During an appearance on Amy Schumer’s podcast last month, Bill Murray revealed that the job he’d like to have if he weren’t an actor would be working at P.F. Chang’s at Atlanta’s airport, citing the restaurant as "one of the great places." Naturally, the chain instantly offered Murray a job via Twitter. But Murray probably won’t be taking them up on the proposal anytime soon—co-star Dan Aykroyd just confirmed that the actor and other members of the original Ghostbusters crew will appear in next year’s sequel, Ghostbusters 2020.

"Jason Reitman wrote a beautiful, heartfelt script that takes the real DNA from the first two movies and transfers that directly to the next generation—it hands the legacy off to a new generation of stars, and players, and actors, and characters," said Aykroyd in an interview on The Greg Hill Show. "We’ve shot our part, myself, Murray, Sigourney, and Annie Potts, and it was really exciting working on this new idea and new take on the story which Jason, who’s a really incredible and fine filmmaker, came up with."

Ernie Hudson is also confirmed to appear in the film as his character Winston Zeddemore. Harold Ramis, who starred as Egon Spengler and co-wrote the original films with Aykroyd, died in 2014. A memorial bust of his character appeared in the 2016 Ghostbusters reboot; similarly, Aykroyd said that the new movie will “recognize” the late star “in some way.”

The upcoming movie, which is directed and co-written by Jason Reitman, son of original Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman, will reportedly focus on a single mom, played by Carrie Coon, and her two kids, played by Mckenna Grace and Stranger Things star Finn Wolfard. Paul Rudd is also slated to appear in the film.
