It’s been over a decade since the first “Ghostbusters” came to theaters, but that hasn’t stopped fans from dreaming of another adventure with the popular movie franchise.
This year, we’ll be able to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the franchise in a few years, and fans of the movie franchise are celebrating with a big movie coming to theaters in 2020.
“We have a really, really great cast, we have some great actors, we’ve got some really fun villains,” Melissa McCarthy, who plays the villainous “Ghostbuster,” told The Hollywood Reporter about the film.
“So, I’m going to be so excited about the 20 years from now that I can’t wait to go see it.”
The 20th Anniversary of the Ghostbusters franchise hits theaters on February 14, 2020.
A new trailer will debut at the beginning of the month.
McCarthy will play “Burt Reynolds,” who is a former employee of the company that owns the studio, Universal Pictures.
The film is based on the 1990 comic book series, and stars Paul Feig as the titular ghostbuster.
It is unclear if McCarthy will be returning to the franchise for the sequel, but she did say she’d like to work on a “Ghosts 2” with her former co-stars, and it’s unclear whether she’ll get to see any of the original cast again.
“There are a lot of things that I’ve been meaning to do since the original film came out, and I’m really excited to get back to them,” McCarthy said.
“I’ve been so lucky to work with so many great people, and now I just want to do something really fun with all the amazing characters I’ve worked with.”
In addition to McCarthy and Feig, the film will be directed by Kevin Feige, who will also produce.
The cast also includes Melissa McCarthy (Ghostbusters), Kristen Wiig (Ghostbuster), Kate McKinnon (Ghosts), Leslie Jones (Ghostbusters), Amy Poehler (Ghosters), Dan Aykroyd (Ghostfaster), Melissa McCarthy and Kate McKellar.
