Writers’ Strike Delays ‘Ghostbusters 4’ Release Until March, 2024

As a result of the writers’ strike in Hollywood, Sony will be delaying the premiere of its Ghostbusters: Afterlife sequel until March 29, 2024. The film had originally been scheduled to debut on December 20 of this year.

Ghostbusters is only one of the anadrol wirkung projects Sony is delaying; the others include several Spider-Man spinoffs (Kraven the Hunter and Madame Web). Alsom the release date for Venom 3 has been moved to summer 2024.

The cast for Ghostbusters 4, as yet-unnamed, includes most of the Afterlife crew, including Mckenna Grace, Finn Wolfhard, Logan Kim, Celeste O’Connor, Carrie Coon, Paul Rudd, Ernie Hudson, and William Atherton. They will be joined by newcomers Kumail Nanjiani, Patton Oswalt, James Acaster, and Emily Alyn Lind. Afterlife veteran Sigourney Weaver will not be returning, however.

Ghostbusters 4 will be directed by Gil Kenan, using a script he wrote with Afterlife director Jason Reitman. When the new director was announced, Reitman was quoted as saying: “A few years ago, my father handed me the keys to Ecto-1 and together we made Ghostbusters: Afterlife. Words will never express how grateful I am to have made a film with my father by my side. It’s now time to hand those keys to my creative partner and fellow Ghostbuster Gil Kenan, a brilliant director who will keep the Spengler spirit alive. I can only hope to provide him the same producorial care and support that my father showed me.”

The delay has not come as a surprise. In an earlier comment to Screen Rant, Ernie Hudson had said “I’ve heard rumors the end of the year they’ll push for, or maybe spring next year. I never know how the studios are gonna do whatever they do, but the filming is done, which was a little bit difficult with the writers’ strike and everything going on. So, I know there was a lot of shuffling around in terms of where it was being done, but I’m thankful that we at least got it done in the can, and now, I’m like everybody else, waiting to see what it all looks like.”
