A trailer for “Ghostbusters: Afterlife,” the summer 2020 movie sequel coming out in July, shows that the comedic ghost story is leaving New York City and coming to a small town in Oklahoma.
The new film is reportedly a direct sequel to the events of “Ghostbusters” (1984) and “Ghostbusters II” (1989), and it stars Carrie Coon as a woman who moves her son and daughter from the big city to a fictional rural town in Oklahoma to live on land she’s inherited from her father, who we see had a connection to the original Ghostbusters.
Strange events begin occurring in the small town, and the children (including Finn Wolfhard of “Stranger Things”) discover odd things on the old farm, like Ghostbusters equipment.
The movie — not filmed in Oklahoma — is expected to include appearances by Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver and Annie Potts, according to reports.
