Paul Rudd plays Mr. Grooberson, a teacher of protagonists Phoebe ( McKenna Grace ) and Trevor ( Finn Wolfhard ), children of single mother Callie ( Carrie Coon ). Grooberson was a kid in 1984 when the Ghostbusters fought Gozer in New York. An event that today is known as the “Manhattan Crossrip”, and is considered almost a myth by the youngest.
In the cast we also find Finn Wolfhard ( Stranger Things, IT ), Carrie Coon ( The Leftovers, Fargo, Avengers: Infinity War ), Mckenna Grace ( The terrifying adventures of Sabrina, Captain Marvel ),Celeste O’Connor , Logan Kim and Paul Rudd ( Ant-Man, Avengers: Endgame ). With them also Oliver Cooper .
A passing of the baton
Ghostbusters: Legacy is a real “handover” behind the camera, as Jason Reitman is the son of Ivan Reitman , director of Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II .
For Jason, this is a major change in his career, which until now has always been focused on dramatic and introspective comedies of a semi-independent nature, such as Thank You For Smoking, Up in the Clouds, Juno, Young Adult, Tully and the very recent The Front. Runner . His father Ivan participates as a producer, while the screenplay was written by Jason together with Gil Kenan ( Monster House, Ember, Poltergeist ).
