A third Ghostbusters film had been in various stages of development since Ghostbusters II in 1989. After Murray refused to commit to the project, and after the death of cast member Harold Ramis in 2014, Sony instead produced a reboot. After the film underperformed at the box office, Reitman began developing a direct sequel to the original films. The new cast members were announced by July 2019, while the original cast signed on two months later.
Ghostbusters: Afterlife was originally scheduled for release in the United States on July 10, 2020, but was delayed to March 5, 2021 due to the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic.
