“No Job Is Too Big. No Fee Is Too Big”
Josh Gad was able to reunite the surviving original cast of Ghostbusters via Zoom in his latest episode of Reunited Apart.
In the episode, Gad brought together father-son directing-duo Ivan and Jason Reitman along with most of the original cast including Bill Murray, Sigourney Weaver, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, and Annie Potts, all of whom will appear in the upcoming installment Ghostbusters: Afterlife.
The actors reminisced about their experiences making the 1984 blockbuster and its sequel, with Murray sporting a sailor hat to reference the first film’s Mr Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.
Here’s the episode –
When it was released, Ghostbusters remained at number one for seven weeks and wasn’t knocked off until Prince’s Purple Rain opened. It became the second highest-grossing movie of the year behind Indiana Jones And The Temple of Doom and went on to earn $576 million in America alone.
Jason Reitman is preparing for the release of the third movie in that original timeline, Ghostbusters: Afterlife, which features Igon Spangler’s daughter and grandkids moving to Oklahoma and uncovering their family’s legacy, and a connection to Gozer.
Here’s the trailer –
Reitman has hinted that he is already working on a follow-up to Afterlife, saying –
“I can’t tell you anything, but we are working on another instalment.”
“We have a little bit more time, and look, as a director, I’ve never had this opportunity to actually take a pause and breathe and look at the movie again.”
Here are some new images from the upcoming movie –
In January, Reitman tweeted that the film would be released in theatres on July 10, 2020. Of course, due to the pandemic, Sony has since confirmed the new release of Ghostbusters: Afterlife will be March 5th, 2021.
