Ghostbusters is BACK!
2021’s Ghostbusters: Afterlife was a hugely successful reboot and introduced the iconic 80s franchise to a new generation. Much to the delight of fans, it reunited the original Ghostbusters stars, including Bill Murray, from the iconic 80s original films
Afterlife also featured a talented new cast, including Handmaid’s Tale star Mckenna Grace and Finn Wolfhard of Stranger Things.
Afterlife grossed $200m (£160m) at the global box office, which is a decent amount of money and maybe a sequel seem an obvious decision.
Original Ghostbusters sequel star Kurt Fuller addressed a potential return in Ghostbusters: Afterlife 2, with the new film set to return to New York.
His character Jack Hardemeyer worked as the aide to the New York City mayor and made several attempts at thwarting the Ghostbusters’ efforts to combat Vigo the Carpathian’s attempt to take over the city and the world!
Also reports online are stating that this film is bringing the story back to NYC back to the original firehouse and are hinting that it may be more of a traditional Ghostbusters film.
