Next year's new Ghostbusters movie is rumored to be called Ghostbusters: Afterlife. Bill Murray's return to the franchise is NOT a rumor. Dan Aykroyd just confirmed the good news in an interview, making Murray the last of the surviving original team members to return. Yay! Now Murray doesn't have to add missing out on the cast reunion to his list of regrets. Unlike Garfield, maybe.

Aykroyd also said that the plot of the new film would resonate for anyone who's lost a loved one: that sounds like they'll address the loss of Harold Ramis, aka Egon Spengler. It's set for release on July 10th, 2020: while we wait for a proper trailer (and more details), here's the teaser trailer from earlier this year.
