Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire (2024)

In Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire, the Spengler family returns to where it all started – the iconic New York City firehouse – to team up with the original Ghostbusters, who’ve developed a top-secret research lab to take busting ghosts to the next level. But when the discovery of an ancient artifact unleashes an army of ghosts that casts a death chill upon the city, Ghostbusters new and old must join forces to protect their home and save the world from a second Ice Age.

 

Previously had a December 20, 2023 theatrical release before getting pushed to March 2024 due to the writers and actors strike. (7/28/23)

Co-written and directed by Gil Kenan (Monster House, City of Ember, Poltergeist, A Boy Called Christmas). (12/6/22)

Co-writer Gil Kenan gave a brief update on the project and what to expect, saying: “We’re writing as quickly as we can. We had the story before we finished Afterlife. And we have been crafting this with as much care as it took to build Afterlife into a worthy sequel.” Adding that Ernie Hudson’s Winston will have a much larger role this time ’round, saying: “The character of Winston Zeddemore and Zeddemore Industries figures strongly into the future of Ghostbusters.” (7/5/22)

Carrie Coon returns as Callie.

Paul Rudd returns as Grooberson

Mckenna Grace returns as Phoebe.

Ernie Hudson returns as Winston.

This project’s codename is said to be “FIREHOUSE” which is an obvious reference to the original Ghostbusters HQ in Manhattan, which is also where this sequel is said to take place.

While they haven’t officially signed on yet, the main cast from the previous movie, including Mckenna Grace, Finn Wolfhard, Carrie Coon and Paul Rudd are all expected to return.

Jason Reitman (Ghostbusters: Afterlife) is back to co-write with Gil Kenan, but it’s unclear at the moment if he’ll also return to direct.

Aside from this live-action sequel, a new animated Netflix series and an animated movie reportedly featuring all new characters is also in development.

This is the latest sequel and fifth Ghostbusters movie overall (if you include the 2016 all female Ghostbusters).

Sony Pictures released Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire in Theaters on March 22, 2024.

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment released Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire on Digital on May 7, 2024.

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment released Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD on June 25, 2024.
