UPDATE: Jason Reitman’s ‘Ghostbusters’ Will Film From Late June to Early October in Calgary, Alberta
Jason Reitman’s ‘Ghostbusters’ movie, set in the universe of the 1980’s films, has another filming update. Production Weekly listed that the film will begin filming on-or-about June 25, for 15 weeks, in Calgary, Alberta. The on-location shoot in Canada will wrap around October 8.
The movie will involve a family moving back home to a small town. However, the characters from the Paul Feig reboot will not be returning, due to the film being outside of continuity. The screenplay is from Reitman (‘Juno,’ Tully’) and Gil Kenan (‘City of Ember,’ ‘Monster House’).
Sony and Reitman are also currently casting two of the young leads which include the roles of a 13-year-old boy and a 12-year-old girl. The unnamed teenage boy character is a conspiracy theorist that is really into fantasy. The pre-teen girl is a science kid that has trouble connecting with others on an emotional level, understanding feelings and not be aware how hurtful her comments can be.
Moreover, while not official, original actor Ernie Hudson has stated that the original actors may be returning.
Sony Pictures will release the film on July 10, 2020.
