To quote the Video Blogger host of "Shameful Sequels" in his review to "Garfield 2" (paraphrased): "Bill Murray refuses to do Ghostbusters 3 but he says yes to this shit?"
Apparently it was a case of mistaken identity:

Of course, this does not explain why he did the second one as well (but to be fair: he was the best thing about those films).
If you think that Cohen / Coen thing is anything more than Murray being completely tongue-in-cheek, you need to think again. Bill Murray is basically the ultimate troll, and with Garfield, he got paid a truckload of money to go into a voice booth for a few days and record his dialogue.

In any event, I hope this finally kills the project once and for all.
Yeah, I don't believe the "Cohen/Coen" story for a minute it sounds to me like classic Bill Murray trying to make a joke out of a bad choice. If he likes the work of the Coens so much he'd certainly notice the different spelling of the name, the lack of the other brother and, oh, the fact that he never met them during production.
