There have been plenty of mixed feelings about director Paul Feig's Ghostbusters reboot. As you know, Sony is completely rebuilding the franchise as a new entity. One in which original Ghostbusters Dr. Peter Venkman, Dr. Raymond Stantz, Dr. Egon Spengler and Winston Zeddmore don't exist. The same goes for Sigourney Weaver's legendarily possessed New York single mother Dana Barrett and her son Oscar. While original cast mates Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson have shown their support in the past few months, we're only now hearing from Sigourney Weaver. Speaking with Sreen Rant from the Red Carpet of Chappie, she expressed her support for this new all-female Ghostbusters:
"I think that's awesome. I think it's great. I think it's going to be fantastic. I can't wait to see it."
The new Ghostbusters has already found its cast, with Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy taking the leads, and current Saturday Night Live players Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon rounding out the core group of spirit chasers. We've heard that Bill Murray is being considered for the villain role, a mayor-type figure that tries to shut the Ghostbusters down. But at this time, none of the original 1984 cast is confirmed to participate. Though, Sigourney Weaver does hope for a cameo. She says:
"They might have us pop up as marshmallow men or something and then destroy us. I don't know. I hope they will think of some silly way for us to be in it. Maybe I could play that ancient librarian who goes [makes noise]."
What do you think? Will it be blasphemous not to have Sigourney Weaver and the other still-living members of the original cast show up? Or will it be too distracting to have any of them appear in the movie? We know some of you think they should just scrap this whole plan all together, but according to Dan Aykroyd, a true Ghostbusters sequel may be in the cards if this reboot is successful.
