If the world hadn’t gone to hell, we’d be about one month away from getting a new Ghostbusters movie from director Jason Reitman, son of the original film’s director Ivan Reitman. But since Ghostbusters: Afterlife has been pushed back until March 2021, we’ll have to settle for checking out some rarely seen footage from behind the scenes of the original Ghostbusters.
In the original movie from 1984, Peter Venkman (Bill Murray), Ray Stantz (Dan Aykroyd) and Egon Spenger (Harold Ramis) start up their own paranormal extermination and containment business from scratch.
