GHOSTBUSTERS To Potentially Take $70 Million+ Loss, Sequel in Question
After a lackluster showing at the box office, it seems unlikely that a sequel to the Ghostbusters reboot will happen. THR reports that the film has currently grossed $180 million globally and will need about $300 million to break even. With a few more markets still to open in, estimates are guessing the film will finish at $225 million, but nothing is guaranteed.
With silence as to whether or not a live action sequel is still in the works, Sony has confirmed that there will be animated spin-offs set for 2018 and 2019. In 2018, the series Ghostbusters: Ecto Force will look to find a platform and the 2019 animated feature will supposedly be a film for theaters or Blu-ray.
All that's really known right now is that there has been no talk of a Ghostbusters sequel since the film's opening in July, and analysts are betting smart money against it.
