Rick Moranis reportedly will not reprise his Louis Tully role in Ghostbusters: Afterlife. Moranis also did not take part in the 2016 all-female reboot.
The news comes after Bill Murray spoke out publicly about coming back to the franchise for the first time, noting that Jason Reitman’s script is really good. Murray also noted that the script for the highly anticipated sequel has a lot of emotion and doesn’t shy away from the fact that Harold Ramis is no longer with us. As Ghostbusters fans know, Murray has been cagey about a sequel for decades now, so his words should carry some weight.
