“Ghostbusters” franchise co-creator Dan Aykroyd has confirmed that Bill Murray will indeed be reprising his famed role of Dr. Peter Venkman for the upcoming third “Ghostbusters” film which recently wrapped shooting.
In an interview with The Greg Hill Show, Aykroyd confirmed the news. Murray was the last of the main trio of surviving ‘Ghostbusters’ yet to confirm their return with both Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson previously confirming their returns.
Actresses Sigourney Weaver and Annie Potts also confirmed the reprisals of their roles. Of the remaining two regulars, Rick Moranis has mostly retired from the industry while the film will potentially address the absence of the late Harold Ramis.
The movie also stars Mckenna Grace, Finn Wolfhard and Carrie Coon in the main roles while Paul Rudd will be playing a teacher. The focus will be on Coon’s single mom and her family (Wolfhard and Grace play her kids).
Jason Reitman directed the new film, taking over from his father Ivan Reitman who helmed the first two and will produce. The new “Ghostbusters” hits July 10th 2020.
