B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations was the title of American computer-animated supernatural action comedy film to be made by DreamWorks Animation. It is based on an original idea and directed by Tony Leondis. Tom Wheeler was said to be writing the script, with Maryann Garger as producer and Courtney Pledger as executive producing. The film would have starred Seth Rogen, Melissa McCarthy and Bill Murray and would have been released by Universal Pictures.


Two bumbling apparitions find themselves in an extraordinary after-life adventure when they join the Bureau of Otherworldly Operations (B.O.O.) – the ghost world’s elite counter-haunting unit – and ultimately must face off against the planet’s greatest haunter.

On Hold

In January 2015, DreamWorks Animation announced the closing of their Redwood City, California studio, and the laying off of over 500 artists. As a result, B.O.O: Bureau of Otherwordly Operations has been dropped entirely from the production slate for the studio, and pushed back into an “in development” status.[1]
