Apparently, director Jason Reitman has been a fan of Rudd’s for a long time and has been wanting to work with the actor ever since a short film of Reitman’s premiered before Wet Hot American Summer at the Sundance Film Festival back in 2001. Rudd will appear alongside Stranger Things’ Finn Wolfhard and Captain Marvel’s McKenna Grace. Carrie Coon is also rumored to be appearing in the film, along with original Ghostbusters actors Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, and Sigourney Weaver all making appearances.
The part Rudd will be playing in the upcoming film is unknown at the moment, but it’s a good bet he’ll be one of the new team of Ghostbusters that will be featured in the film.
