The original cast of hit Nineties film franchise Ghostbusters has teamed up with Vivendi Games for a new console title to be launched next year.

According to the BBC, stars Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson have all agreed to take part and will be lending their faces and voices to the new game.

Due to be released on all major consoles in late 2008, the game will be set in the early 1990s after the events of Ghostbusters II.

Supporting cast members have also signed up to be involved, including Annie Potts who played the team's receptionist Janine.

Aykroyd and Ramis, who wrote the original films, will also pen the story for the game, which will apparently be set in New York City during a new ghoul invasion.

"We noticed we did well on Scarface and were alert for new opportunities to turn iconic film products into games in a way that is a new manifestation of the franchise," said Bruce Hack, Vivendi Games chief executive.

"Ghostbusters is unquestionably among the small number of movies in that class."
