“Ghostbusters” has been a beloved part of pop culture since it first came out. Its spooky adventures and funny moments have made it a fan favourite. As fans eagerly wait for the next movie, “Ghostbusters 4” theories and speculations have been going around. In this article, we explore the release date of “Ghostbusters 4” and the latest updates surrounding the highly anticipated supernatural comedy.
When Will Ghostbusters 4 Come Out?
According to Wikipedia, the movie will be in theatres on March 29, 2024. The much-anticipated sequel will not come out until Easter 2024 instead of Christmas 2023. This is because the SAG-AFTRA strike is affecting a lot of movie release plans.
The movie was confirmed at CinemaCon 2022, and shooting ended in July 2023. But actors are still needed in the post-production phase, which can include things like ADR (rerecording lines of speech) or reshooting certain scenes.
On March 20, 2023, Sony tweeted a picture of Reitman on set to mark the start of filming. Ernie Hudson said that the second Ghostbusters movie was filmed in the UK, and in July 2023, he stated that filming was done.
Gil Kenan, who helped write Ghostbusters: Afterlife, will direct the movie, and Reitman will be in charge of making it. Since Ivan Reitman died in February 2022, this is the first Ghostbusters movie that he won’t be making.
Who Will Be in Ghostbusters 4?
The Spenglers, played by Finn Wolfhard, McKenna Grace, and Carrie Coon, will be back in Ghostbusters 4, and they won’t be the only ones. Paul Rudd will take a break from saving the MCU to bust ghosts.
The list of cast members in Ghostbusters 4 is as follows:
- Finn Wolfhard as Trevor Spengler
- Mckenna Grace as Phoebe Spengler
- Celeste O’Connor as Lucky Domingo
- William Atherton as Walter Peck
- Carrie Coon as Callie Spengler
- Paul Rudd as Gary Grooberson
- Ernie Hudson as Dr. Winston Zeddemore
- Kumail Nanjiani
- Patton Oswalt
- James Acaster
- Emily Alyn Lind
What Will Happen in Ghostbusters 4?
The official Ghostbusters Twitter account said that Ghostbusters 4 would be the “next chapter in the Spengler family story.” This seems to confirm that the plot will be about Phoebe, Trevor, and the rest of the new generation.
In our conversation with Jason Reitman, he said, “I think it’s no secret that my father and I would love for the Ghostbusters mythology to keep growing from Afterlife.” He also said, “We wanted to make a movie that would set the stage for all kinds of Ghostbusters movies.”
The Ghostbusters cast was shown at CinemaCon 2023 wearing new outfits and living in the Ghostbusters Firehouse. This shows that the movie will take place in New York City. Let’s hope that Gozer hasn’t made up his mind to move back to New York City.
Reitman has also given away another hint. In an interview with Uproxx, he said that there were parts of Afterlife’s story that didn’t go anywhere, but that could be used in a sequel.
“I wish we could talk about that [Egon’s decision to repaint the Ecto-1 with the Ghostbusters II name]. Well, I’m just saying that’s not the story of this movie, and we’re working on other things,” he said.
