Bill Murray Returns To New Ghostbusters To Help The New Generation

Ghostbusters: Afterlife revived the original Ivan Reitman film continuity with Egon Spengler’s (the late Harold Ramis) grandchildren taking over the proton packs and becoming the next generation of ‘busters–with some adult supervision by Mr. Grooberson (Paul Rudd).

While Jason Reitman directed Afterlife, he’s handing the reins to Gil Kenan (who wrote Afterlife and the upcoming sequel Frozen Empire with Reitman) and now begins the new chapter in Ghostbusters stories.

Talking with Empire Magazine, Kenan talked about bringing the new Ghostbusters into a post-Gozerian world, and confirmed that Dan Akroyd, Ernie Hudson, and Bill Murray will return once again as Ray Stantz, Winston Zeddmore, and Peter Venkman. Empire also posted an exclusive behind-the-scenes photo of Murray and Rudd together.

“I remember there was a moment halfway through the first morning of directing one of the big scenes where I looked at the monitor, and just caught myself with the biggest grin ever,” Kenan said. “Finally, it dawned on me that I was calling ‘Action!’ and ‘Cut!’ on some of my very favorite characters in movies, working on a big cinematic scale on something that I really cared about. I try to hold on to that feeling. I still have it now, finishing the film.”

Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire is scheduled to hit theaters March 29, 2024.
