Who you gonna call? Ghostbusters film crew are spooked by ‘weird noises’ and believe they are being haunted by ghosts on eerie set in tube tunnel
- Crew members on the latest Ghostbusters film reported hearing ‘weird noises’
- The latest film in the series is being shot in abandoned tunnels near Westminster
The crew behind the new Ghostbusters film have been left spooked by ‘weird noises’ on the eerie set they are working on.
According to reports, several members of the crew have reported hearing strange noises on set in abandoned tube tunnels near Westminster in central London when filming at night.
The out-of-use tube lines have been chosen as the perfect setting for the comedy sequel, the fourth in the series.
A source told the Sun: ‘They have been hearing really weird noises, and it’s freaking people out. It’s spooky enough being in a dark tunnel deep underground, let alone there being ghouls too’.
There have previously been claims of ghostly goings on on the London Underground. Some sites have been built on top of ancient burial grounds, which only add to the mystery surrounding them.

The film, as yet untitled, comes almost 40 years after the original. It began shooting last month and is due for release in December of this year
Commuters have long reported seeing spooky visions while on the tub
Commuters have long reported seeing spooky visions while on the tube, including a ghostly woman at King’s Cross, an ancient Egyptian Princess at Holborn (near to the abandoned British Museum station), and Liverpool Street Station, built on a burial ground, where a man in overalls is said to walk the tracks.
Bethnal Green is also said to have a ghostly guest, with screams sometimes being reported. The station was used as a World War II air raid shelter, and saw the death of 173 after they stampeded to the station in a test raid in 1943.
Other popular stations such as Covent Garden, said to be home to a tall ghost-like figure wearing a top hat, Bank station, where the so-called Black Nun frequents, Elephant and Castle, where a girl is often seen boarding the train but never leaves, and South Kensington also have ghostly sightings.
However, little is known about encounters with ghosts in the tunnels being used for filming.

It is a sequel to Ghostbusters: Afterlife, which was released in 2021.
Prior to that, Ghostbusters was released in 2016, following over 20 years after Ghostbusters II in 1989, and the original film in 1984.
The latest in the series will see Bill Murray, 72, travel to London to reprise one of his most iconic film roles as Dr Peter Venkman.
Finn Wolfhard, 20, of Netflix’s Stranger Things fame, will also star in the film.
McKenna Grace, Carrie Coon and Paul Rudd also look set to have roles in the latest addition to the series, and original Ghostbuster Dan Aykroyd’s character, Doctor Raymond Stantz, also featured in the trailer for the film.
Harold Ramis was the third member of the original trio back in 1984. However, the American actor, who played Doctor Egon Spengler in the original film, died in 2014, leaving the future of the franchise temporarily in doubt, before the third film was released in 2016.
