Bill Murray Updates: Latest news today, Fans weren’t happy that Bill Murray wasn’t involved in “Asteroid City” after Focus Features joined the project and fresh details about the film were revealed. Soon after, fans started debating it on social media, only to discover later that the actor had been dropped from the upcoming film.
The actor, who frequently appears in Wes Anderson movies like “The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou” and “The Royal Tenenbaums,” was among the first to agree to star in the Spanish-set picture, which started filming last September. On Wednesday, Murray was conspicuously missing from the ensemble cast of the movie, which also includes Hanks, Tom Bobbie Robbie Scarlett Johansson, Steve Carell, Jeffrey Wright, Jason Schwartzman Ms. Tilda Swinton, Adrien Brody, Ed Norton, and Bryan Cranston. A close source told the media that Murray acquired COVID-19 soon before the movie’s September 2017 filming began, forcing the producers to recast his role. ‘Morning Show’ actor Carell reportedly took Murray’s position in the movie.
According to the sources, after learning that Searchlight Pictures halted production on Aziz Ansari’s “Being Mortal” in April as a result of a complaint of inappropriate behaviour made against Murray, rumours that Murray may have been dropped from the project proliferated. Murray’s absence from “Asteroid City,” according to insiders, has nothing to do with the allegations. The movie “Asteroid City,” which was co-written by Anderson and Roman Coppola, is described as a “poetic meditation on the meaning of existence.”
In the film, kids and parents from all over the country come together for academic competition, leisure time, entertainment, humour, drama, romance, and more. The story takes place in a 1955 Junior Stargazer convention in a village in the American desert. According to a source close to the publication, Murray obtained COVID-19 just before the film’s September 2017 filming began, causing the directors to replace his role.
Prior to departing, he is not known to have taped any scenes. The actor was among the first to agree to be in the Spanish-set film, which began filming last September. He frequently appears in Wes Anderson films like “The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou” and “The Royal Tenenbaums.” Murray was noticeably absent from the movie on Wednesday, which also starred Tom Hanks, Margot Robbie, Jason Schwartzman, Scarlett Johansson, Steve Carell, Jeffrey Wright, Tilda Swinton, Bryan Cranston, Ed Norton, and Adrien Brody. A source claims that Carell has taken Murray’s place in the film. Upcoming news today.
