Hey, have you heard about the upcoming Ghostbusters film? It’s called Ghostbusters: Afterlife and it’s going to be a sequel to the first Ghostbusters movie from way back in 1984. The cast of Ghostbusters: Afterlife sequel recently expanded, and guess what? A few well-known actors! Kumail Nanjiani, Patton Oswalt, James Acaster, and Emily Alyn Lind will all appear in the film, along with some of the original cast members like Finn Wolfhard, Paul Rudd, and Ernie Hudson, according to Deadline. They’re really pulling out the stops for this one, I mean, how cool is that?
With roles as Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars series and the recent Marvel film Eternals, Kumail Nanjiani is no stranger to the world of superheroes. The Boys, The Simpsons, Community, and Welcome to Chippendales on Hulu are just a few of the highly regarded TV programs he has appeared in. But The Big Sick, a romantic comedy that was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, is probably where he gained the most notoriety. And get this: he will also produce and star in Homeland Elegies, a new FX series based on a popular book.
Another notable actor they included in the cast is Patton Oswalt. He also appeared in Eternals and had a recurring part on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. But he’s also appeared in a ton of other things, including Star Trek: Picard, The Goldbergs, The King of Queens, The Boys, and The Sandman. A comedy special called We All Scream was also recently directed by him for Netflix. The writer and star of the franchise, Dan Aykroyd, has several sequels planned for the Ghostbusters franchise. Gil Kenan, who also writes and directs, began working on its development last year.
A reference to the famous setting from the first films can be seen in the working title of the film, “Firehouse.”. Furthermore, it will reportedly take place in New York City, just like the first film. The movie, which began production in March, will be released on December 20th, according to a recent announcement. Not sure about you, but I’m really interested in seeing what they come up with. One of my all-time favorite films is Ghostbusters, so it will be interesting to watch a new generation of actors take on the roles. All in all, Ghostbusters: Afterlife appears to be a pretty epic film. I think it’s safe to say that fans of the original movies will be pleased with this film, especially with a cast like that and a plot that promises to return the franchise to its roots. I am, I am!
