Jason Reitman’s upcoming sequel to 1984’s Ghostbusters might feature a much younger cast then its predecessors.
In a shocking teaser released earlier this week, it was revealed that Jason Reitman, son of Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman, would be helming a sequel to the comedy classic. This marks the first time since 1989’s Ghostbusters II that fans will be revisiting the original continuity of the franchise which was rebooted in 2016 but a sequel to that film doesn’t seem very likely at this point.
A new report claims that the upcoming Ghostbusters film will be centered around a cast of teenage characters. It was revealed earlier today that Ernie Hudson, Dan Akyroyd, and Bill Murray will be returning to reprise their original roles but it seems that those characters won’t be the sole focus of the film. The report comes from The Hollywood Reporter’s Borys Kit, who claimed that the main cast of Jason Reitman’s Ghostbusters sequel could possibly be four teenagers, with two being boys and two being girls. Check out the Tweet below to see the full report.

A third Ghostbusters film had been in development for years prior to the release of the 2016 reboot. It seems that Sony has now returned to the idea of a third film in the franchise but sadly, Egon actor Harold Ramis has since passed on and will be the only core Ghostbusters team member not appearing in the film.

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.

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.
