Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire is an upcoming American supernatural comedy directed by Gil Kenan, who co-wrote it with Jason Reitman. It is the sequel to Ghostbusters: Afterlife (2021) and the fifth film in the Ghostbusters franchise. The film stars Paul Rudd, Carrie Coon, Finn Wolfhard, Mckenna Grace, Celeste O’Connor, and Logan Kim, alongside Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Annie Potts, and William Atherton reprising their characters from the earlier films, while Kumail Nanjiani and Patton Oswalt join the cast. In the film, following the events of Ghostbusters: Afterlife, the veteran Ghostbusters join forces with their recruits to save the world in New York City.
Following the success of Afterlife, Sony Pictures announced the sequel in April 2022, with Reitman returning as director. Kenan would later take over as director from Reitman that December, while the rest of the cast reprised their roles. New cast members including Nanjiani, Oswalt, James Acaster, and Emily Alyn Lind were announced in March 2023, with principal photography commencing that month and wrapping it in June. It is the first film in the Ghostbusters franchise made without the involvement of Ivan Reitman, who directed the first two films and produced subsequent films until his death in February 2022.
