Ghostbusters 2016 Director Congratulates Afterlife On Their First-Day Box Office Success

Paul Feig took to social media to congratulate Ghostbusters: Afterlife on its success.

Feig, who is well known for his work on Bridesmaids and Spy, directed the Ghostbusters reboot in 2016.

Feig has had success directing films such as A Simple Favor and Last Christmas in the years following his role in the Ghostbusters franchise.

The first film in the Ghostbusters franchise, directed by Ivan Reitman, was released in 1984.

The titular team, which included Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, and the late Harold Ramis, was a defining moment in film humor.

Ghostbusters’ success inspired a 1989 sequel as well as a never-ending stream of toys, cartoons, tie-in merchandise, and more.

In 2016, Feig’s adaptation of Ghostbusters, starring Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon, brought the series back to the big screen.
