Dan Aykroyd has given hope that Sigourney Weaver will be reprising her role as Dana Barrett in Ivan Reitman’s up and coming third ‘Ghostbusters’ movie, despite passing on the ‘Ghostbusters’ video game.
Weaver has previously stated that she would be open to the possibility of coming back as Dana as long as there was something for her to do. Which is fair enough.
Aykroyd told MTV: “When we do the ‘Ghostbusters 3’ movie, hopefully, Sigourney will be in it. I know we’ll make that happen. But there will be a whole new generation that has to be trained, and that whole new generation will be led by an individual who you’ll all love when you meet him but I’m not going to tell you anything yet.”
The 3rd movie will introduce a new group of students that are being trained by the ‘old gang’.
“They’ll be lots of cadets, boys and girls, who’ll be learning how to use the psychotron, the accelerators and all the new stuff, the neuron splitter, which is going to be the interplaner, interceptor and all these great tools that they’re going to have, to flip from dimension to dimension” Aykroyd explained.
The film should be hitting theatres worldwide sometime in 2011. Fingers crossed.
