Original Cast Members Returning For Next ‘Ghostbusters’ Entry

by Thomas Tuna

The old gang is answering the call.

Three cast members of the original 1984 Ghostbusters will make cameo appearances in the next installment in the popular franchise, according to a report in The Sun.

Bill Murray, Sigourney Weaver and Dan Aykroyd reportedly will be back in the saddle for the GhostbustersAfterlife sequel slated for a theatrical release sometime around Christmas.

The new Sony Pictures project–codenamed Firehouse–will also reportedly move locations from its familiar New York City backdrops to London, where the film is expected to start shooting in March.

The as-yet-untitled feature is directed by Gil Kenan–who wrote and produced Afterlife–from a screenplay from producer Jason Reitman. Sources also indicate that several ensemble members from the last film–including Paul Rudd and Carrie Coon–are expected to return.

The original Ghostbusters–directed and produced by Ivan Reitman from a screenplay by Aykroyd and Harold Ramis–follows three eccentric parapsychologists who start a ghost-catching business in Manhattan. The film–nominated for two Academy Awards–earned nearly $300 million worldwide.
