Sigourney Weaver confirms return for new Ghostbusters

It seems we may finally have confirmation that the original Ghostbusters cast will be returning for director Jason Reitman’s upcoming sequel, with Sigourney Weaver confirming to Parade that she will be reprising her role as Dana Barrett for the 2020 release.

Weaver went on to tell the outlet that “it’s going to be crazy working with the guys again” when asked about reuniting with her original co-stars Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd, which presumably means that we can expect to see Peter Venkman and Ray Stantz back on the big screen for the first time since 1989’s Ghostbusters II.

Of course, this isn’t entirely official until we hear it directly from Sony, but Murray has recently stated that he’s open to appearing in the film, while Ernie Hudson (Winston Zeddemore) has also suggested the cast will indeed be back in some capacity.

What capacity that may be remains a mystery however,

Sigourney Weaver Confirms ‘Ghostbusters’ Return Alongside Original Cast

Back in early April, I heard that Sigourney Weaver would be reprising her role as Dana Barrett in Jason Reitman's Ghostbusters, and sure enough, two months later, the three-time Oscar nominee has told Parade Magazine that she'll be back for more supernatural shenanigans. But that's not all, folks! Weaver also told Parade that "it's going to be crazy working with the guys again!" Now while she could, of course, simply be referencing producer Ivan Reitman, the last time I checked, he is but one man. He would not qualify as "guys," plural. Which is why …

Sigourney Weaver And Bill Murray Returning For Ghostbusters 3

Jason Reitman seems intent to get the whole band back together for his upcoming Ghostbusters movie. Comedian Bill Murray and three-time Academy Award nominee Sigourney Weaver are both set to reprise their roles from the original in the new film, where they’ll be joined onscreen by Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson, who also helped fight ghosts in the legendary 1984 comedy.

Murray will once again star as Peter Venkman, a parapsychologist who leads a group of similarly eccentric ghost hunters. Weaver, meanwhile, is returning as Dana Barrett, the musician who can’t seem to escape unwelcome attention from the paranormal. The success of the franchise helped launch both of these actors into very prestigious careers, so it’s nice to see them return to their roots all these years later.

Their involvement will also hopefully inspire the rest of the crew to reunite for one last hurrah. Harold Ramis unfortunately
