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.

In May, Murray said he would make another Ghostbusters film, telling Indiewire,
“It’s going to be crazy working with the guys again!” she told Parade Magazine. However, she stayed mum on any further details.
Weaver starred in 1984’s “Ghostbusters” as well as 1989’s sequel, and had a cameo in the 2016 all-female reboot starring Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy.

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.
