According to a post by director Jason Reitman, filming of the new Ghostbusters movie has finished up in Alberta.
Reitman captioned “Wrapped! 68 days and still smiling. #GB20” to a photo of the movie’s cast members Finn Wolfhard, Carrie Coon, Logan Kim and McKenna Grace. To either side of the cast are Jason Reitman (right), who also co-wrote the script, and his father, Ivan Reitman (left), who is producing the new movie and directed the original two Ghostbusters films.
“Rust City”, featured on the clapperboard held by Carrie Coon, is the ‘secret’ decoy name that Ghostbusters 2020 was filmed under.
The photo location is shown as the Calgary Film Centre and Ghostbusters 2020 filming around the province included in both Calgary and Fort Macleod. Original stars Dan Aykroyd and Bill Murray were spotted in the area, as was new cast member Paul Rudd. The film will also include original Ghostbuster Ernie Hudson, and Annie Potts and Sigourney Weaver will reprise their original roles.
The newest film in the franchise is scheduled to open in theaters on July 10, 2020.
Ghostbusters was conceived by Dan Aykroyd – who was influenced by generations of his family’s involvement with the paranormal at the Aykroyd family farm just north of Kingston, including by his father, Peter Aykroyd, who authored A History of Ghosts: The True Story of Séances, Mediums, Ghosts and Ghostbusters.
Dan spoke more about his family’s paranormal history at the farmhouse in this snippet from Reelz “Ghostbusters: Behind Closed Doors”:
