Pre-production of the next Ghostbusters film kicks off in the United Kingdom

Earlier this month, a Film & Television Industry Alliance listing revealed that the upcoming Gil Kenan-directed Ghostbusters sequel, codenamed Firehouse, would begin this March in London, England. The update no doubt surprised some, given that the forthcoming sequel is said to pick up following the events of Afterlife, which saw the Ecto-1 finding its way back into New York City.

Up until now, one individual who’s stayed pretty quiet regarding Firehouse has been Finn Wolfhard, who in Afterlife played Trevor, grandson of Egon Spengler, but in a new interview with ComicBook.com, while promoting Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio, Wolfhard was asked about next year’s sequel, with the Stranger Things star admitting that he’s already “read an early draft.”
