Jason Reitman’s Ghostbusters 3 has found two of its leads in Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard and Carrie Coon.
Back in January, it was announced that a new Ghostbusters movie is on the way, only rather than being a sequel to the 2016 reboot, it will be set in the same continuity as the first two films. Naturally there have been questions about whether any of the original Ghostbusters will appear in this new movie, but it also goes without saying that there will also be plenty of new characters introduced.
A new report from Variety states that Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard and The Leftovers’ Carrie Coon are in talks to join the cast. Coon is reportedly a single mother whose family is at the center of the story, with Wolfhard playing her son. Elsewhere, EW reports that the film is not going to center around teenagers as previously believed, and it will be the entire family (led by Coon and Wolfhard) who lead this next Ghostbusters entry.
While it is currently unknown who of the surviving core Ghostbusters cast (Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver, Annie Potts, Rick Moranis) will return, it has been reported that Reitman is looking to cast four teen actors (two boys and two girls) in lead roles to tackle supernatural baddies.
The new Ghostbusters will drop in theaters on July 10, 2020.
