Sigourney Weaver says she would be unlikely to star in a Ghostbusters sequel without Bill Murray on board.
Co-star Dan Aykroyd said last month that a third instalment in the supernatural franchise could still go ahead, even if Murray decides against reprising his role as Peter Venkman.
But speaking to Collider.com, Weaver said she believes the original cast would decide against revisiting the franchise if Murray chose not to be involved.
"No, I don't think any of us would do it, if Bill said no. Why would we do that? I think the whole point is to get together and have fun," she explained.
Asked if a third Ghostbusters film hinged on Murray's decision-making, 61-year-old Weaver replied: "Yeah, and he probably loves that. No, I think he's just been busy. He's over in England playing Franklin D. Roosevelt. That's what I heard, anyway."
Weaver added she had not read a script for the mooted Ghostbusters sequel, but had asked director Ivan Reitman that her onscreen son Oscar grow up to join the ranks of the poltergeist exterminators.
