Ghostbusters 2020 is officially gonna call Bill Murray!
On Friday, Murray’s original costar Dan Aykroyd — who is confirmed to be a part of the sequel — appeared on The Greg Hill Show this week and revealed that Murray would be reprising his role as Dr. Peter Venkman.
Aykroyd, 67, also announced that along with Murray, original cast members Sigourney Weaver, Ernie Hudson, and Annie Potts will make appearances in the upcoming sequel, which will serve as a follow-up to the 1984 original Ghostbusters, directed by Ivan Reitman.
Jason Reitman, who is the son of the original Ghostbusters director, wrote a “beautiful, heartfelt script that takes the real DNA from the first two movies and transfers that directly to the third, the next generation,” Aykroyd said. “It hands the legacy off to a new generation of stars, and players, and actors, and characters.”
