Jason Reitman Teases Vigo the Carpathian’s Return in a Ghostbusters: Afterlife Sequel


Jason Reitman has been on a press tour rivaling The Neverending Story for the final a number of months beginning effectively earlier than the discharge of the extremely anticipated Ghostbusters: Afterlife and even after its launch, it reveals no indicators of letting up. He has been requested all the things from what it was wish to work together with his father to his ideas on Rubbish Pail Children and all the things in between. Just lately, nonetheless, in an interview with Christopher Marc from The Playlist, Reitman was requested about his plans for future sequels, together with if Vigo the Carpathian, from Ghostbusters II, could be within the playing cards for a return.

“There’s loads of time and alternative for Vigo the Carpathian to make his return. Look, are you saying that’s the one portray of Vigo the Carpathian? Perhaps, he’s using a horse in one other one, perhaps, impaling somebody in one other one.”

In case you’re unfamiliar with the sequel to the primary movie, Vigo was portrayed by the late Wilhelm von Homburg. Jason Reitman even confirmed up as an additional within the film as ‘Brownstone Boy #2’ however I digress. Again to Vigo. He was born in 1505 A.D. and died in 1610 A.D. The late, nice Harold Ramis fills us in on this element within the sequel earlier than Venkman humorously quips that the villain actually hung in there.


So how did Vigo die to develop into a part of the spirit realm? Nice query. In case your first thought was that somebody who was 105 years outdated died of pure causes, you’d clearly be fallacious, and actually fallacious. He was poisoned, stabbed, shot, hung, stretched, disemboweled, drawn, and quartered. So clearly, a person of the folks he dominated. He additionally earned the nicknames Vigo the Despised, Vigo the Torturer, Vigo the Unholy, and naturally everybody’s favourite, Vigo the Butch. We go on to be taught that there was a prophecy proper earlier than his head died: Dying is however a door, time is however a window, I will be again. The villain is dispatched in Ghostbusters II however a prophecy like that just about begs for a spherical two, and the followers could get it.

Reitman was additionally requested who he may get to direct the sequel. He mentioned, “I’d like to see Ghostbusters motion pictures from all my favourite filmmakers.” He stopped in need of naming anybody specifically saying, “I might however I don’t wish to jinx it as a result of I really do consider on this concept.” When requested if this included Diablo Cody, Reitman’s longtime and Oscar-winning collaborator, he answered, “In case you don’t assume I haven’t had this dialog together with her, you then don’t know our relationship effectively sufficient. Yeah, we’ve spoken about Ghostbusters. I’d like to see a Diablo Cody Ghostbusters film. She’s among the finest storytellers alive, we’ve made 4 motion pictures collectively and I’d like to make a fifth.”

The filmmaker didn’t give quite a bit to go on, and most questions right here had been the truth is answered open-ended. There does nonetheless sound like deep conversations and ideas have taken place in regards to the Afterlife sequel. Two post-credit scenes, one in every of which most actually was supposed to arrange a sequel, did give us some issues to chew on and ponder so we weren’t left with nothing on our plate. You may say we had been left with simply sufficient to maintain our imaginations working wild.

So what do we all know? We (WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD) know Ernie Hudson’s Winston Zeddemore was arrange because the Bruce Wayne/ Tony Stark sort position for the monetary backing of the workforce and even a doable mentor. We additionally know the containment unit was blinking reasonably ominously, shades of the primary Ghostbusters earlier than it blew up when it despatched all beforehand caught entities into New York. We undoubtedly have a while earlier than any sequel drops, however it’s enjoyable to take a position on what might be subsequent particularly for die onerous followers of the franchise.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife is in theaters now. This information involves us from The Playlist.
