Ghostbusters star Bill Murray sings Bob Dylan’s ‘Shelter From The Storm’ in the latest clip released from forthcoming comedy St Vincent.
The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last month as part of ‘Bill Murray Day’ where screenings were held of Ghostbusters, Stripes and Groundhog Day.
Murray appeared onstage during the film’s intro wearing a crown. “I like to feel that every day is Bill Murray day. At least for a second every day,” deadpanned the actor during a post-screening Q&A.
Murray’s character Vincent is a subdued Vietnam veteran with a drink problem and a penchant for gambling and strip clubs. When Maggie (Melissa McCarthy, Bridesmaids) moves in nextdoor Vincent becomes the most unlikely of child minders when he takes the chance to earn a few bucks and look after her son Oliver (Jaeden Lieberher) in a quirky coming of age tale.
The film’s synopsis has revealed: “Vincent helps Oliver grow to become a man, while Oliver begins to see in Vincent something that no one else is able to: a misunderstood man with a good heart.”
As reported, Bill Murray is set to voice Baloo in Disney’s reimagining of The Jungle Book directed by Jon Favreau.
Written and directed by Theodore Melfi and also starring Chris O’Dowd and Naomi Watts, St Vincent will be released in the UK December 5. Watch the clip below.
