Set in the universe of the first two Ivan Reitman films from the 1980s, “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” tells the story of Callie, a single mom struggling to survive in Chicago with her two kids, 12-year-old Phoebe and 15-year-old Trevor. When Callie receives news of her long-estranged father’s passing – a father she never even knew – she and the kids pack up the Subaru and move to the small midwestern town of Summerville.
As the family settles into their “inheritance,” a rotting, worthless dirt farm, they soon discover that they have mysterious ties to a team of paranormal investigators called the Ghostbusters, the specter-catching team who saved New York City from supernatural destruction 35 years ago.
Directed by two-time Academy Award-nominated director Jason Reitman (“Up in the Air,” “Juno”), “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” stars Carrie Coon (“Gone Girl,” “Avengers: Infinity Wars”), Finn Wolfhard (“It,” “Stranger Things”), McKenna Grace (“Gifted,” “I, Tonya”), Paul Rudd (“Ant-Man,” “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy”), Sigourney Weaver (“Ghostbusters” “Avatar”), Bill Murray (“Ghostbusters,” “Lost in Translation”), Dan Aykroyd (“Ghostbusters,” “Driving Miss Daisy”), Ernie Hudson (“Ghostbusters,” “Grace and Frankie”), Annie Potts (“Ghostbusters,” “Toy Story 4”), and Logan Kim (“Home Movie: The Princess Bride”).
The screenplay is by Jason Reitman and Gil Kenan (“Monster House,” “Poltergeist”) and produced by Ivan Reitman (“Ghostbusters,” “Up in the Air”).
