Jason Reitman Will Answer His Father’s Supernatural Call(ing)
As screenwriter and director Jason Reitman, son of famed director Ivan Reitman (‘Ghostbusters,’ ‘Stripes,’ ‘Kindergarten Cop,’ ‘Twins’), put it via Twitter yesterday:
Finally got the keys to the car. #GB20

And the keys to what car exactly?
That is how you direct a successful teaser trailer! And the Ecto-1 looks ready for a drive through NYC.
Jason Reitman has stated that ‘Ghostbusters 3’ (the final title is still TBD) will be directly connected to the original ‘Ghostbusters’ cinematic universe. That means the all-female led ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot from 2016 will remain as its own separate entity. That hopefully also means that the original cast will return in more than just entertaining cameos from 2016…? And that hopefully means the story, being written by Jason Reitman and ‘Monster House’ director Gil Kenan, is worthy of bringing the old cast back together.
Apparently, Ivan Reitman thinks so.
“Literally, I was crying by the end of it, it was so emotional and funny,” Ivan Reitman said.
There isn’t much to say right now regarding this still mysterious third entry of ‘Ghostbusters’ except–since comedy is tragedy plus time–that one of the friendly ghosts will hopefully be Harold Ramis’ character, Egon Spengler.
Is that something that is just so damn perfect that somehow it means that it won’t actually be visualized in the right way, like when other beloved nostalgia makes a visit from
the great beyond the past?
Thanks to Sony Pictures, we’ll discover the answer during summer 2020.
