Ghostbusters: Afterlife is a film about ghosts. You can see it in theaters starting in 2021. Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver, and Annie Potts are in the movie. It is a sequel to two other movies that my dad made. There are 3 people in this story. One is a mom. There are 2 children, too. They moved to a small town in Oklahoma. They found out about their connection to the original Ghostbusters and their grandfather’s secret legacy. It happened 30 years after the second film event.
A third Ghostbusters film has been in development for a long time. Dan Aykroyd helped make the first two movies, but Bill Murray refused to do the movie. In 2014, the actor Harold Ramis died. So Sony made a new film for him. The film was not very successful at the box office. So in 2016, Reitman began to make another sequel to the original films with another actor. New cast members were announced in July of 2019. The original cast signed on two months later. Filming took place from July to October of 2019.

What is the plot of Ghostbusters: Afterlife?
After being evicted from their home, a single mother and her two children moved into a farmhouse in Summerville, Oklahoma. The house was left to them by their late grandfather. Some people think that strange things are happening in an old mine. The mine was once owned by someone who is rumored to be part of the occult. But no one knows for sure.
The children found out about the history of their grandfather. They did this by talking to the original Ghostbusters. People don’t know much about them, except for those who are fans of them.

What are the details related to production, marketing, and filming?
To stay true to the first Ghostbusters movie, director Ivan Reitman and the production crew reviewed all of the designs of the ghosts and other supernatural creatures from the original film. They looked at how everyone was different. Muncher is like Slimer, but it is a ghost. People saw Slimer as the firehouse’s pet. The original Slimer was angry and scary. We wanted to make Muncher like that too.
We are filming a movie with “Rust City” as the working title. We started filming on July 12th in Calgary, Alberta, and nearby areas.
