After being announced as director, Kenan said, “It is an absolute honor to pick up the proton pack and step behind the camera to work on the next chapter of the Spengler family saga.” Kenan added, “I wish I could go back to 1984 and tell the kid in the sixth row of the Mann Valley West that one day he would get to direct a ‘Ghostbusters’ movie.”
It is the fifth edition of the franchise, which includes the 1984 film “Ghostbusters”, its 1989 sequel “Ghostbusters II”, its 2016 remake designed to appeal to a female audience, as well as its 2021 sequel: Afterlife”.
