The latest Ghostbuster adventure is slated for a July 10th, 2020 release date. Although it is a direct sequel to Ghostbusters 1 & 2, we do not have a cast list yet, therefore we do not know for sure if any of the original scientists will return to reprise their iconic roles.
It is believed that Jason Reitman will bring back Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson, and Dan Aykroyd from his father’s original two films. Perhaps we’ll even get a heartfelt moment honoring the late Harold Ramis.
Jason Reitman told Entertainment Weekly that the follow-up film was written in secret with writing partner Gil Kena while working on another project. He also said that he had his doubts the film would ever get made but surprisingly the studio gave him a green light.
It’s understandable that Jason Reitman would hesitate to pitch his film to the studio because of the reception to 2016’s Ghostbusters reboot which was an all female-led film. A film that had such a fan backlash that caused some cast members to leave social media because of all the cruel scrutiny.
Actress Leslie Jones was one of those cast members. She recently went under fire for her comments about the announced sequel when she spoke out on her Twitter account to expose the “better with men” mentality in Hollywood.
Although Reitman has not confirmed or denied an all-male cast, it’s been said that the film will be focusing on a younger, teenage cast with both genders evenly represented.

Directed by Jason Reitman from a script he co-wrote with Poltergeist remake director Gil Kena, the new Ghostbusters project will begin filming in the coming months.
The Untitled Ghostbusters Sequel is scheduled to be released in theaters in 2020.
New ‘Godzilla: King Of The Monsters’ Posters Showcase Rodan, Mothra & Ghidorah
Earlier this week, Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures dropped the newest trailer for their highly-anticipated sequel, Godzilla: King of the Monsters. The new trailer showed off some more epic action following the beloved monster along with some incredible sequences involving Rodan, Mothra and Ghidorah.
Now, Legendary has shared three brand new posters for Rodan, Mothra and Ghidorah. Given that Godzilla will be battling with these monsters in the new film, it makes sense to see them receive their own poster that boasts their size and scale as they unleash their terror against humankind.
Given that Rodan, Mothra and Ghidorah all take flight unlike Godzilla, it is going to be stunning visual spectacle to see them take the skies and swoop down as they all battle to the bitter end for what looks to be one of the most-anticipated blockbusters of 2019.
You can check out the new posters of Rodan, Mohra and Ghidorah down below by clicking "Next".
What do you think of these new posters? Are you excited to see the King of the Monsters take the reins in this new sequel? Sound off in the comments below, and be sure to continue following Heroic Hollywood for all the latest news from the MonsterVerse.
Directed by Michael Dougherty, Godzilla: King of the Monsters stars Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga, Millie Bobby Brown, Bradley Whitford, Sally Hawkins, Charles Dance, Thomas Middleditch, O’Shea Jackson Jr., with Ken Watanabe and Ziyi Zhang.
Following the global success of “Godzilla” and “Kong: Skull Island” comes the next chapter in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ cinematic MonsterVerse, an epic action adventure that pits Godzilla against some of the most popular monsters in pop culture history. The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species—thought to be mere myths—rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters will be released in theaters on May 31, 2019.
