The Ghostbusters 2020 cast is all smiles after busting ghosts for 68 days. Filming just wrapped on the family oriented sequel to the first two Ghostbusters movies. Jason Reitman is directing from a script he co-wrote, with his father Ivan Reitman -- who directed Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II -- as producer.
Ghostbusters 2020 filming began in July under the working title "Rust City" and you can see that it just finished this week in October 2019:
As Jason Reitman says, 68 days and still smiling. Bustin' makes 'em feel GOOD. You can see Ivan Reitman to the far left in the photo, and clockwise from there we have newcomer Logan Kim at the bottom, back up to Stranger Things' Finn Wolfhard, then my eternal The Leftovers queen Carrie Coon, an almost unrecognizable Mckenna Grace, and director Jason Reitman himself at the far right.
As far as we know, Ghostbusters 2020 will focus on two sets of teens -- one set older, and one younger. Carrie Coon is meant to play a single mother, with Mckenna Grace and Finn Wolfhard as her kids. It's possible Logan Kim and another announced cast member, Celeste O’Connor, are playing the other young and older teens.
Captain Marvel's Mckenna Grace reportedly has a lead role, and when we saw the first photos of her new look for Ghostbusters 2020, it immediately got fans thinking her character might be related to Egon Spengler. As you probably know, we lost Ghostbusters' Egon actor Harold Ramis in 2014.
Dan Aykroyd confirmed Ghostbusters 2020 follows "the actual descendants of the original Ghostbusters." So even though no characters have been confirmed, I have a hard time believing Mckenna Grace isn't going to star in this as an adorable mini Spengler. If Finn Wolfhard is her brother, then maybe they are Egon's kids or grandkids?
Ghostbusters 2020 has plenty of time to add supernatural goodness in VFX since the movie isn't scheduled to hit theaters until this coming summer, July 10, 2020. We're still on standby for more confirmed information about the movie, and of course the first trailer.
