So more cameo news coming from the Ghostbusters reboot director himself. To avoid other people leaking the news (which keeps happening), Feig has tweeted confirmation that Sigourney Weaver will be appearing in his all-female Ghostbusters film in a mystery cameo role.
Is Zuul returning in Dana’s body?
While this is great news, I can’t help but think casting pretty much all the major characters from the classic original film is a desperate attempt to please fans, and their cameos won’t really add anything to the film. My guess is that fans will WANT to see their old heroes in the new film, and so it will sell a lot more tickets than the ridiculous idea of the reboot on its own merits.
Here’s the Tweet:
Gang, trying to keep surprises but this is about to leak, so I’ll tell you myself: the awesome Sigourney Weaver is going to be in our movie!
