After 68 days of production, Ghostbusters 2020 has officially wrapped production. Director Jason Reitman posted a photo from the final day on set and said: “Wrapped!
68 days and still smiling. #GB20.” Filming officially began for the film on July 12, 2019. Don’t miss the photo from that day here.
Scheduled for a July 10, 2020 release, the Sony Pictures film stars Mckenna Grace (Captain Marvel), Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things, It Chapter Two), and Carrie Coon (Widows, The Sinner) as a family. Grace has been described as the ostensible lead, with Wolfhard playing her brother and Coon her single mother.
Ant-Man and Avengers star Paul Rudd previously revealed that he had joined the Ghostbusters 2020 cast in an undisclosed role as well. Sigourney Weaver has also said that she, Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd will be back, and Reitman hinted that Ernie Hudson will also return.
Reitman has mentioned that taking on the project was a very intimidating thing, considering his father, Ivan, directed the first two films. “My father’s the greatest storyteller I know. He’s directed movies that defined my childhood. We wanted to make a love letter to the original movie.” Reitman co-wrote the screenplay with Gil Kenan.
The sequel to the Ghostbusters movies made in the 1980s will center on four teens, one set older, one set younger, with a focus on one family in particular. The new Ghostbusters movie is set in the world of the original two films.
