Tom Rothman teased new "Venom" and "Ghostbusters" sequels in a sizzle reel during the Sony’s presentation at CinemaCon 2022
After the success of “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” and “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” this past fall, Sony Pictures CEO Tom Rothman announced at CinemaCon on Monday night that sequels for both franchises have been greenlit.
“Ghostbusters: Afterlife” had a more modest box office run but still did well domestically with $129.3 million grossed in North America and $197.3 million worldwide. The upcoming sequel was described as “the next chapter in the original ‘Ghostbusters’ universe” after a post-credits scene in “Afterlife” in which original Ghostbuster Winston Zeddermore, played by Ernie Hudson, teased a possible reunion with his teammates.
The fetid corpse that they called Ghostbusters in 2016 didn’t get a sequel, but it did win a Kid’s Choice award!
