Last night, Dan Aykroyd tweeted that he was on set for Paul Feig’s new Ghostbusters reboot. He said that he was excited to be filming his scene with Kristen Wiig for the upcoming film. Aykroyd deleted the tweet shortly after, but it sent Twitter into a tailspin. His representatives have confirmed that Aykrod will appear in the film. No word on his exact role.
Ernie Hudson, also a part of the original cast, has said he would like to be involved with the new film. There has been no confirmation that he will have a role, as well.
In his now-deleted tweet, Aykroyd called the all-female Ghostbusters “adorable, hilarious, and badass.” The film is set to be released on July 22, 2016.
