Ghostbusters fans were given a gift from Jason Reitman today. The director delivered the first Ghostbusters: Afterlife trailer and fans should be pretty excited. It’s been a long time coming for the often-talked about the sequel, and for a while, it didn’t look like it was going to happen at all. With that being said, Reitman never saw himself taking on the franchise that his father first helmed in the mid-80s, but he ended up having a vision and chasing it. Now, Reitman wants to deliver a love letter to Ghostbusters fans from all over the world.
Before the trailer arrived, we learned that the new Ghostbusters movie title is officially Ghostbusters: Afterlife. As for Jason Reitman’s original vision, he saw a young girl with a proton pack in her hand. From there, the ideas started flowing and went from a lone girl to a family. Said a family is portrayed by Carrie Coon, Finn Wolfhard, and Mckenna Grace in Ghostbusters: Aftermath. Paul Rudd is also on board as a teacher in a small town and it is believed he will have a pretty sizable part. However, that has not been confirmed at this time.
Ghostbusters: Afterlife is also set to star the original Ghostbusters cast, which includes Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver, and Annie Potts, who are all returning from the original franchise. It is believed that Jason Reitman will be using old footage of Harold Ramis in some form or fashion. The director recently revealed there was a lot of footage leftover from the first movie and teased it could be used to pay tribute to the late actor.
