Chris Pratt in talks to Star in Ghostbusters Afterlife Sequel

Chris Pratt continues to stay busy in Hollywood. The Guardians of the Galaxy Star has a lot of projects in the coming year, and Giant Freakin Robot is reporting that Pratt may be adding “Ghostbuster” to his impressive resume very soon. The site claims “trusted and proven sources” have Pratt in discussion to star in the direct sequel to the 2021 Ghostbusters Afterlife film.

No details have been provided as to the role Pratt would play, but given his experience in action and adventure films, Ghostbusters seems a logical fit given Pratt’s filmography. Marvel fans would undoubtedly delight in seeing Star-Lord and Ant-Man come together once again in an alternate universe.

Ghostbusters Afterlife

Ghostbusters Afterlife was directed by Jason Reitman and experienced financial success with a 205 million dollar box office. The film saw the return of fan favorites Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and Ernie Hudson alongside a new supporting cast of characters. A third film had been in the works for decades since Ghostbusters 2, but production hit a snag following the passing of Harold Ramis in 2014. Bill Murray refused to make another film and Sony moved on instead with an all-female driven Ghostbusters film.

In 2019, Jason Reitman confirmed a sequel to the original films, a new cast was announced by July, and the original cast signed on two months later. Ghostbusters Afterlife has received public praise for its nostalgic tone and treatment of Ramis’s character Egon Spengler.

The sequel to Ghostbuster Afterlife has been tentatively set for December of 2023, and will see the franchise returning to NYC. Where Chris Pratt would fit into any of the future story is yet to be seen, but we are excited to see more Ghostbusters and Chris Pratt would certainly elevate this established franchise even further.
