“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.
The next installment — slated for a July 2020 release — won’t be associated with the 2016 all-female Paul Feig-directed reboot, which starred Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones.
Ghostbusters 3 is written by Reitman and Gil Kenan, and will be a followup to the original film.
Today is actually the 35th anniversary of the release of the original on June 8, 1984. To mark the occasion, there was a star-studded Ghostbusters Fan Fest presented by Wizard World at Sony Studios in Culver City, California.
