The actress confirmed she’ll join co-stars Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd in the sequel, as she reprises her role as cellist Dana Barrett.
“It’s going to be crazy working with the guys again!” Weaver told Parade magazine in a lengthy feature about her life and career.
Weaver introduced the role of Barrett, whose apartment was haunted by an evil spirit, in the original 1984 film. She had a feeling the movie would be a hit.
“I knew it would be big. The script was so funny and full of heart,” she said. “Ghostbusters changed my life.”
The Oscar-nominated actress wouldn’t give any secrets away about the new entry. But we do know it’s being helmed by Jason Reitman, son of original director Ivan Reitman.
