There’s something strange in the neighborhood again and it does look good. Recently, a teaser for another upcoming “GhostBusters” movie surfaced on the web that shows the original Ecto-1. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Jason Reitman revealed that he will be directing the next film in the franchise. He has an impressive list of films which include Juno, Thank You for Smoking and last year’s The Front Runner. What’s even better is that he is the son of Ivan Reitman, director of the original two films. Ivan will be producing this next film. Jason has yet to confirm the return of original cast members Dan Akyroyd, Bill Murray and Ernie Hudson, but he has assured us that the film will follow the continuity of the original storyline.
Jason Reitman praised the 2016 reboot that starred Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones as a quartet of paranormal investigators/exterminators. For fans, the film fell flat and was jeered accordingly. While for now, we have the original Ecto-1, we can only hope for a faithful return to the franchise and, hopefully, the return of Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz and Winston Zeddmore.
