One of the more peculiar details about Jason Reitman’s upcoming Ghostbusters sequel is what exactly the film’s title will end up being. While some fans continue to refer to it as Ghostbusters 3, others have found it easier to sum it up as Ghostbusters 2020. But now it looks like the official title for the new Ghostbusters continuation has finally leaked.
According to an Italian film news site, the new title for the upcoming Ghostbusters film actually sound like a very interesting one. The title is Ghostbusters: Afterlife. Of course, there aren’t any official sources through the site so for now it should be taken only as a rumor.
Nevertheless, if the title was official, it could very easily be hinting at some plot points for the new movie. It’s also a fun title to consider how the new movie is set to revive the original Ghostbusters franchise and bypass the 2016 remake. The new movie really is an Afterlife of sorts, guiding the Ghostbusters franchise on a new path. Let’s hope we learn more as the release date approaches.
While we don’t know much about the plot for the new movie, it has been revealed that the official cast including Bill Murray will be returning. As for Dan Aykroyd’s thoughts on the new film…
“Jason Reitman wrote 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.”
The upcoming 2020 Ghostbusters film will be hitting theaters on July 10, 2020.
