On Nov, 8th Dan Aykroyd was a guest on The Greg Hill radio show, with one statement he made going viral in the Ghostbusters fan community, Aykroyd confirmed that he and the other original cast members have not only been cast in the movie but were able to shoot their parts during principal production this spring. “We’ve shot our parts. Myself, Murray (Bill), Sigourney (Weaver), and Annie Potts, and it was really exciting working on this new idea, a new take on the story…” Aykroyd said.
Since the teaser trailer was surprised revealed earlier this year, casting rumors have been trickling in over the last few months. Some vague confirmations have bled through, but never an official announcement from Sony. Ernie Huson revealed in a Cameo video that he was shooting his part. Through other interviews both Annie Potts and Sigourney Weaver mentioned that they were also part of the film. Claims of Bill being seen on the set of Calgary also spread, but nothing more was ever seen other than a pic of the 3 remaining Ghostbusters having dinner together.
So while this is still not an official statement from Sony, this is the closest we have gotten to an actual real notion the our beloved OG cast is back and will be in GB 2020.
