A new Ghostbusters movie is on the way.
Watch the teaser trailer released for the upcoming Jason Reitman-directed Ghostbusters film, which will hit theatres in 2020. The new movie will serve as a sequel to the original films.
Entertainment Weekly has learned exclusively that Jason Reitman will direct and co-write an upcoming film, set in the world that was saved decades previously by the proton pack-wearing working stiffs in the original 1984 movie, which was directed by his father, Ivan Reitman.
“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 says. “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.”
Sony Pictures has dated the film for Summer 2020, with plans to start shooting in a few months.
