Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire director teases new movie after credit scene

Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire spoilers follow.

Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire director Gil Kenan has teased fans with a potential continuation of the franchise following the credits scene of Frozen Empire.

The mid-credits scene picks up after the Ghostbusters have saved New York City from the phantom god Garraka. However, at a petrol station, a Stay-Puft Marshmallows truck seems to drive itself away. It's revealed that it's the Mini-Pufts who are driving the truck.

It's a cute little scene but in a new interview with EW, director Kenan has explained that it could lead to more entries in the Ghostbusters film franchise.

"In terms of where else this goes... look, we really care about the characters in this film. We feel like there is more story to be told," Kenan said.

"And I'm really hoping audiences connect with the adventure that the Spengler family goes on in this film. And if they do, then I really hope that we can continue this story."

Kenan also explained that he and co-writer and producer Jason Reitman specifically have "a story up [their] sleeves" that continues that mid-credits scene.

"There's more trouble where that came from. Nothing we can talk about yet, but it feels like those guys have way more story to tell," Kenan said.

"I love those guys; they’re so fun to direct. [They’re] prima donnas. Their rider is impossible, but it’s worth it for what they do onscreen," he jokingly added.

If there were to be a new Ghostbusters movie, it would make sense for it to pick up where the mid-credits scene left off.

Frozen Empire itself follows on from the Ghostbusters: Afterlife's post-credit scene which featured Ernie Hudson's Winston restoring the Ecto-1 to its firehouse home.

Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire is out now in cinemas.
