"I'm really honoured to get a chance to tell one back to him from the world he brought to life", he shared during an interview with an entertainment magazine.
The actor had a cameo role in Paul Feig's 2016 reboot as a talk show "expert", but this time, Dr. Peter Venkman is coming back for the first time in over 30 years for Ghostbusters: Afterlife.
Each of the returning cast members will reprise their roles in Ghostbusters: Afterlife, with Hudson's Winston Zeddemore and Akroyd's Ray Stantz joining Murray in representing the original Ghostbusters crew.More news: Quinton de Kock named South Africa ODI captain
"Well, we are a man down". "And we wore them for a long time".
Murray could be referring to the family ties between Egon and the new characters introduced in Ghostbusters: Afterlife.
No spoilers were revealed regarding the OGBs parts in the upcoming film, including how the story will navigate the absence of Egon Spengler, previously played by the late Harold Ramis.
Ghostbusters: Afterlife will focus on a new family with single mom Callie (Carrie Coon) and her two kids, Trevor and Phoebe (Finn Wolfhard & Mckenna Grace) who move into a beaten-down farmhouse in Oklahoma only to discover that there's something odd in the neighborhood. It also had the classic Ghostbusters suit, as well as ECTO-1 vehicle and the Proton Packs. Paul Rudd is co-starring as a teacher and ally to the small family.More news: Houston building explosion shakes city, scatters debris
It began to seem like we would never see Murray as Venkman again, though hope of it happening was restored in 2009 when he lent his voice to the character for Ghostbusters: The Video Game.
