The follow-up to ‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’ is moving into pre-production and will be directed by Gil Kenan.
Kenan was the writer and executive producer on the 2021 reboot of the franchise and will be taking over from Jason Reitman behind the camera. Reitman will still be on board as writer/producer with Kenan and Jason Blumenfeld.
The main cast of ‘Afterlife’, including Paul Rudd and Carrie Coon, are also expected to be back.
It’s an absolute honor to pick up the proton pack and step behind the camera for the next chapter of the Spengler family saga. I just wish I could go back to 1984 and tell the kid in the sixth row of the Mann Valley West that one day he was going to get to direct a Ghostbusters film,Gil Kenan
A few years ago, my father handed me the keys to Ecto-1 and together we made Ghostbusters: Afterlife. Words will never express how grateful I am to have made a film with my father by my side. It’s now time to hand those keys to my creative partner and fellow Ghostbuster Gil Kenan, a brilliant director who will keep the Spengler spirit alive. I can only hope to provide him the same producorial care and support that my father showed meJason Reitman
No details about the film have been released but ‘Afterlife’ set up a return to the classic New York firehouse.
