The Jason Reitman-directed Ghostbusters 3, tentatively titled Ghostbusters 2020 and referred to as “GB20,” will reportedly be titled Ghostbusters: Afterlife, according to Italian movie site BadTaste.It.
Recently, it was announced that the film is going to be a follow-up of the events of Ghostbusters and its sequel Ghostbusters II. On top of that, it was stated that the film isn’t going to have any connection with that female-led Ghostbusters reboot from Paul Feig.
Sony Pictures has yet to confirm the title of its sequel to Ivan Reitman’s Ghostbusters and its 1989 followup Ghostbusters II.
Reitman earlier revealed his film unearthed unused footage from the first film to be included in GB20, where Paul Rudd stars as seismologist and part-time summer school teacher drawn to a small town by mysterious earthquakes that are expected to be supernatural in nature.
When confirming the return of the original surviving Ghostbusters cast in the new movie, producer Dan Aykroyd said Reitman penned “a beautiful, heartfelt script that takes the real DNA from the first two movies and transfers that directly to the third, the next generation. It hands the legacy off to a new generation of stars, and players, and actors, and characters.”
GB20 boasts a cast of “terrific young actors” as well as a “great story” and a “great setting,” Aykroyd said on The Greg Hill Show, where Aykroyd’s description of the film could support the rumored “Afterlife” title.
Starring Mckenna Grace, Finn Wolfhard, Carrie Coon, Celeste O’Connor, Logan Kim, Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Sigourney Weaver, Annie Potts, Ernie Hudson and Paul Rudd, GB20 opens July 10, 2020.
