Ghostbusters 2020 targets Stranger Things and Avengers stars for first casting news

March 1st, 2019 by Marc Comments

So, when I first heard about the new Ghostbusters movie and the possible inclusion of kids, I said that I hoped it would be like if the kids from Stranger Things or IT went to get the Ghostbusters rather than jumping in themselves.

And it looks like I was on the money as we have our first potential casting news for the new movie.

It and Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard and Avengers: Infinity War star Carrie Coon are in talks to jump into our most anticipated movie of the next squillion years.

But who re they playing in Jason Reitman’s upcoming movie? Well…

“Sources say the story will focus on a single mom and her family, with Coon playing the mom and Wolfhard playing her son. It’s currently unknown how that will connect to the new Ghostbusters team.”

We also hear the mum and family will have ‘mysterious ties back to the original 1984 movie’. Hmmmmmmm….

A lot of speculation is floating around already the these characters will be related to Egon, or Ray, but honestly, I reckon they’ll be new characters who the team will have to help as something nasty and supernatural comes out of the woodwork.

What say you all? Let us know…

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….
