The ladies have taken over the ‘Ghostbusters’ universe! But is Sigourney Weaver, the original female member of the supernatural cast pleased with the new flick? HollywoodLife.com has the scoop here!
Sigourney Weaver‘s opinion of the new female-led Ghostbusters reboot is a very important one. After all, she was the only woman with a large role in the original 1984 film and its 1989 sequel. So what does the 66-year-old actress have to say about the new flick, comprised of an all-female paranormal fighting cast? HollywoodLife.com has the answer here!
“To be able to hand Ghostbusters over to these incredibly talented women felt perfect, and it was time,” Sigourney, who starred in the original films alongside Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson, said in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar for the magazine’s August issue. “There is such wonderful chemistry between the four of them. That does remind me of the boys because they were old friends and they had worked together a lot too. That kind of comedic pairing is just gold. You just turn the camera on and let them go at it.”
How great is that! Sigourney is totally happy about the girl power going on the in the new film and we LOVE it! But how could she not be with the all-star cast comprised of Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones? Those ladies are definitely not afraid of no ghosts! It was announced on Sept. 25, 2015 that Sigourney would be joining the other ladies with a cameo in the reboot when Paul Feig sent out 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.” After that fans started FREAKING out about what exactly the Oscar-nominee’s role in the new film would be, as Sigourney played Dana Barrett in the originals, a possessed cellist who was also Bill’s love interest.
“I think the fans are going to be pleased by how we pop up,” Sigourney said. “It’s just a very sweet movie but also very funny and kind of crazy. I think that’s a big part of what films can do — take us to another world.” The new film hits theaters July 15 and we are even more excited for it now that we know Sigourney is SO on board.
