Ghostbusters 3 Teaser

Yesterday came the surprise announcement that Jason Reitman, the Oscar nominated director behind Juno and Up in the Air and the son of original Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman, will be directing a sequel to those beloved original flicks. The long-awaited Ghostbusters 3…at least until they announce an official title. Even more surprising was that Jason had been developing the sequel in secret, co-writing the screenplay with Monster House director Gil Kenan, and that it would actually begin filming in just a few months.

Now, to keep building on that, a teaser video for Ghostbusters 3 has been released. It’s not much, as you would expect from a movie that hasn’t begun filming yet, but it’s definitely a teaser made to strike some nostalgia chords with fans. You can check it out below.

Ghostbusters

Another new Ghostbusters movie is on the way.

But unlike the 2016 reboot starring Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, Melissa McCarthy, and Kristen Wiig, which told its own story and was not connected to the 1984 original and its 1989 sequel, this latest entry in the franchise will be a sequel set in the same universe as the originals which continues that story. So, basically the Ghostbusters 3 fans have wanted for so many years.

It’s also going to be directed by someone with a strong connection to the series, Jason Reitman, whose father Ivan Reitman directed the first two films.

Ivan Reitman Says More ‘Ghostbusters’ Films On The Way

Ghostbusters 2016

Before studios release a big budget tentpole movie, they announce that there are going to be sequels or even spinoffs. Sometimes that even happens long before the actual announcement happens, when a studio says they will be launching a shared-universe franchise. To some extent, it can work. But when a film like Ghostbusters fails to meet studio’s expectations, it can question whether or not it is even worth it to move forward with such a massive project.

Paul Feig‘s Ghostbusters, starring Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, Kristen Wiig, and Kate McKinnon wasn’t the kind of film that Sony was expecting, with the misogynistic threats and trolling that plagued the film throughout the entire marketing campaign. The film’s tepid $244 million box office draw may not be enough to give the studio confidence to green light a sequel. Despite that, Ivan Reitman believes that he has big plans for the Ghostbusters franchise.

Check out what he had to say below.

Twenty years ago, the world beheld the greatest onscreen duo of all time. Not Bogey & Bacall, Abbot & Costello, or even Batman & Robin. No, I’m talking about Michael Jordan and Bugs Bunny. Sunday evening, I took my son to the Fathom Events screening of the 20th Anniversary of Space Jam. The film debuted twenty years ago this week when I was a spry 14 years old. My then 4-year old sister LOVED this movie and nearly wore out the VHS tape we had… yes, we owned the VHS.

Ghostbusters

Whenever a reboot or remake happens, sometimes the original stars appear in some sort of cameo as a nod to its fans. In Paul Feig‘s new vision of Ghostbusters starring Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon, a few of the surviving members of the original film are coming back in a cameo capacity. Dan Aykroyd was the first to be announced, followed by a surprising confirmation of Bill Murray’s participation. Murray was the last person anyone would have thought to have joined this film, mostly because he didn’t want to concede to do a Ghostbusters 3.

Now he is revealing why he decided to be in the new Ghostbusters. Check out his explanation here below.

Ghostbusters

Cameos in reboots are a nice nod to the originals, but don’t happen for all films, and it nearly didn’t happen for the upcoming Ghostbusters. Dan Aykroyd signed on for a cameo role in the new Paul Feig-directed reboot, which is currently in production in Boston. But he won’t be the only original member of the Ghostbusters cast to cameo in the reboot. Reports are coming in that Bill Murray had arrived in Boston last week, to shoot his own cameo appearance.

Ivan Reitman Says ‘Ghostbusters’ Spinoff Rumors “Just Noise”

Ivan Reitman

Recently screenwriter Drew Pearce opened up about laying out the groundwork for a possible mixed gendered Ghostbusters. The Iron Man 3 scribe confirmed that if Sony were to follow through on his Ghostbusters “bible” it would take place in the same universe as the one Paul Feig is directing now. Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt are among the frontrunners to star in the film, with hopes that Anthony and Joe Russo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) will direct.

At first it looked like the film wasn’t even going to happen, with Tatum’s people saying that they’re “not doing that any more,” and Pratt revealing in an interview that such talks were BS. So Pearce’s quotes gave us slight hope that the film is still on.

Now Ivan Reitman, the director of the first two Ghostbusters and a producer of Feig’s reboot, has come out to address these rumors saying that Feig’s is the only new movie in the franchise they are currently working on, and that anything else is just noise. Check out his full quote below.

Baywatch header

The long-gestating adaptation of Baywatch may actually be happening this time. After going through numerous script drafts, Paramount believes that Horrible Bosses director Seth Gordon is the right person to helm the adaptation of the beach-based drama action television series that aired 242 episodes and was on air for 11 seasons. But rather than have the series star David Hassseloff make the slow-motion run on the beach to make a lifesaving rescue, it looks like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will be the one to take his place and lead his team of bikini-clad lifeguards who patrol the sunny sandy beaches of Los Angeles, California. More on this story below.

Ghostbusters Logo Title

Sony already has a reboot of the 1984 classic Ghostbusters in the works, featuring an all-female cast of ‘busters in Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon, but it turns out that project is not their only plan with the franchise moving forward.

After years of rumors of a Ghostbusters 3 being developed by the guys behind the original eventually became the all-female reboot mentioned above, it’s being reported that Sony has actually created a new production company called, quite fittingly, Ghostcorps, led by original Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman and star Dan Aykroyd with the mission of finding branding opportunities based on the original.
