Kumail Nanjiani and Patton Oswalt are the newest actors to join the upcoming sequel to Ghostbusters: Afterlife.
Deadline reports that the two actors will join returning stars Paul Rudd and Carrie Coon in the flick, which is said to be set in New York City and feature the original film’s firehouse.
The film is expected to be out in December this year, with Gil Kenan and Jason Reitman switching roles as the film’s writer/exec producer and director.
“It’s an absolute honor to pick up the proton pack and step behind the camera for the next chapter of the Spengler family saga,” Gil shared in a previous statement. “I just wish I could go back to 1984 and tell the kid in the sixth row of the Mann Valley West that one day he was going to get to direct a Ghostbusters film.”
Ghostbusters joins these other great films as one of the highest-grossing horror films of all time.
