Ghostbusters 3 Targets Stranger Things Star Finn Wolfhard & Carrie Coon
Ghostbusters 3 encircles his first big stars as the project begins to take shape. Finn Wolfhard, star of Strange Things by Netflix and Carrie Coon, recently seen in the crime thriller Widows are both in talks to interpret director Jason Reitman's sequel. No agreement has yet been reached, but these are the first two names we have heard as being related to the new entry of the longstanding franchise, which will be in the same universe as the first two films.
According to a new report, Carrie Coon will play the mother of the family at the center of the story, with Finn Wolfhard playing his son. The details of the parcel are currently kept secret, but it has already been reported that the new down payment would be spent on a younger group of four teenagers assuming the role of Ghostbusters. Although this is not explicitly confirmed in this report, it is very likely that Wolfhard will be one of the new members of this team. There is no word on who else could join him for the moment. It is also unclear whether Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson or Bill Murray will return to their roles.
Finn Wolfhard saw his star power increase considerably. Apart from his work on Stranger Things he also starred in the recent adaptation of Stephen King IT which has become the horror film that has the biggest business figure to date. resume his role later this year. Since Stranger Things also takes place in the 1980s and this group of young children is confronted with supernatural forces, natural comparisons will be established. They even qualified as Ghostbusters in an episode. However, Wolfhard's audition seems to have sounded the death knell of Jason Reitman and studio executives, who decided to launch it despite reservations that might have been issued.

The project is not without controversy. This will ignore the restart of Ghostbusters led by a woman in 2016, a decision criticized by Leslie Jones. However, co-star Melissa McCarthy and director Paul Feig expressed their support. To make matters worse, Jason Reitman commented in an interview that this would make the franchise to the fans, which caused instant backlash. In any case, things are starting to take shape.
