In an incredibly surprising announcement, Entertainment Weekly is reporting that director Jason Reitman, son of the original Ghostbusters director, Ivan Reitman, announced that he’s written a screenplay for a new Ghostbusters film in secret, and will direct the film. The new Ghostbusters is a sequel to the first two films, and is set in the same universe as the 1980’s classics.
“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 the outlet. “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.”
The film will release in the summer of 2020, with the main characters confirmed to be four new, teenage Ghostbusters. It’s currently unknown if any of the original cast will be returning.
