Bill Murray considers new restaurant for Crowne Plaza Chicago O'Hare and Conference Center

A hotel in Chicago's suburbs may soon get a restaurant inspired by a classic comedy film...and backed by one of the film's stars. 

The Crowne Plaza Chicago O'Hare and Conference Center in Rosemont, Ill. is looking to open two new restaurants, one of which will be a golf-themed sports bar run by Bill Murray and his brothers and inspired by Murray's 1980 film Caddyshack. 

According to the Daily Herald, the Murrays have a verbal agreement for an 11,000-square-foot space inside the hotel and are now working to get a written lease. In order to get the lease, the team behind the restaurant would need to submit blueprints for village review, and there is no set date for that yet.
