So last night an announcement was made by Entertainment Weekly about a secret Ghostbusters movie that will begin shooting later this year. It came out of nowhere and even the most die-hard fans (me) had no idea.
EW- 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. It’s still too soon to reveal the plot of the screenplay, who the new characters will be, or whether the original actors like Dan Akroyd, Ernie Hudson, or Bill Murray will return. Harold Ramis died in 2014.
AND THEN they released a teaser trailer this morning....Mind BLOWN
Absolute chills. Ghostbusters is my Star Wars. Other kids were dreaming of being Han Solo while I was dreaming of being Peter Venkman. I still remember watching Ghostbusters 2 in theaters when I was 6 and my dad covering my eyes when the tub tried to eat Dana and Oscar. Let the hype machine begin everyone and let's get weird with it
GHOSTBUSTERS OUTTA NOWHERE!!
