Jason reitman, the son of the director of the original film, Ivan Reitman, came up with the story and co-wrote the screenplay for Ghostbusters: Beyond, directing it too. The plot takes place 30 years after the original films, following a family who move to a small town and discover their connection to the original Ghostbusters team. The movie made cry Ivan Reitman when you first saw it, and it seems like a Bill Murray, who hated the sequel, he also likes it.
The actor wrote his thoughts on the film:
Here’s how Bill Murray talks about the movie Ghostbusters: Beyond:
“I remember Jason Reitman calling me and saying, I have an idea for another Ghostbusters movie. I have had this idea for years. I thought, “What the heck could that be?” I remember it when I was a kid. I remember his Bar Mitzvah. I was like: What the heck? What does this child know? But he had a really wonderful idea of writing with another wonderful guy I worked with, Gil Kenan, who did City of Ember: In Search of Light (2008). The two wrote a Ghostbusters movie that really brings him back to life. It really has the feel of the first, more so than the second or the female version. It has a different feel to two out of four. I think it really has something. “
Bill Murray continues: “It was hard. It was very hard. So I think it will be good. We were at it for a while, but it was physically painful. Wearing those backpacks is extremely uncomfortable. We had batteries the size of batteries. Now they have stacks the size of earrings. It is still a very heavy garment to wear, all the time. The special effects are a lot of wind and dirt on your face, and there was a lot to go down and back up. I was like: What is this? What am I doing? They are like Bulgarian deadlifts, or a kettlebell, going up and down with this thing on my back. It was very uncomfortable. Usually when something has a very high misery quotient, something comes out of it and some quality is produced that, if you can capture and project it, appears on the screen and affects you. I think it will come out sometime in the fall. They have delayed it for a year or a year and a half, but I’m glad they did. It will be worth seeing ”.
Ghostbusters: Beyond will premiere on December 3, 2021.
