What!? Sigourney Weaver has joined Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot too? Is this still a reboot!?

September 25th, 2015 by Marc Comments


Ok, so we know Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and Annie Potts is in Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot. Well, guess what… Sigourney Weaver is in it now too. That’s all the principal cast except for Rick Moranis and, obviously, the late Harold Ramis.

Is this REALLY not a soft reboot?! Because having the whole cast back for a movie that’s not attached to the original seems a bit, well, excessive.

Feig tweeted earlier today that Weaver had signed on to the movie but no word on what role she’s playing… Dana Barrett? Unlikely.

While I can’t see it happening, if this isn’t a sequel of sorts I think I might cry now… having the whole team back in a GB movie NOT related to the originals seems like… torture?

Or maybe I’m just feeling emotional. either way, the gang’s all back!

Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon and Chris Hemsworth star in Ghostbusters which arrives on July 22, 2016.

Feig’s Tweet is below:


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….
