Sigourney Weaver will be in the new Ghostbusters film

Susana Polo is an entertainment editor at Polygon, specializing in pop culture and genre fare, with a primary expertise in comic books. Previously, she founded The Mary Sue.

The prophecy is fulfilled: Legendary actress Sigourney Weaver is among the growing number of the original Ghostbusters cast who will return to cameo in Paul Feig's upcoming reboot.

Annie Potts, who played receptionist Janine Melnitz, as well as the three living actors who comprised the original Ghostbusters — Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson — are confirmed to appear in the reboot, which will star Melissa McCarthy, Kristin Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones and Chris Hemsworth.

Today, director Paul Feig tweeted confirmation of Weaver's involvement as well:

It's not likely that Weaver will not be reprising her role as Dana Barrett (or the Zuul-possessed Gatekeeper) for the film, but rather will probably appear in an unrelated cameo role. But we're willing to bet that she could still rock a gold lamé shift and match Bill Murray in wit.
