Who are you going to call? Bill Murray, Sigourney Weaver and Dan Aykroyd have ‘reunited for the next Ghostbusters movie’ set in London

The original Ghostbusters stars – Bill Murray, Sigourney Weaver and Dan Aykroyd – will reprise their iconic roles in the next film in the legendary franchise.

The stars of the 1984 classic are reportedly set to appear in the Ghostbusters: Afterlife sequel, with filmmakers planning to move the action from New York to London.

A source told The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre column: ‘The studio bosses are taking a classic franchise, relocating it, but keeping the magic of the original. It will be great.’

Ghostbusters has always been synonymous with New York, but to mix things up, the team thought other major cities with haunted histories were added this time.

London is perfect. It gives so much freedom to look back at classic landmarks and British history, but still in an urban setting,” was shared.

“The plans look really cool and it wasn’t hard to get the original stars interested. They all love the films and look back on them fondly.’

The news comes a month after it was announced that Gil Kenan will direct the sequel, with the Ghostbusters Afterlife filmmaker playing a writer-producer role.

Gil said, “It is an absolute honor to pick up the proton pack and step behind the camera for the next chapter of the Spengler family saga.

“I wish I could go back to 1984 and tell the kid on the sixth row of Mann Valley West that one day he’d be directing a Ghostbusters movie.”

Jason – the son of the late Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman – said, “A few years ago my dad gave me the keys to Ecto-1, and together we made Ghostbusters: Afterlife.”

In June, Sony announced that the new Ghostbusters movie will hit theaters on December 20, 2023, as reported by TUSEN.

The 2021 film was a sequel to the original Ghostbusters film (1984).

There was also a poorly received Ghostbusters II released in 1989.

2016’s Ghostbusters starring Kristin Wiig, Leslie Jones, Melissa McCarthy and Kate McKinnon was a reboot of the original film.

The upcoming film is expected to pay homage to the 1984 film as well as continue the storyline of the series.
