According to IMDB, Bill Murray is making an appearance in the new Ghostbusters reboot coming in 2016. It’s also rumored that Dan Aykroyd will. So, can I speak to Dana? I know, I know… There is no Dana… Only Zu’ul.
IMDB makes no mention of Sigourney Weaver, who played the orchestra player turned living embodiment of an ancient demigod, but thanks to writer and director Paul Feig for confirming what we’d hoped: Sigourney Weaver is in the movie as well.
Gang, trying to keep surprises but this is about to leak, so I’ll tell you myself: the awesome Sigourney Weaver is going to be in our movie!

With a cast that is deep in comedy, this looks like it’s going to be a great summer action comedy. Ghostbuster stars Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig taking on the lead roles as ghost fighting entrepreneurs. Chris Hemsworth, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon also star.
The original Ghostbusters was one of the best movies of the 1980s with many hilarious characters and very scenes that hold up well today. The original Ghostbusters starred Harold Ramis, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson as the proton pack wielding busters.
The new movie bring a female cast to play the lead parts. Written and Directed by Feig, who also wrote and directed the Melissa McCarthy movie Spy, as well as directing her in Bridesmaids and Heat.
Now, hopefully we’re just one tweet away from learning that Rick Moranis will reprise his role of Lewis in the reboot. Well, one can hope anyway.
Ghostbusters is currently in post-production and has a release date of July 10, 2016.
