Returning actors include Sigourney Weaver, Ernie Hudson, Annie Potts, and Akroyd. The Independent has confirmed that they’ll be starring alongside Finn Wolfhard, Paul Rudd, Carrie Coon, and McKenna Grace.
The sequel will be directed by Jason Reitman, son of the original Ghostbusters director, Ivan Reitman. Akroyd told The Greg Hill Show, 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.”
