If you haven’t watched the first trailer for Ghostbusters: Afterlife stop reading and go watch it. The film is set 30 years after the original duology and will see the return of original cast members Bill Murray, Sigourney Weaver, Dan Aykroyd, Annie Potts, and Ernie Hudson.
Vanity Fair recently visited the set of Ghostbusters: Afterlife and got a chance to speak with Murray. Murray talked about the script and how it deals with the loss of Harold Ramis’s Egon:
“Well, we are a man down. That’s the deal. And that’s the story we’re telling, that’s the story they’ve written. …The script is good. It’s got lots of emotion in it. It’s got lots of family in it, with through lines that are really interesting. It’s gonna work.”
After years of refusing to appear in a Ghostbusters III unless the script was good, it’s nice to hear Murray say positive things about Afterlife. The family connection was teased a lot in the first trailer, so I’m glad it will be seen throughout the film. I’m interested in seeing how Afterlife uses the original cast of characters. Will they just appear at Egon’s funeral at the beginning of the film, or will they show up to lend a hand at the film’s climax? Time will tell.
Ghostbusters: Afterlife hit theaters July 10, 2020.
