A New Ghostbusters Movie Is Coming, but There's 1 Thing That Makes It Really Special

  • Popsugar
This week, Entertainment Weekly broke some rather exciting news: there's a new Ghostbusters movie in the works! But there's a really exciting and nostalgic twist attached to this new production: it will be directed and co-written by Jason Reitman. If you're not familiar, his father, Ivan Reitman, directed the original Ghostbusters in 1984, as well as 1989's Ghostbusters II. "I've always thought of myself as the first Ghostbusters fan, when I was a six-year-old visiting the set. I wanted to make a movie for all the other fans," Reitman told EW. Talk about a full-circle moment.

To do you one better, Reitman plans to pick up right where his father left off. "This is the next chapter in the original franchise. It is not a reboot.
