Ghostbusters fans, rejoice! A sequel is planned, for the original Ghostbusters – set in the same universe as the original films – with Jason Reitman set to direct.
Rumors about a follow-up to Ghostbusters II have been around for some time… Dan Akroyd teased fans about a sequel, as early as November. “This is the next chapter in the original franchise,” said Jason Reitman. “It is not a reboot. What happened in the ’80s happened in the ’80s, and this is in the present day.” Bill Murray has kept mum.
There are no details on whether the original cast members will return, but the movie is set to be released in the summer of 2020. Of course, we lost our fellow Chicagoan (and Second City alumnus), Harold Ramis, in February of 2014.
