Another incredibly cool woman has joined the cast of Ghostbusters, and this one has a history with spectral beings.

Sigourney Weaver, who starred in the original two Ghostbusters movies, will be in the reboot starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, and a host of other awesome ladies. Director Paul Feig revealed Weaver's participation on Twitter. Feig wrote: "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!"

A rep for Feig said in an email to Refinery29 that Feig had no further comment on the matter. Earlier in the week, Feig wrote that "everyone should know that any and all cameo announcements are leaks and nothing we wanted made public. Media, please take note."

At this point, it's no surprise that an original cast member will be in the new film. Bill Murray will reportedly be back, as will Dan Aykroyd, Annie Potts, and Ernie Hudson, who recently posted a photo of himself with the cast on Twitter.

Weaver — a badass icon in her own right — played Peter Venkman's-love interest Dana, a musician who was a victim to an unfortunate, though sexy, incident of possession. (Just remember, there is no Dana, only Zuul.)

This week was a busy one for Feig on Twitter. The director also took some time to combat trolls attacking the new movie.
