The weird part is Hudson's video confirming it was back on August 27, it's like this online service, pay some money, and a celeb records a short message for you. In this case, it was a birthday greeting and he mentioned he was filming.

And also on September 12, Aykroyd confirmed he was also in the cast while he spoke to Joe Rogan on his podcast (01:46:49-01:46:52). Then on Friday, during the Halloween Horror Night red carpet, he confirmed some descendants of the original Ghostbusters are part of the new cast (00:40-00:59) and Ivan Reitman revealed (01:02-01:13) Rudd's character is a seismologist who goes to a small town experiencing mysterious earthquakes and teaches summer school there.

If Hudson and Aykroyd are back that should hopefully mean that Murray is back as well. I mean Bill was the big reason that Ghostbusters 3 didn't get made because of his own unwillingness to back to the material. And if this is banking itself on being a "true" follow up by actually having the characters from the original not just the actors I hope that means he swallowed that ego to come back as Peter one last time.

He's already been confirmed.

11/9: Here's what Aykroyd said in the interview.

-22:00-22:40
Jason Reitman wrote a beautiful heart felt script that takes the real DNA from the first two movies and transfers that directly to the, uh, third -- next generation. Hands off the legacy to the new generation of stars and players and actors and, uh, characters and, uh, we've shot our parts. Myself, Murray, Sigourney, and, um, Annie Potts and it was really exciting working with this new idea, new take on the story which, uh, Jason who is really incredible and fine filmmaker came up with so I'm pretty excited.

-22:58-23:14
A great story, a great setting. It's gonna be scary. Thought provoking. It's gonna be very heart felt. Um, it'll--you'll feel it if you have loved ones you miss and you've lost and want to get back with. It's gonna be evocative.

-24:33-24:37
And of course in this we will recognize him [Harold Ramis/Egon Spengler] in this film in some way. However small.

He already confirmed he was during a press event in Italy last month. The only one that wasn't confirmed yet that Aykroyd mentioned was Potts. But it's good to hear Murray, Aykroyd, Hudson, Potts, and Weaver will all be in the movie.

12/2: Movie is titled "Ghostbusters: Afterlife" and the trailer should be out this or next week.

We don't really get much of the old cast (who I am hoping is doing more then just showing up in cameos) and I admit the only laugh I got out of this one is the kid going "remember the summer we died laying under the table?" but I admit I do like the look of this one and honestly I am glad that isn't a world where no one believes that ghosts exist but rather one where they just haven't been seen for awhile (it's kind of confusing in the marketting and talk of this film if the events of Ghostbusters 2 happened though as a lot of the promotional material talks about the last big experience was with Stay Puff but doesn't mention the statue of liberty rising because of Vigo the carpartian or anything like that) and that yeah the grandfather since they mentioned him being dead is obviously Egon Spangler because this way they can have a connection to Harold Ramis's character even after his tragic passing. Thus we'll likely see the other Ghostbusters and co seek out this guy's family when all of these ghost signs come back. Also do like how we are focusing more on kid ghostbusters which honestly due to how child focused the franchise went you'd think we see more of but haven't. Like even with Extreme Ghostbusters that was still college aged "kids" not the actual kids seen here. So yeah giving this a chance like i did Ghostbusters 2016 which I enjoyed even if no one else did. Though if this movie flops I hope this is a sign to END the Ghostbusters franchise because it would be clear even getting back the original people in the original continuity it can't really be revived in this day and age.

Funny enough, what I'm thinking about most now as I watch this trailer is how different this will feel taking place outside of New York. The city was always a huge part of the franchise but I'm really curious to see how they do with this different setting. I'm really digging the shots like the Ecto 1 tearing through the field or the small town.

For some reason I keep being reminded of this post I made on a Black Clover talkback thread: C&C - Black Clover - "The One With No Magic" [9/8]

It seems like the inspiration for Maya comes from his wife, mother, and sister.
The good news is I'm not scared anymore. The bad news is, as I have absorbed things, I am now freaking infuriated.
