Murray, Aykroyd, and Weaver to Reprise Roles for New Ghostbusters

-

Following the Ghostbusters 35th announcement, we’re getting even more Ghostbusters news today! In an interview with Parade (via ComingSoon.net), Sigourney Weaver has confirmed that she, Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd will reprise their roles for director Jason Reitman’s upcoming Ghostbusters movie.

“It’s going to be crazy working with the guys again!” she says. She didn’t reveal any details except to confirm she’s reprising her role as Dana Barrett from the first two films. Bill Murray played Dr. Peter Venkman and Dan Aykroyd was Dr. Raymond Stantz.

Scheduled for a July 10, 2020 release, the film also stars Mckenna Grace (Captain Marvel), Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things, It Chapter Two), and Carrie Coon (Widows, The Sinner) as a family. Grace has been described as the ostensible lead, with Wolfhard playing her brother and Coon her single mother.

The sequel to the Ghostbusters movies made in the 1980s will center on four teens, one set older, one set younger, with a focus on one family in particular.

The new Ghostbusters movie is set in the world of the original two films, which were directed by Jason’s father, Ivan Reitman. “This is the next chapter in the original franchise. It is not a reboot. What happened in the ‘80s happened in the ‘80s, and this is set in the present day,” said Jason Reitman previously.

Reitman co-wrote the screenplay with Gil Kenan. You can watch the previously-released teaser below.

UPDATE: The original Ghostbusters have read the new screenplay! Read what Jason Reitman said at the Ghostbusters Fan Fest!
