The New Ghostbusters Sequel Just Got A Title, And A Trailer Is Coming Soon
The title of Jason Reitman’s new Ghostbusters sequel has been confirmed, and the first official trailer is nearly upon us.
The British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) just gave the first trailer an age rating, which means you can expect it to land very soon. The listing also revealed that the film will be called Ghostbusters: Afterlife, which seems apt.
Positioned as the third film in the original series—which means it's going to be ignoring the timeline set up by Paul Feig's all-female reboot—Ghostbusters: Afterlife will see the return of original cast members Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver, and Annie Potts.
It will be led, however, by the Captain Marvel's Mckenna Grace, Stranger Things' Finn Wolfhard and The Sinner's Carrie Coon. Ant-Man's Paul Rudd is also set to star, and other cast members include Celeste O'Connor, Logan Kim, Bokeem Woodbine, and Oliver Cooper.
Filming officially wrapped on the new project back in November, with director Jason Reitman marking the occasion by sharing a photo of himself with his father Ivan Reitman (who directed the original two movies) and cast members Carrie Coon, Finn Wolfhard, Mckenna Grace and Logan Kim.
"Wrapped!" he wrote. "68 days and still smiling."
Details about the film's plot are still under wraps, but with the trailer set to be released soon, it looks like we're about to gain a better idea of what it's all about. Ghosts, presumably.
