Murray heads to Hawaii with Crowe?

Bill Murray is in talks to join Cameron Crowe's new film, which has started filming in Hawaii.

The Lost In Translation star is said to be in negotiations to appear in an undisclosed role in the as-yet-untitled romantic comedy, reported The Wrap.

It would be the first time that Cameron has worked with the 63-year-old.

Bradley Cooper is already on board to play a defence contractor who is assigned to oversee the launch of a weapons satellite from Hawaii, before he falls in love with an Air Force pilot, played by Emma Stone. They then team up to scuttle the launch.

Rachel McAdams will also star, alongside Danny McBride, Alec Baldwin, Edi Gathegi and Jay Baruchel, who joined the cast as the step-brother of Bradley's character.

The film, which is a revamped version of Cameron's Deep Tiki script, is expected to be released in 2014.

Scott Rudin, who has worked with Bill before on the Wes Anderson films, will produce the movie for Sony.

Bill, who received an Oscar nomination for his performance in Sofia Coppola's Lost In Translation, has a number of upcoming roles including Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel, St Vincent De Van Nuys and George Clooney's World War II drama Monuments Men.
