Ghostbusters: Afterlife Release Date & Updates

In 2021 we’ll get a new film in the Ghostbusters franchise nearly four decades after the original and five years after the controversial remake.

At the beginning of 2019, the movie was announced to everyone and revealed as a family affair everywhere. The latest project, which will be directly followed by Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II, will be led by Jason Reitman, son of original director Ivan Reitman, and the main focus will be a mother and two children.

So, let’s take a peek at the next 4th Ghostbusters live-action instalment and look into the shop. One thing is clear: in the neighbourhood, there is something odd.

Release Date

At the very beginning, we were given a great deal of publicity by the new project Ghostbusters as the movie appeared to be a real film concept rather than just a pipe dream of only a few days.

In reality, as Reitman developed his writing, the film took shape behind the scenes, and there was a lot under the surface, which we didn’t see. Yet by the time Reitman and the organization were able to advertise, they started to promote.

In January 2019, a nostalgic teaser trailer was produced in the first reports about Reitman’s involvement in a new Ghostbusters movie, and he worked hard to capture all of the Ghostbuster’s aesthetics which fans love a lot.

Then we even heard about the release date before the month was out. In January, Reitman reported via his Twitter account that the film would be released in theatres by July 10, 2020. However, it seems due to the coronavirus pandemic, things will be getting delayed.

Of course, the entire summer film season has increased significantly, and Sony has confirmed a date for the new release of the Afterlife before March 2020: March 5, 2021.


In talking about his new film Ghostbusters, Reitman noted that a 12-year-old girl with a proton pack had begun to think of the film and that the image ultimately widened to include a whole family. Now, as the movie starts, thanks to its all-star cast, we get a sense of what the family looks like.

This 12-year-old will play Mckenna Grace, a young talent who has been seen in all of the last few years, from Captain Marvel to Sabrina’s weird adventures to the “Haunting of Hill House.”

Reitman turned to Carrie Coon, one of her generation’s most talented actors who has displayed her talents on TV series like Fargo and The Retails and movies like Gone Girl and Avengers: Infinity War, to play Grace ‘s apparent mother in the film.

In June, we learned that Paul Rudd, a superstar comedy, had joined the cast as well.
