First Photo for ‘Ghostbusters 2020’ Released as Filming Begins

Director Jason Reitman took to his Instagram to officially announce the commencement of filming on Sony’s Ghostbusters 2020 in Alberta, Canada with a first look photo featuring stars Mckenna Grace, Finn Wolfhard and Carrie Coon in character. Reitman appears also in the photo, alongside his father Ivan Reitman who directed the first two Ghostbusters films.

It seems Grace’s familiar specs tease a lineage with Egon Spengler.

Grace, known also for her roles in Captain Marvel and Annbelle Comes Home, will star in the 2020 film along with Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things and 2017’s IT). Carrie Coon (The Leftovers) will play their mother. Sigourney Weaver recently confirmed that she and the original cast were reprising their roles for the sequel.

Although official plot details have not been released, the story is set in the world created in the first two Ghostbusters films.

Ghostbusters 2020 is set to release in theaters on July 10, 2020.

Since Mark was four years old he has always loved the horror genre, even when his mother would be a good parent and not let him watch such films. It was when he would sneak into the Horror section at the video store called Tommy K's that he would see all of the VHS covers of classics like Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street. During his time as a journalism major and news staff writer at Southern CT State University, he had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren before a seminar in 2009 at the Lyman Center on campus.
