Ghostbusters 3 To Begin Shooting Soon, Original Cast Members Reportedly Confirmed

While the screen icon kept schtum about plot details, all she was willing to confirm was that she was returning for her original role as Dana. Finn Wolhard (Stranger Things), McKenna Grace (Captain Marvel), and Carrie Coone (The Leftovers) will be playing a family, but no other details are known beyond that.

Of course, the all-female reboot of "Ghostbusters" wasn't much of a commercial success, and while it received decent reviews, a sequel was never put into production. Weaver, who confirmed her role in the movie, will joined co-stars Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd in the new installment, which is described as a followup to the original Ghostbusters movie. "Dan has read it. Ernie's read the script. Bill Murray has read the script".

"I've always thought of myself as the first Ghostbusters fan, when I was a six-year-old visiting the set", the younger Reitman told Entertainment Weekly. "Bill Murray has read the script". "What happened in the '80s happened in the '80s, and this is set in the present day".

Jason Reitman will direct the upcoming threequel, taking up the mantle from his father Ivan Reitman who directed the original Ghostbusters (1984) and Ghostbusters 2 (1989).

Last week Powell opened the door to a cut if trade tensions cause US businesses to cut back on investment and hiring. The president said the same strategy will work in the United States trade talks with China.


However, during an interview with Parade Magazine, Weaver herself confirmed she will be in the movie, along with Murray and Aykroyd.

Reitman explained that he called "all the originals" and people who worked on the original movie to form an "advisory board of people who worked on the original film" to make sure they get Ghostbusters right.

The new Ghostbusters will be released on July 10, 2020.

Reitman co-wrote the screenplay with Gil Kenan.
