Jason Reitman says Ghostbusters: Afterlife is finished and ready to go…

December 5th, 2020 by Marc Comments

While Ghostbusters: Afterlife was set to come out earlier this year and is not set for June 2021 (that damned virus!) writer/director Jason Reitman, son of Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II director Ivan Reitman, has used the time to make the movie as close to perfect as is physically possible.

And it is, he tells us, now finished.

Taking to social media (below), Reitman posted and image of him as a child rocking his Ghostbusters teeshirt, saying:

“A journey that started 3 years ago or maybe 35 years ago is complete.

“Can’t wait to see GB:A in a theater up on the big screen with an even bigger bag of popcorn. I’ve been catching up on all kinds of classics at home, but what I miss is sitting with an audience of friends and strangers and feeling that collective rush as we laugh together or jump out of our seats. And yes… I miss trailers too!

Right now, much braver people than me are doing the hard work so we can all return to our lives. Please support their sacrifice. Please stay safe. “Wear a mask for you and your community. Remember that Ghostbusters believe in science!”

While HBO Max and Disney are toying with/releasing movies on their respective streaming services, Sony are so far completely dedicated to releasing Afterlife on the biggest screens possible and, while I cannot wait to see this, I think that’s a great idea because going to see a new Ghostbusters in the cinema is a magical experience and one I can’t wait to share with all my family and friends next summer.

Man, I’m so excited for this!

What say you all?

Ghostbusters: Afterlife is set for release on June 11th, 2021.

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….
