Aykroyd discussed the new movie on "The Greg Hill Show", and talked about the return of both he and Murray, who played Dr. Raymond Stantz and Dr. Peter Venkman respectively in the movies from the 1980s.
While Murray rose to fame on Saturday Night Live, and has appeared in comedies including Scrooged, Groundhog Day, and the first two instalments of the Ghostbusters franchise, the comedy legend recently landed himself a new side gig after applying to work at an airport restaurant in Atlanta, Georgia. He surprised fans by saying that the shooting for the film had already begun. "It hands the legacy off to a new generation of stars, and gamers, and actors, and people". "And it was really exciting working on this new idea and new take on the story which Jason, who's a really incredible, fine filmmaker came up with".
The sequel will be directed by Jason Reitman, son of the original Ghostbusters director, Ivan Reitman.
He continued: "I have really good feelings about his, just because of the quality of the stars we've got there".
"We've got some really terrific young actors, a great story, a great setting".
The Independent has confirmed that they'll be starring alongside Finn Wolfhard, Paul Rudd, Carrie Coon, and McKenna Grace. Ernie Hudson will also be returning, making for three out of the original four Ghostbusters team.
Director Jason Reitman was reluctant to share too many details about the project.
In particular, these new character posters emphasize Timothy Dalton's The Major, Diane Guerrero's Outrageous Jane, Joivan Wade's Cyborg, April Bowlby's Elasti-Lady, Matt Bomer's Detrimental Particular person and Brendan Fraser's Robotman. Amazing, and I can't wait to introduce you to them.
