    GHOSTBUSTERS 2020



    Last night, we learned Up in the Air and Juno filmmaker Jason Reitman has been quietly working on a secret Ghostbusters movie.

    This morning, EW can reveal there’s already a video teaser for the 2020 project.

    Shhhh … it may not be hush-hush anymore, but you’re going to want to put on some earphones and listen closely.

    It begins on a quiet night outside a weather-worn barn. Someone is tinkering on a machine that stubbornly refuses to start.

    As the point of view draws closer, we hear the late Elmer Bernstein’s eerie score from the library scene of the 1984 original. A strand of of ectoplasm dangles from a nearby fence, the tell-tale sign that something supernatural is also lurking nearby.

    Whoever is working on the device finally powers it up, and the off-camera glow of what looks like a burst from a broken proton pack floods the barn and lifts the tarp covering another familiar machine — the rusting back end of the original Ecto-1.

    Reitman shot the teaser hoping to raise rather than answer questions: Whose lonely property is this? What became of Stantz, Spengler, Zeddemore, and Venkman? Why is a vehicle once used to save the world from demonic takeover gathering dust in the middle of nowhere?

    Below is last night’s report, with everything Reitman has told us so far…


    Ghostbusters Resurrected

    Do you believe in UFOs, astral projections, mental telepathy, ESP, clairvoyance, spirit photography, telekinetic movement, full-trance mediums, the Loch Ness Monster and the theory of Atlantis?

    If so, good news — there’s a new Ghostbusters movie in the works.

    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 Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, or Bill Murray will return. Harold Ramis died in 2014.

    “This is very early, and I want the film to unwrap like a present. We have a lot of wonderful surprises and new characters for the audience to meet,” says Reitman, who co-wrote the screenplay with Monster House and Poltergeist remake filmmaker Gil Kenan.

    The all-female Ghostbusters movie that director Paul Feig made in 2016 with Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, Kristen Wiig, and Melissa McCarthy started its story from scratch, unconnected to the earlier films, so it won’t have ties to this new one. “I have so much respect for what Paul created with those brilliant actresses, and would love to see more stories from them. However, this new movie will follow the trajectory of the original film,” Reitman says.

    Reitman, an Oscar-nominee for Up in the Air and Juno, released two films last year — the Charlize Theron motherhood story Tully and the Hugh Jackman political drama The Front Runner.

    He grew up idolizing his dad’s big-budget comedies like Stripes, Twins, and Dave, and says he was just as obsessed with Ghostbusters as any other ‘80s kid.

    “I love everything about it. The iconography. The music. The tone,” Reitman says. “I remember being on set and seeing them try out the card catalog gag for the first time when the library ghost makes them come flying out. I remember the day they killed Stay Puft and I brought home a hardened piece of foam that just sat on a shelf for years. I was scared there was a terror dog underneath my bed before people knew what a terror dog was.”

    Jason, his mother, and sister played panicked residents fleeing the “Spook Central” haunted skyscraper in the first film, but they were ultimately cut.

    A few years later, the boy did get a laugh line in the 1989 sequel, playing a birthday boy who was unimpressed by the Ghostbusters: “My dad says you guys are full of crap.”

    When he began making his own movies, starting with 2005’s Thank You for Smoking, Reitman was often asked in interviews if he’d ever want to make his own Ghostbusters movie.

    “I think I said, ‘There’d be no busting,’” he recalls with a laugh.

    The truth is, he often wondered about making one, too: “I’ve thought about this franchise and it has occupied a piece of my heart for basically as long as I can remember.”

    His father will produce the movie. “It will be a passing of the torch both inside and out,” says Ivan, adding that he’s touched his son wanted to join this part of the family business.

    “It was a decision he had to come to himself. He worked really hard to be independent and developed a wonderful career on his own. So I was quite surprised when he came to me with Gil and said, ‘I know I’ve been saying for 10 years I’m the last person who should make a Ghostbusters movie, but…I have this idea.’ Literally, I was crying by the end of it, it was so emotional and funny.”

