‘Ghostbusters’ 2020 Latest Cast News

There’s something strange in the neighborhood but it’s definitely not the lead actors of director Jason Reitman‘s Ghostbusters film, currently titled Ghostbusters 2020.

Reitman shared the photo on Twitter, giving fans the first official look at leads McKenna GraceFinn Wolfhard, and Carrie Coon in costume.

“The family’s all here,” Reitman captioned the photo, which featured himself, Grace, Wolfhard, Coon, and his father, director Ivan Reitman. Ivan previously directed 1984’s Ghostbusters and the 1989 sequel Ghostbusters II. Ivan is a producer on Ghostbusters 2020 but it’s unclear if he’ll be on set the entire time or if he was just present for the day the photo was taken.

Noticeably absent from the photo is Paul Rudd, who recently confirmed his casting on social media. There are also no signs of original Ghostbusters cast members Sigourney WeaverDan AykroydBill Murray, or Annie Potts, all of whom will be returning for the film in some capacity. It may not be clear how much screentime the original cast will have as they reprise their roles for Ghostbusters 2020 but we should prepare for their involvement to be a huge selling point when trailers and posters marketing the film eventually come out.

Either way, it’s definitely a treat to get our first, true-blue look at the upcoming Ghostbusters film. Sure, there’s no ghosts, slime, or a giant Stay-Puft character stomping around set but this is by no means a lackluster photo. Coon and Grace are nearly unrecognizable in the hair and make-up for their characters (not that that’s a bad thing!). Coon, who plays the mother of Grace and Wolfhard’s characters, has gone blonde for the role and is sporting some solid mom jeans. Meanwhile, Grace is sporting a bobbed haircut, round-framed glasses, and overalls — a very utilitarian look for a teenager. We can really get a good vibe from Wolfhard’s costume since he’s sitting behind Grace but chances are good he’s wearing the heck out of it.

In a recent interview, Reitman said the film will blend horror with comedy and a “love letter to the original movie.”

He added: “This character came to me. She was a 12 year old girl. I didn’t know who she was or why she popped into my head, but I saw her with a proton pack in her hand. And I wrote this story. This story began to form over many years actually. It started with a girl and all of a sudden it was a family. And eventually I knew this was a movie that I needed to make.”

A new plot synopsis described it as “a sequel to the original classic” which “centres on a family that moves back home to a small town where they learn more about who they are.” Further plot details are being kept under wraps.

Filming on Ghostbusters 2020 kicked off in June in Calgary, a city in Alberta, Canada. The filming coincided with news that the film’s action will primarily take place away from New York City and centre around a small town.
