Bill Murray is returning to the world of ghosts and ghouls in new animated movie B.O.O: Bureau Of Otherworldly Operations.

The Ghostbusters star has signed up to voice villainous ghost Addison Drake in the movie, DreamWorks Animation announced.

The supernatural comedy will centre around two apparitions who join the ghost world's leading counter-haunting unit.

Jennifer Coolidge and Octavia Spencer have also been cast, with Jennifer as a "transitions relations officer" and Octavia as Senior B.O.O. officer Captain Book.

Director Tony Leondis said: "Bill Murray is the perfect actor to bring this character to life - or should I say after-life? Along with Jennifer and Octavia, this is a dream cast. I can't imagine a team more capable of packing a funnier punch to this broadly comedic ghost story."

The newcomers will join Seth Rogen, Melissa McCarthy, Rashida Jones and Matt Bomer, who are already on board.

B.O.O: Bureau Of Otherworldly Operations will be r eleased by Twentieth Century Fox on June 5, 2015.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Pisces:

It's sometimes difficult for a retiring person like you to showcase your talent. You are tired of being eclipsed by pushy rivals. By showing your work to the right people, you can finally gain the fame and acclaim you deserve. Fortunately, an influential friend, neighbour or colleague can set up an interview or introduction. An important executive or critic will be impressed by your efforts. If you're offered an unpaid position as an intern or apprentice, take it. This will lead to professional opportunities you couldn't find through other channels.More
