The ‘Ghostbusters’ Cast Reunited 30 Years Later, And It’s The Best
Thirty years after saving New York City from a giant supernatural monstrosity made out of marshmallows, the cast of “Ghostbusters” has reunited once again.
The Today Show correspondent and “Ghostbusters” super-fan Al Roker sat down with Bill Murray (Peter Venkman), Ernie Hudson (Winston Zeddemore), Annie Potts (Janine Melnitz), Sigourney Weaver (Dana Barrett) and director Ivan Reitman for a look back at the comedy classic, thirty years after it premiered.
Notably absent: Dan Aykroyd, who is pictured on the Entertainment Weekly magazine cover from the photo-shoot, but not seen or mentioned during the video interview.
Harold Ramis, the “Ghostbusters” co-writer and man behind Egon Spengler, passed away earlier this year.
Seeing the erstwhile Peter Venkman in the same room as the rest of the “Ghostbusters” crowd is a bit surreal, considering how Murray has famously distanced himself from the franchise over the years. During the interview, he was asked why he’s been so resistant to the idea of a third “Ghostbusters” movie.
“The money’s not right yet,” he joked. “No, it’s hard to recreate something that was so beautiful, and something that wonderful.”
Of course, another “Ghostbusters” movie is on its way, directed by Paul Feig and starring an all-female lineup of paranormal investigators. Murray said that he and Hudson could still pop up in the reboot.
“I’d go for it,” said Hudson. “I’m an actor, man.”
