Bill's costar from the original films Dan Aykroyd confirmed on "The Greg Hill Show" that both he and Bill Murray will appear in the 2020 remake of the film, along with original cast members Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver and Annie Potts.
The 69-year-old actor has always been rumoured to be reprising his role as fan-favourite Dr. Peter Venkman in the new movie, but now co-creator Dan Aykroyd has confirmed the news during an appearance on The Greg Hill Show.
Invoice Murray confirmed for Ghostbusters 2020 return! "It hands the legacy off to a new generation of stars, and players, and actors, and characters", he added.
Interestingly, director Jason Reitman's father Ivan Reitman had previously helmed the first two Ghostbusters films which had proven to be super hits at the box office. He surprised fans by saying that the shooting for the film had already begun.
In any case, Murray has, in typical trend, however to comment on the news (while it is really worth noting that Sigourney Weaver has also proposed he's on board.) We're positive he'll be absolutely delighted to hear that his "Sure, Dan, I guess active gotta go" texts have now been translated into the complete-throated vote of acceptance for the motion picture that they had been plainly meant to be.
Giving it the hard sell it arguably doesn't even need, Aykroyd continued: "I have really good feelings about his, just because of the quality of the stars we've got there".
"We've got some really terrific young actors, a great story, a great setting".
"It's gonna be scary, really thought-provoking, it's gonna be very heart-felt".
A sequel set in the identical universe as the 2 authentic films was then confirmed in January of this yr, with Jason Reitman employed to direct and co-write the brand new film.
In particular, these new character posters emphasize Timothy Dalton's The Major, Diane Guerrero's Outrageous Jane, Joivan Wade's Cyborg, April Bowlby's Elasti-Lady, Matt Bomer's Detrimental Particular person and Brendan Fraser's Robotman.
"And I'm hoping that [the fans] join me on this one, because these characters are awesome".
