Jason Reitman Working On A Secret Ghostbusters Movie
Ghostbusters fans may finally be getting the sequel they’ve clamoured for for years. It was leaked yesterday that Jason Reitman is working on a new Ghostbusters project that is being kept very hush hush as he works towards a summer 2020 release.
Variety broke the news yesterday that Reitman is taking over from his father Ivan who directed the original two Ghostbusters movies in 1984 and 1989. Retiman has co-written the script, and plans to start shooting the film this summer. While not much is known about the project, it is being said that the film won’t be connected to the 2016 film that bombed at the box office, and is said to be a direct sequel to the original pair of films. It’s also not known if the original remaining cast members, including Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd, would be reuniting for the project either. Variety also learned however that Reitman has begun testing teenagers for four mystery roles. Currently the film is using the fake title “Rust City” to keep the project under wraps until it is officially announced.
Reitman has never made a film of this nature before, instead focusing on lower budget films like Up in the Air, Tully and last year’s The Front Runner. Ghostbusters fans have been hoping for a sequel to the original film for 30 years, and if it happens, they will be happy to hear the phrase “Who Ya Gonna Call” repeated over and over again.
