Actress Sigourney Weaver has revealed more about the Ghostbusters 3 movie, confirming her character’s son, Oscar, will play an integral part.

The stars and crew of the movie spoke to Vanity Fair to mark the 30th anniversary of the original movie, in which she played the part of Dana Barrett, and Weaver revealed she had spoken to producer Ivan Reitman about her return for the third film in the franchise.

“I said, I have one condition. I want my son Oscar [from Ghostbusters II] to be a Ghostbuster, and he said, ‘We’ve already done that.”

Dan Akroyd, who played the part of Ray Stanz and is Ghostbusters co-creator, is already confirmed to be involved in the new script, while Rick Moranis and Ernie Hudson, who played Louis Tully and Winston Zeddmore respectively, are also said to be keen to return.

The pair happily discussed their characters fate, with Moranis joking that he thinks Tully is “in prison, a cellmate of Bernie Madoff’s. They compete to see who can make their bed first in the mornings.”

Hudson added that he can see Winston as “the CEO of Ghostbusters,” and “hopefully we can still wear the backpacks.”

The only sticking point seems to be Bill Murray, who is more than a little reluctant to reprise his role as Peter Venkman. “Absolutely everyone wants Bill Murray,” scriptwriter Etan Cohen explained. “But everyone has great faith in the franchise.”
