Paul Rudd was part of one of the biggest movies of 2019, Avengers: Endgame, but next year he's going to be involved in one of the most anticipated blockbusters of 2020, the Ghostbusters reboot. The official Ghostbusters page posted up this announcement from Rudd:

Besides the announcement that Rudd will be cast, the movie is now officially titled Ghostbusters 2020. We don't have any new details for the plot, but we do know that Rudd joins a cast that already includes the likes of Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things), Carrie Coon (The Leftovers), and McKenna Grace (Captain Marvel).

We don't have any details on who Rudd is playing, but I guess that Coon is playing the mother to lead characters played by Wolfhard and Grace—Rudd is likely a boyfriend or stepfather type; maybe he was one of the last Ghostbusters recruits before they shut down. Then again, this is just me speculating.

I guess it's also worth mentioning that Coon had starred in Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame. She voices Thanos' lackey, Proxima Midnight.

Ghostbusters 2020 will be directed by Ivan Reitman's son Jason Reitman, and he'll be working on a script that he wrote alongside Gil Kenan (Monster House). Unlike the full reboot which we got in 2016, this will continue the original Ghostbusters timeline that was started back in 1984. Hopefully, we also get an update on whatever happened to Venkman, Stantz, and Zeddemore. Maybe we can even find out what happened to Dana Barrett and her kooky neighbor Louis Tully.

Ghostbusters 2020 is aiming for a release on July 20, 2020.
