It isn't particularly shocking that a film of this profile is shrouded in mystery. However, it seems as if the studio is particularly worried about any details of the sequel leaking to the public.

Regardless, Wolfhard, who has been making a name for himself in Hollywood in a series of prolific roles, will be able to share more details once filming gets underway.

Wolfhard was revealed to be a part of the cast of Ghostbusters 3 in an announcement by director Jason Reitman. Little else is know about the film, other than that it will be a direct sequel to the original movie.
