She was (is?) on Saturday Night Live as well.
I think some of the original cast were in the female remake. But I believe they were not playing the original characters, correct? So if they were not making that movie a direct sequel or in the same universe, why she so mad?
Ghostbusters Fan Fest doesn’t begin until tomorrow, but it sounds like some news that was maybe meant to be a surprise announcement has come to light straight from the horse’s mouth.
Sigourney Weaver has confirmed that she will be returning as Dana Barrett in the developing Ghostbusters sequel set for release in 2020. Furthermore, it sounds like Bill Murray will also be coming back as well.
That’s huge news since none of the legacy cast members from the original franchise have been confirmed to be part of the new sequel. Even Dan Aykroyd, who is producing and writing the movie, hasn’t confirmed whether or not he appears in it. This is also the first time we’ve heard of Bill Murray being involved as well, though he did recently say that he’d happily join in the fun if he was asked.
We’ve reached out to Sigourney Weaver’s representatives to confirm this news, but we haven’t heard back yet. So we’ll update as soon as we hear anything else.
Entertainment Weekly has brought word that Ernie Hudson will be reprising his role as Winston Zeddemore from the classic sci-fi comedy Ghostbusters for the upcoming reboot alongside original co-stars Sigourney Weaver (The Cabin in the Woods), Dan Aykroyd (Zombieland: Double Tap) and Annie Potts (Toy Story 4).
Aykroyd made his announcement on “The Joe Rogan Experience” podcast, saying: “We’ve got the Ghostbusters movie that we’re working on now and I will have to be performing in that. Ivan Reitman’s son Jason has written a new movie called, well, it’s gonna be Ghostbusters, the third movie. It will be all, most of the original people and then young stars.”
