Jason Reitman will direct a new Ghostbusters film set in the original universe


Well, this is rather splendid news to wake up to!

For whatever reasons, call it… fate, call it luck, call it karma, Jason Reitman will direct and co-write a new Ghostbusters film set in the world of the original 1984 movie, which was directed by his father, Ivan Reitman. There was an attempt at a reboot in 2016, but we try not to talk about that as it was a bit disappointing.

“I’ve always thought of myself as the first Ghostbusters fan, when I was a 6-year-old visiting the set. I wanted to make a movie for all the other fans,” Reitman told EW. “This is the next chapter in the original franchise. It is not a reboot. What happened in the ‘80s happened in the ‘80s, and this is set in the present day.”

“This is very early, and I want the film to unwrap like a present. We have a lot of wonderful surprises and new characters for the audience to meet,” said Reitman, who co-wrote the screenplay Gil Kenan (Monster House and Poltergeist).

There is no word on the exact plot or whether Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson or Sigourney Weaver will return, but I’ve got a good feeling about this.

Sony plans to release the film in the summer of 2020 and shooting is expected to begin in a few months.

There is also this teaser for the film and it hits all the right spots!

That’s how you do a teaser!
