CAST & CREW FROM GHOSTBUSTERS 2020 TAKE OVER CROSSFIELD
It has been a whirlwind couple of weeks in Crossfield as ghosts, A-list celebrities and a very famous car descended on the town to shoot a feature film being referred to by the production company as “Rust City.”
Despite hopes to keep the true identity of the film a secret, locals were quick to learn the name was a decoy for Ghostbusters 2020, the third instalment of the ghost-hunter franchise. Sightings of the movie’s all-star cast started popping up on social media shortly after.
Dan Aykroyd, Paul Rudd and Mckenna Grace have been spotted since filming started July 26, even posing for photos and videos with fans over the past two weeks. READ MORE
GHOSTBUSTERS 2020 SET PHOTOS FEATURE RUSTED ECTO-1 & STAY PUFT REFERENCE
New set photos from Ghostbusters 2020 feature a rusty Ecto-1 as well as a reference to the infamous Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. Released in 1984, the original Ghostbusters followed the comedic exploits of a quartet of paranormal exterminators trying to save New York from a massive outbreak of supernatural activity. The unlikely success of that first Ghostbusters movie paved the way for a 1989 sequel, Ghostbusters II, that performed well at the box office but fell short in the eyes of many fans. READ MORE
‘GHOSTBUSTERS 2020’ SET PHOTOS HAVE HIT THE INTERNET
Who you gonna call? The Ghostbusters are back with the extremely long awaited third film featuring the original cast!

And now, some BTS photos give us our best look yet at Ecto-1, and even a little easter egg from the first film!
Jason Reitman, the son of the original director, Ivan Reitman, is set to direct the third film in the series. This sequel comes nearly 30 years after the second film, and hot off the heels of the less than well received all female reboot we got in 2016. While this film brings back the beloved cast, it will focus on a new generation of Busters, as it is set to revolve around teens joining the fight of the paranormal. Now, BTS photos from on location reveal the iconic vehicle as well as a nod to the massive villain that terrorized New York back in 1984, the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man. READ MORE
‘GHOSTBUSTERS 2020’ SHOOT BRINGS OUT FANS OF ALL AGES
The next generation of Ghostbusters were in Fort Macleod on Thursday. While speculation grew on Main Street about what cast and crew members may be around, two youngsters were dressed in full Ghostbusters attire on a sidewalk just down the street from where production was taking place.
Four-year-old Machlan Miller and Kody Kristensen, who turned five on Thursday, had not met each other before. But their costumes and toys brought them together and their parents later exchanged contact information.
“My son became a fan naturally,” said Machlan’s father, Keith Miller, of Lethbridge, on what attracted them to visit the nearby set.
“Even though I am a huge fan, it was one of those things. He saw ghosts, he saw the symbol somewhere and said ‘I want to know more.’ And then he heard the song (by Ray Parker Jr.). Then you show him the music video because it’s not too scary. Since then, it’s huge. He’s made it his own. He found a firefighter costume and then put it on. We were like ‘you’re a firefighter.’ He was like ‘no, I’m a Ghostbuster.’ His poor sister has to be the ghost in everything.” READ MORE
