Cameron Crowe's new movie may also feature a little Bill Murray. That's the word from TheWrap, which reports that Murray is negotiating to join the cast of Crowe's latest feature. The film already stars Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Rachel McAdams, Danny McBride, Alec Baldwin and Jay Baruchel.
Production began on Crowe's untitled comedy back on Sept. 26 in Hawaii. It has long been thought that the feature is a re-working of a previous Crowe script, called "Deep Tiki," about a military defense contractor navigating the waters between his relationships and a satellite launch. TheWrap's Jeff Sneider offered this updated log line when breaking the Murray news:
The romantic comedy stars Bradley Cooper as a defense contractor who’s assigned to oversee the launch of a weapons satellite from Hawaii, where he falls for an Air Force pilot (Emma Stone). With the help of mystical island forces, they team up to scuttle the launch.
No word yet on the part Murray will play, but expect it to be a supporting role. Should the deal work out, Crowe's film would become an unofficial "Zombieland" reunion, as Stone and Murray shared one hilarious scene in that 2009 comedy. ("I'm sorry, he just gets me. But it's still sad.")
