Jason Reitman‘s Ghostbusters: Afterlife is the official follow-up to 1989’s Ghostbusters II film. Ghostbusters: Afterlife was set to release in theaters on July 10, 2020 but was pushed back to March 5, 2021 because of Covid-19.
Fans will be happy to hear that during Josh Gad‘s Reunited Apart Reitman spoke on his upcoming Ghostbusters film. Although he didn’t reveal any major story details, he did mention that he has a lot of time to himself & is currently editing the upcoming film. However, Reitman did reveal that he is working on a sequel to Afterlife!
“I can’t tell you anything, but we are working on another installment. We have a little bit more time, and look, as a director, I’ve never had this opportunity to actually take a pause and breathe and look at the movie again.”
After being evicted from their home, two children and their single mother move to a farm in Summerville, Oklahoma, inherited from their late grandfather. When the town experiences a series of unexplained earthquakes, the children discover their family’s link to the original Ghostbusters, who have become something of a myth as many have long-since forgotten the events of the “Manhattan Crossrip of 1984”, and the secret legacy that their grandfather left behind.
Ghostbusters: Afterlife stars Carrie Coon, Finn Wolfhard, Mckenna Grace, & Paul Rudd, while Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver, & Annie Potts reprise their roles from the original films.
