No word yet on what the new Ghostbusters film will be about, but there are rumors.
According to Variety, “the story will be an extension of the original Ghostbusters and focus on a single mom and her family, with Coon playing the mom and Wolfhard playing her son. It’s unknown how exactly it connects to the original Ghostbusters series. Sigourney Weaver is also rumored to return as Dana Barrett.”
Ivan Reitman is also set to produce the film. The studio has been working on this idea for a while. They have been trying to keep it secret, using a codename “Rust City.” The good news? An official teaser trailer has been released and it is making us excited for this new film! Watch it below!
Of course, nothing can beat the original, but we hope the new Ghostbusters is great too! The original Ghostbusters film was released in 1984 and “stars Bill Murray, Aykroyd, and Ramis as Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz and Egon Spengler, eccentric parapsychologists who start a ghost-catching business in New York City. Sigourney Weaver and Rick Moranis co-star as their client Dana Barrett and her neighbor Louis Tully.”
