CinemaCon 2022: Sony officially confirms Fifth Ghostbusters movie in development

April 26th, 2022 by Marc Comments

Yes! We knew it was likely but Sony have confirmed another installment in our favourite franchise… Venom! Only kidding, it’s Ghostbusters!

Yes, at last night’s CinemaCon 2022 presentation Sony Pictures a fifth movie is currently in development – meaning that, yes, they count Ghostbusters: Answer the Call as one of the five.

No other details were revealed about the movie, s we can’t comment on cast, story, setting… will it be the original team? The new kids? Someone new altogether? Who knows but for now, I’d put money on it we’ll be seeing Ernie Hudson back picking up from the end of Ghostbusters: Afterlife when he revealed he had the Firehouse, the Ecto-1 and the money to start the crew up again. Oh, and it seemed that something was looking to get out of the containment unit.

Writer/director Jason Reitman has said that he’d love to see this franchise cross all sorts of countries, places and people, giving us exciting stories of Ghostbusters from different cultures, so perhaps we’ll see Ghostbusters going global in this next movie… whatever happens, if it’s done with the love and reverence that Afterlife was, we’re there opening night, come what may.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
