Sigourney Weaver Will Also Be In That New GHOSTBUSTERS Movie

Sigourney Weaver Will Also Be In That New GHOSTBUSTERS Movie

Director Jason Reitman revealed Saturday afternoon that the stars of the original Ghostbusters have read the script of his new film in the franchise.

The event was a collaboration between Wizard World and Ghost Corps, Ivan Reitman and Dan Aykroyd's production company that oversees the Ghostbusters brand and expansion.

While nothing official has been announced about the original cast returning, Sigourney Weaver did confirm prior to this weekend's Ghostbusters Fan Fest that she will be back, with the article from Parade also seemingly confirming Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd. Jason Reitman remained cagey about any details for the film, saying cryptically "Sigourney has read the screenplay..."

"I've always thought of myself as the first Ghostbusters fan, when I was a six-year-old visiting the set", the younger Reitman told Entertainment Weekly. "What happened in the '80s happened in the '80s, and this is set in the present day". "Dan has read it. Ernie's read the script. Bill Murray has read the script".


The actress confirmed the news in a recent interview with Parade magazine, saying "it's going to be insane working with these guys again". Ernie's read the script...

He said: 'Ivan Reitman's son Jason has written a attractive script, I can't say too much about it but it's going to get made and hopefully there'll be some familiar faces'.

The Up in the Air director also talked about how his film will be "a love letter" to the 1984 original (capturing that iconic blend of humor and horror) and discussed the casting choices made so far. The film is eyeing a July 10th, 2020 release date.
