Jason Reitman's eagerly anticipated Ghostbusters sequel is preparing to begin principal photography this summer, and original star Annie Potts believes she will be asked to return to the iconic franchise.
While promoting Toy Story 4, in which she reprises her fan-favorite role as Bo Peep, Potts hinted that there have been initial talks to return to Reitman's upcoming film, 30 years since her last appearance in Ghostbusters II.
"If it's true what I've heard -- and I'm not at liberty -- yeah, I think it's going to happen," Potts disclosed in an interview with KTLA, though she remained coy on details.
Potts appeared in the original 1984 film and its 1989 sequel as Janine Melnitz, the team's receptionist and assistant. Along with rest of the original cast, Potts reprised her role in a vocal performance for the 2009 Ghostbusters video game. Whether Potts will reprise her role as Janine in the upcoming film, or take on a new role entirely is currently unknown.
Ghostbusters is directed by Jason Reitman (Up in the Air) who also co-wrote the film with Gil Kenan (Monster House). The film stars Finn Wolfhard, Carrie Coon and Mckenna Grace and is scheduled for release on July 20, 2020.
