While talking to Empire, Ghostbusters: Afterlife director Jason Reitman said they knew they would open the film with some deadly efforts.

We knew from the beginning that we were going to make a movie about the Spengler family. To open with Egon and see someone die in the middle of trying to catch a ghost, which had not happened in previous films. If my father’s view is that we should take this seriously, then we need to get a ghost to kill a human and let the audience know we’re not kidding here.

With a mix of new and recurring characters, Jason Reitman would make Ghostbusters: Afterlife a treat for oldschool fans and people entering the franchise for the very first time. “This is for everyone who grew up with Ghostbusters and love it,said Reitman. “We would make a movie for you. But there is also a generation of young people that we would like to give grades to stick with, so that Ghostbusters could have a continued life that is out of my and my dad’s hands and that will be in the hands of other directors who can continue to make Ghostbusters movie.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife will be released on 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray on February 1, 2022, and will also be part of a massive Ghostbusters box set that will contain Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II.
