Ghostbusters 2020 has officially started production. Jason Reitman shared a new picture of the deteriorating Ecto-1 and asked fans if they were ready to “get rolling.” Ghostbusters fans are definitely ready to get rolling since the sequel has been talked about so much lately. Reitman is taking over the directing duties this time around from his father and original star Dan Aykroyd loves the script that the director wrote. It’s only a matter of time before the set photos start to come in, hopefully reuniting Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson, and Aykroyd.
Finn Wolfhard recently spoke a little about Ghostbusters 2020 and revealed they had already started production. The Stranger Things star was asked whether or not he and his on-screen mom, Carrie Coon, had time to build rapport before shooting began. Wolfhard responded by saying, “We’re spending more time now, because we just started, but I love her so much. She’s been amazing so far.” Taking this information with Jason Reitman’s photo of the dilapidated Ecto-1 gives us everything we need to know.
When it came time to audition for Ghostbusters 2020, Finn Wolfhard did not think he would get the part for reasons Stranger Things fans will probably understand. He originally didn’t think it was going to happen because he had already dressed like a Ghostbuster on the hit show. Wolfhard thought, “Jason Reitman is probably not even going to look at my tape because I’ve already done it in Stranger Things.” However, it looks like everything worked out in the end for the young actor, who seems to be just about everywhere these days.

As for how Ghostbusters 2020 is going to be, that is unclear at this time. Jason Reitman and crew are keeping everything under wraps. With that being said, Reitman has teased the use of old and unused footage from the original Ghostbusters movie, strongly hinting we’ll get to see Harold Ramis involved in some way. Sigourney Weaver has confirmed she will be returning and also said the rest of the original cast was returning with her. Additionally, Annie Potts has confirmed she too will be back. Ernie Hudson recently revealed he does not yet have a deal in place to take part in the highly anticipated sequel.
Now that production has finally started on Ghostbusters 2020, we should get some more updates about the cast and new additions. Ernie Hudson, Dan Aykroyd, and Bill Murray will more than likely all be on board, but a lot of hardcore fans are hoping they’ll be able to persuade Rick Moranis to come back. The actor has taken a long break from starring in any big screen projects and declined to take part in the Ghostbusters 2016 reboot. Jason Reitman might be able to pull it off with the story he has crafted. You can check out the production start announcement for Ghostbusters 2020 below, thanks to Jason Reitman’s Instagram account.
