New ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot will include a cameo by Dan Aykroyd as a cabbie

Director Paul Feig‘s reboot of Ghostbusters doesn’t seem to have any ties to the original franchise, but that they may see stars of the 1984 Ghostbusters in the new film.

Dan Aykroyd has just announced that he was on the set of Ghostbusters, shooting a scene with Kristen Wiig, detailing his character’s role in the movie.

Aykroyd’s excited post on Facebook about production:

“ON SET OF GHOSTBUSTERS SHOOTING MY SCENE WITH THE FUNNY AND BEAUTIFUL KRISTEN WIIG. LADY GB’S are adorable, beautiful,…”

The Wrap followed up on that remark and learned that Aykroyd will be playing a cab driver in a scene with Wiig’s character.

That was first reported on at IndieRevolver, but they reportedly had to take it down at the request of the studio, only to have it reported in the trades later.

Rumors confirmed that the line from the original Ghostbusters theme song by Ray Parker Jr. “Who ya gonna call?” will be the slogan of cab company that he works for

No word on whether or not any of the other Ghostbusters cast members will make time for a cameo.

The main cast is Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones in the lead ghostbusting roles, not to mention Chris Hemsworth, Andy Garcia, Michael K. Williams, Neil Casey, Matt Walsh.

Ghostbusters arrives in theaters on July 22nd, 2016.
