Early today Sony Pictures officially announced James Reitman’s upcoming Ghostbusters 2020 will now and forever be known as Ghostbusters: Afterlife, but that’s not all. In addition to the new title (which we love), Sony also released a handful of new images, the official movie poster, and that the first trailer will premiere this coming Monday.
Written by Jason Reitman and Gil Kenan, Ghostbusters: Afterlife stars Finn Wolfhard, Mckenna Grace, Carrie Coon, and the ageless Paul Rudd. The story follows a single mother and her two children as they attempt to acclimate to their new life in Oklahoma after inheriting property from unknown relatives. The family soon comes to the realization that their family is related to original Ghostbusters, a ghost-fighting team that has become somewhat of a myth since the events of the “Manhattan Crossrip of 1984.” The film will also feature original cast members Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver, and Annie Potts, all of which will be reprising their famous roles.
