The Ghostbusters are coming again to theaters next excursion season. Sony simply introduced that its untitled sequel to Ghostbusters: Afterlife will hit theaters on December 20, 2023. There’s no word if director Jason Reitman, son of unique Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman, will all over again be behind the camera, however he and co-creator/manufacturer Gil Kenan did announce in advance this month that the film will take area in New York City and could contain the original Ghostbusters firehouse.
That a great deal was implied by means of the cease credits of the last film, which came out in past due 2021 and grossed about $two hundred million globally. That’s now not a huge, massive spoil hit by using any way, however Ghostbusters is a large enough emblem, and the film a big enough fulfillment, for Sony to dive returned in.
And even as we will assume at least some of the preceding movie’s forged (Carrie Coon, Mckenna Grace, Finn Wolfhard) might make it again, one character who almost clearly might be returned is Ernie Hudson. His individual, Winston Zeddemore, was discovered in Afterlife to now be a hugely a success businessman and it turned into he who added the Ecto-1 again to New York and reacquired the Ghostbusters’ firehouse headquarters, that is the kick-off of some thing this tale is.
“One issue I wanted to do [with Afterlife] is ready the table for Ghostbusters as a franchise to have all varieties of films,” Reitman told io9 closing year. “I need to look all the ones movies. And we need to do something that in reality become about placing a basis and bringing the authentic 1984 story to an area in order that other tales may want to bloom. I need to peer the frightening films, the humorous movies. I need to see films involving the unique forged. I want to peer more films concerning human beings we haven’t even visible yet. I need to visit new dimensions. I want to visit other cultures and international locations. There’s such a lot of locations for Ghostbusters to go. The question is, what’s the starting area? And that’s what Afterlife is about. It’s approximately these generations making amends with each different in a manner that brings one story to close and starts offevolved some other one.”
Stepping lower back a chunk, one of the maximum exciting tales surrounding this information is the date itself. December 20, 2023 is just days before Disney had deliberate to release the following Star Wars movie, Rogue Squadron. All signs have pointed to that film being delayed and if Sony is assured sufficient to time table a similar style movie on that same weekend, the percentages are very, superb the studio is having a bet that movie will not be released that weekend.
