When Bill Murray says it, it is so. He's dead.

In the upcoming 'Ghostbusters' sequel, we mean.

In a recent interview with the Daily Mail -- in which the star defended his difficult reputation, said 'Groundhog Day' was robbed at the Oscars and claimed the few scenes that featured him in 1989's 'Ghostbusters 2' were "the only funny ones in the movie" -- Murray confirmed months (years?) of Internet speculation by stating for the record that yes, he'll be in 'Ghostbusters 3' and yes, he'll play a ghost.

"I said to them, 'I'll do it if you kill me off in the first reel'," he told Martyn Palmer. "So now they're going to have me as a ghost in the film."
