It looks like fans received’t need to wait long for the sequel to 2021’s Ghostbusters: Afterlife. Director Jason Reitman and creator Gil Kenan showed that a sequel changed into in the works on Ghostbusters Day on June 8, and now Variety (opens in new tab) reviews that the rebooted franchise’s sophomore film will fly into theaters on December 20, 2023.
It wasn’t until November 2021 that Afterlife subsequently debuted after several pandemic-related delays. Even with fewer people flocking to theaters, the film pulled in over $2 hundred million international, enough to present the franchise the green mild to start again up again.
Afterlife became toplined by means of Paul Rudd (Ant-Man) and Carrie Coon (The Gilded Age), however it was the movie’s more youthful stars who breathed life into the film. Mckenna Grace (The Haunting of Hill House) and Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things) played siblings Phoebe and Trevor. They didn’t recognise their grandfather Egon Spengler (Harold Ramis) became a Ghostbuster once they moved into his residence after he died, but a series of paranormal activities lead them on the adventure of a life-time, one which in the end brings the beyond and present on a collision path.
Details approximately the sequel and its solid have been understandably scarce however we are able to surmise that the story is set to go back to the Ghostbusters’ roots in New York based totally on what occurred on the quit of Afterlife.
Winston Zeddemore (Ernie Hudson) delivered Ecto 1 from Egon’s farmhouse again to the fireplace station that housed the crew of supernatural investigators in the original films. Before the stop credit scene faded out, we were handled to a take a look at the containment unit — the device that Egon (Harold Ramis) and Ray (Dan Ackroyd) built to include captured ghosts — abruptly coming returned to existence.
Afterlife director Jason Reitman has been vocal in his praise for the fan response to the 2021 film that delivered a new technology of fans to the fold. His father, Ivan, produced and directed the primary Ghostbusters films in addition to growing the script. He served as Afterlife’s producer at the same time as his son sat inside the director’s chair.
The Afterlife press excursion become something to behold as father and son celebrated the Ghostbusters legacy via keeping it inside the circle of relatives. The senior Reitman passed away all at once in February 2022, however just because the movie can pay tribute to Ramis, Ivan Reitman’s legacy will live on through as his son launches the franchise into state-of-the-art directions, including a new lively collection being developed for Netflix.
