‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’ Sequel to Release in 2023


Sony Pictures has confirmed that the sequel to Ghostbusters: Afterlife will be releasing next year on December 20, 2023.

Jason Reitman will be returning as director and will co-write the screenplay with Gil Kenan, who also collaborated on Afterlife. No details on the cast has been given, but it is likely expected that Mckenna Grace, Carrie Coon, Finn Wolfhard, and Paul Rudd return alongside some of the original cast.

Reitman had previously teased the sequel in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter: “At the end of Ghostbusters: Afterlife, the Ecto-1 is driving into Manhattan, returning to its home. And before anyone ever heard the title Afterlife, we called it Rust City. Which would not have made sense to anyone until they saw the movie. The code name for the next movie is Firehouse.”

Firehouse is definitely a callback to the Ghostbusters HQ, which means that the original cast is coming back. That being said, Bill Murray is currently embroiled in controversy surrounding his behavior on the set of Aziz Ansari‘s Being Mortal. Production was shut down in April when a complaint was received to Searchlight Pictures regarding Murray’s conduct on set.
