Jason Reitman Announces the Core Cast of His ‘#Ghostbusters’ Revival | #GB20

The leading cast of the new Ghostbusters movie has been confirmed! Carrie Coon (Fargo, Avengers: Infinity War), Mckenna Grace (Young Sheldon, Annabelle Comes Home, Fuller House), and Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things) will make up the family unit at the core of this movie. All three were previously rumored to have been in talks.

Jason Reitman, the son of Ivan Reitman, who directed the first two Ghostbusters movies, is helming this new film, which is a sequel, with the first two movies remaining in canon, bypassing Paul Feig‘s 2016 reboot. Reitman posted a composite picture on Twitter with the caption “Meet the family” with the hashtag #GB20.

While the original Ghostbusters movies were very New York-centric, reportedly, the film focuses on a single mother and her two young teenagers who move to a small town, where they begin unearthing strange secrets.

Obviously, Coon will play the mother, with Grace and Wolfhard as the kids. In the original casting descriptions, it listed that the girl would be 13, while the boy would be 12, but obviously that has changed. Grace plays a 10-year-old in the upcoming Annabelle Comes Home, but she is currently 12. Wolfhard is 16.

Coon was last seen on the USA series The Sinner and will star opposite Jude Law in The Nest. Grace can currently be seen as young Carol Danvers in Captain Marvel and will star in Annabelle Comes Home in June. Wolfhard will be back in Stranger Things 3 on July 4, and in ‘It: Chapter 2’ on September 6.

There is a *RUMOR* that Coon’s character will be the daughter of an original Ghostbuster, but that is strictly a *RUMOR*. If it turns out to be true, cool, but don’t make any bets just yet.

Ghostbusters 3 (Rust City) is scheduled to be released in theaters on July 10, 2020, so expect production to begin soon. What do you think of these plans so far?

Update (9/4) - How secret is the new Ghostbusters film? Well, according to Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard, he didn’t even know what he was auditioning for. In a new interview with MTV, Wolfhard said:

“It’s all secret. It’s like completely, ya know — I didn’t even know what I was auditioning for when I auditioned for it.”
