Check out an official Ghostbusters: Afterlife Featurette starring Stranger Things’ Finn Wolfhard!
From father to son, the proton pack is being passed to the next generation of Ghostbusters in this Summer’s highly anticipated Ghostbusters: Afterlife. Ivan Reitman is producing with his son Jason Reitman to deliver the next Ghostbusters adventure fans have really been waiting for.
The film stars Carrie Coon, Finn Wolfhard, Mckenna Grace, and Paul Rudd, while Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver, and Annie Potts reprise their roles from the original films. It is the sequel to Ghostbusters (1984) and Ghostbusters II (1989) and the fourth film overall in the Ghostbusters franchise.
A third Ghostbusters film had been in various stages of development since Ghostbusters II released in 1989, stalling as Murray refused to commit to the project. After the death of cast member Harold Ramis in 2014, Sony instead produced a reboot released in 2016. The film performed poorly at the box office, and Reitman began developing a sequel to the original films. The new cast members were announced by July 2019, while the original cast signed on two months later. Filming took place from July to October 2019.
Ghostbusters: Afterlife is scheduled to be released in the United States on November 11, 2021, after being delayed three times from an original July 2020 date due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The film will be released in RealD 3D, IMAX and Dolby Cinema.
