Just a few weeks after Afterlife's release date was pushed back a final time, Sigourney – who is set to reprise her role as Dana Barrett in the Ghostbusters II sequel – has reassured fans that the new title will "surprise everybody".
In a good way, that is.
Speaking to ET Canada ahead of Afterlife's November premiere, the actress explained the decision behind making yet another Ghostbusters story. "We just wanted to make a wonderful film," she admitted. "In those days you didn't really make sequels."
As for the new movie's tone, fans can expect it to be "full of heart". Weaver added: "It's very funny. It's very charming. And it will surprise everybody. It's just a glorious film."
Directed by Jason Reitman, taking over the franchise reins from his father Ivan, Afterlife follows single mum Callie (Coon) and her two kids as they relocate to a small Oklahoma town where they unearth their connection to the original Ghostbusters.
As well as introducing a new host of ghost-busting characters, Afterlife – which holds no connection to Paul Feig's doomed female-led reboot – will feature cameos from the likes of Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and Annie Potts.
Forget strange, there's something exciting in the neighbourhood.
Ghostbusters: Afterlife is out in cinemas on November 19, 2021.
