Finn Wolfhard Updates: The “Ghostbusters: Afterlife” star described him as a “horror-comedy killer.” Soon, you’ll be able to catch Finn Wolfhard with Carrie Coon, McKenna Grace, and Paul Rudd in front of the Ghostbusters: Afterlife camera.
But in an interview with NME before the release of the much-anticipated franchise flick, Wolfhard opened up his ambitions as a director on the big screen. Regarding Wolfhard’s set quality, NME wrote:
When Wolfhard talks about his time on any set, you get the impression he is constantly absorbing and observing, keen to learn absolutely everything about the craft. It makes sense because he wants to become a filmmaker himself.
He has already written and directed a short film called Night Shifts and is currently working on his first feature-length film.
“It’s a horror-comedy-slasher movie that takes place at a camp,” he says, keeping the rest of the details close to his chest for now.
Finn Wolfhard Delighted For His Film.
A “horror-comedy-slasher” film is, well, what one would expect from the Stranger Things star, having appeared in Andy Muschietti’s It duology alongside Jaeden Liberher, Bill Skarsgård, and Jeremy Ray Taylor.
With a Ghostbusters film soon to be under his belt, he’s clearly wedded to zany, evocative horror, and the “comedy-slasher” part of that synopsis would imply a level of homage very much in keeping with the sentimental qualities of his projects.
That an 18-year-old boy is even beginning to think about his first feature is pretty remarkable in its own right.
“I’m at the point where I’m very lucky to be doing things that I really like,” he later I’m very lucky to be doing things that I really like. “I’m proud of it and hope people keep hiring me, but I’m definitely enjoying it.”
Ghostbusters: Afterlife will release in theatres on November 18, and no word yet when we can expect the feature-length directorial debut of Wolfhard.
