Sigourney Weaver is the latest cast member from the original Ghostbusters to join Paul Feig's all-female reboot of the franchise.
The 53-year-old director knew that trying to keep the casting of Weaver a secret was going to be difficult, so he decided to take to Twitter and reveal the information before anyone else could. "Gang, trying to keep surprises, but this is about to leak, so I'll tell you myself: the awesome Sigourney Weaver is going to be in our movie!" he wrote.

Weaver played the character of Dana Barrett in the first two films, but it's unclear if she will reprise that role. Original cast members, Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, and Ernie Hudson, will also appear in the reboot, which stars starring Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones, but details about their cameos haven't been confirmed.
