghostbusters 3 production is apparently ready to go, if only Murray would give an indication if he'll return or not - but he isn't arsed. Sony have apparently offered to back a truck full of money up to his gaff and still no joy.
