But according toIndie Revolver, Aykroyd will make a cameo as a cabbie who deniesKristen Wiig's character a ride. Aykroyd allegedly told Wiig, "I ain't afraid of no ghosts!" to which the actress responds along the lines of, "That's a double negative! That means you are afraid of ghosts!"
Ghostbusters is set for a July 22, 2016 release.
