Dan Aykroyd Confirmed For All-Female Ghostbusters



Dan Akroyd tweeted and then deleted confirmation he will be in the all-female Ghostbusters reboot.

The tweet reveals Dan Aykroyd will have a scene with Kristen Wiig.

"On GB set shooting my scene with funny beatufil Kristen Wiig," the deleted tweet reads. "Lady GB's are adorable, hilarious and bad ass. Exhilarating!"

It's currently not known what character Aykroyd is playing, but it's speculated to be some sort of "pass the torch" role.