    Sony is also developing an animated Ghostbusters film, but that will come out after this new live-action project, and a different team will be involved in creating it.

    “The Ghostbusters universe is big enough to hold a lot of different stories,” Jason says.

    when I saw the post in the other thread last night, I thought it was going to be some fan-made trailer. Still looks low quality for an official teaser, but the article assures me that it's the real deal. Looking forward to see who's involved and what they come up with.

    Ghostbusters is easily in my top 3 movies of all time, so I should be excited about this, but I'm extremely skeptical. With Harold Ramis dead and without assurances that the other actors are on board I'm a bit leery of it. I thought the most recent reboot was an abortion and should have never seen the light of day. If they had started with this I would be way more excited, but after having been burned once I don't think I'll be as hyped about it.

    That being said, the teaser looked cool and got me pumped to see more.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    well, with the Reitmans involved that makes me feel a little better that care will be taken, even if the living principles don't take part (but I hope they do)

    I'm with you. I LOVED the original Ghostbusters. The 2nd one was terrible - but I'd still watch if hungover and too lazy to change the channel on a Sunday AM TBS viewing. The reboot was horrifically awful. Dan Ackroyd said the biggest issue was they went overbudget so lost the opportunity of doing a sequel; what a complete crock of shit. I remember watching the reboot on a plane / someplace free and thinking that it was just plain bad.

    Fingers crossed that this movie does the original justice. There are a lot of talented script writers out there - and the material with this thing is endless - so hopefully those paths cross and the end result is great.
    Winners come and go; legends are forever.

    This movie is the way things should have been done all along. That stupid female version got in the fucking way and left a stain on everything.

    I think it would be cool if they included Oscar somehow. He'd be about 30 years old now.

    Sadly, one of the twins that played him committed suicide a few years ago.

    Ghostbusters II has aged well for me. It still can't compete with the original (what movie can?), but it's still true to the characters and the overall feel of the original. I remember thinking there was a distinct lack of classic lines watching it as a kid, but as an adult I find a lot of it funnier than I did as a kid.

    The problem is that the reboot tainted the original when it didn't have to. The film itself, in a vacuum, took place in a universe where original hadn't happened. So it was a full reboot, yet they used the same logo, the same theme song, and the very first teaser referenced the original events of the first film.

    Perhaps this was sort of a result of expectations. I saw it much later, renting it at home. It wasn't terrible to me. It just wasn't...necessary.

    If they were going to use so much from the original series, they should've just had the original cast as part of an ensemble with newer, younger "ghostbusters" doing the majority of the work. Since fans don't take it as seriously as Star Wars, it could've been sort of like Force Awakens except the returning stars would all have a Harrison Ford-sized role.

    Yeah I would be far more excited and far less skeptical (but still would be) if the reboot hadn't come out. The reboot didn't feel like Ghostbusters to me. Yeah, it had the logo, some of the music, relied on the inside jokes, some of the actors playing cameos, etc., but it didn't feel like a Ghostbuster movie, and their attempt to club me over the head with an agenda didn't help either.

    It will be interesting to see where this project goes depending on the involvement of the surviving cast. It was clear that Bill Murray only appeared because he was the subject of, or was threatened with, a lawsuit. What are the odds he would sign on to this one?

    Besides, the true reunion was in the Ghostbusters video game. It was actually pretty awesome if you haven't had a chance to play it. I would highly recommend it.

    If this movie just served as the catalyst to get Rick Moranis into films again, it will have been worth it.

    Do this movie the wrong way, though, and the brand is damaged forever.

    The 2016 reboot wasn't a Ghostbusters film. It was a Paul Feig film masquerading as a Ghostbusters film. And that has nothing to do with the female cast. In fact I'm pissed that they wasted Kate McKinnon in that film, she could've been great in a proper GB3.

    Hopefully this one rights the ship. I'm very excited about a true GB3.

    They could have a great story, script, decent film, but they'll never have the actors.
    Bill, Dan, Ramis….they're irreplaceable. Just the way they delivered the lines is irreplaceable.
    It's never gonna be the original. It's never gonna be Ghostbusters mania again. I would leave it.
