"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.
The news was revealed during a recent interview with Dan Aykroyd. The actor confirmed that Bill Murray, Sigourney Weaver, and Annie Potts each completed their work on Ghostbusters 2020. Strangely, he left out Ernie Hudson, but he already confirmed his involvement earlier this year.
Aykroyd had this to say about Jason Reitman's story.
"Jason Reitman wrote a beautiful, heartfelt script that takes the real DNA from the first two movies and transfers that directly to the third, the next generation. It hands the legacy off to a new generation of stars, and players, and actors, and characters."
It's nice to finally have official confirmation that Bill Murray has joined Ghostbusters 2020. Sigourney Weaver had said before she was reuniting with the team, but did not say who that would be specifically. Murray himself said he was open to returning after revealing how much the franchise means to him and how much it changed his life. But, he played coy when asked if that was actual confirmation or not.
