Fans of the ‘Ghostbusters’ series can rejoice! A new installment of the franchise is set to hit theaters in 2020. The teaser trailer for the film dropped this week.
Sony Pictures has hired Jason Reitman to direct the project, which is said to not have any ties whatsoever to Paul Feig’s 2016 adaptation. Instead, it will be a continuation from the 1989 sequel ‘Ghostbusters 2.’ It’s rumored that the film will be introducing four new “teenage” busters. The UK Mail is reporting that all three surviving busters will be part of the film.
They interviewed original buster Ernie Hudson, who played Winston Zeddemore, at the For Your Consideration NAACP Image Awards Screening in Beverly Hills. Hudson discussed his friendship with the late Harold Ramis, who played Egon Spengler in the franchise, who passed away in 2014 due to complications from an infection.
Hudson then said “everybody is in,” referencing ‘Ghostbusters 3’:
“I miss [Ramis], but his spirit is there. But Ivan Reitman is there and everybody is in. Now whether the studio will do it, I’m the guy who sits by the phone and waits for the call. So if they call, I’ll answer. If not, I’ve got other stuff that I’m doing.”
