For those who don’t know, Ghostbusters turns 35 tomorrow  – and yes, I still recall being there opening night – and with Ghostbusters Fanfest happening in LA as I write this, I’m waiting for big news.

And none of it comes bigger than this.

In a new interview with the wonderful Sigourney Weaver in Parade (give it a read, it’s really good overall – link below) the actress is asked about reuniting with Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd (no mention of Ernie Hudson but we KNOW he’s up for coming back) and without breaking stride, she says: “It’s going to be crazy working with the guys again!”

The article notes that all she’ll add is that she is playing Dana Barrett again.

I seriously expect to hear more over the weekend from Fanfest – and I’m holding out for news on the return of Annie Potts, Rick Moranis, William Atherton and others but for now, this is such great news…

Let me know your thoughts.


From Ghostbusters Fanfest last night at the Sony lot in LA, it was revealed that while the actors haven’t signed up yet (it certainly sounds like they will), they have all read the script – including Ernie Hudson! –  and shooting is expected to begin in five short weeks.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
