Very little is currently known about what's going down in Ghostbusters 2020, but the cast, the early teasers and the franchise's enduring legacy are more than enough to get excited about. Here's what's in store.
Unusual for a project of such size, things came together very quickly for Ghostbusters 2020. In January 2019, the first reports of Jason Reitman's involvement in a new Ghostbusters film hit the headlines, followed the very next day by a heavily nostalgic teaser trailer for the movie. Then, before the end of the month, fans had a release date to look forward to. Reitman confirmed via his Twitter account that the film will hit theaters July 10th 2020, right in the prime of the summer movie release season.
Reitman has noted that the idea for his Ghostbusters project began with the image of a 12-year-old girl carrying a proton pack, and that image ultimately expanded to include a whole family. Now, as the film draws closer, we're getting a sense of what that family looks like - thanks to its all-star cast.
The 12-year-old in question will be played by Mckenna Grace, a rising young talent who's appeared in everything from Captain Marvel to the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina to I, Tonya - and that's just in the last couple of years. Presumably playing Grace's mother in the film is Carrie Coon, who has appeared in TV series such as Fargo and The Leftovers as well as films such as Gone Girl and Avengers: Infinity War.
