Ghostbusters 3 will be if nothing if not a reunion of the original Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II movies. With the recent news of Sigourney Weaver joining Dan Akroyd and Bill Murray in this new movie, it already began to feel like a throwback to the original films. Now, Annie Potts is teasing that she is joining the cast as well. Annie Potts originally appeared as the original Ghostbusters secretary Janine Melnitz and returned for the second film as well.
While it isn’t completely confirmed that Potts will be joining the film, she did hint at it. Arrow in the Head reported Potts saying, “I have heard some things. If it’s true, what I’ve heard — yeah, I think it’s gonna happen. I think I will”. Potts character, Melnitz, played the love interest of Rick Moranis’ character Louis Tully in the second film. It is unknown if her casting would bring Moranis into the film as well.
As more of the original cast appears to be coming into the fold of this movie, there is also a lot of new cast members as well. Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things), Carrie Coon (Gone Girl), and Mckenna Grace (Gifted) have been attached to Ghostbusters 3.
