OMG sdfjkhksdfioj GHOSTBUSTERS!!!
It's a Wednesday, it's humpday on the third week on January. You don't expect to wake up to anything other than a gloomy grey sky and another terrifying credit card bill in the post as a result of your December excesses, but this Wednesday was very different.
None of us were prepared, none of us were expecting it, but we awoke this morning to find #Ghostbusters trending on Twitter and not because a bunch of anti-feminist movie puritans were back on their soapbox but because the announcement that Ghostbusters fans have been waiting for for 30 years has just landed.
Yep, that's right, 30 years after the release of 'Ghostbusters 2' in 1989 it has finally been announced that a new movie set in the same universe is coming. The announcement wasn't just the normal wishy-washy story that we've seen for the last three decades that "Dan Aykroyd is working on a script for Ghostbusters 3", the news posted this morning is that Sony Pictures have named a director, announced a released date and stated that filming will start in a few months.
As if that wasn't enough for one day, just hours later a teaser trailer featuring music from the iconic Elmer Bernstein soundtrack to the 1984 movie was released and Ghostbusters fans around the world basically flipped out.
There's no way you don't already know this but in case you've been out of town witnessing an undersea, unexplained, mass sponge migration then here's everything we know about the third canon Ghostbusters movie so far...
- The movie will be released in Summer 2020
- Jason Reitman will direct and co-write the movie
- Shooting for the movie begins in the "next few months"
- No plot or cast as been revealed
That's right, we're not talking about a movie due for release in the distant future, this film is set for release NEXT YEAR and Jason Reitman has been lined up as the director by Sony Pictures.
We know the movie is going to be set in the original Ghostbusters universe, but not much else is known about the plot at this point.
Original Ghostbusters stars Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and Bill Murray cameoed in the 2016 reboot, so there's a chance they might reunite in some form for the 2020 movie, but no cast details have yet been announced.
Jason Reitman? That name sounds familiar?
Movie fans might recognise Jason's name as the director of films such as Up in The Air, starring George Clooney, Juno, featuring Ellen Page and Front Runner which is currently on release. But to Ghostbusters fans, that surname is very significant.
Jason's father is Ivan Reitman, who directed the original Ghostbusters in 1984 and Ghostbusters II in 1989. Jason tweeted "Finally got the keys to the car" in reference to taking over the franchise from his father.
80s Horror Reboots
Jason isn't alone in taking over the realms of a 1980s horror/paranormal film from his directing father. Max Landis, son of John Landis, is currently working on a remake of his father's horror-comedy from 1981 'An American Werewolf in London'. The original film was famous for combining state of the art werewolf transformation effects, some genuinely shocking moments, with some great comedy scenes too.
Here's hoping these reboots deliver on the quality and entertainment value the originals gave us. If not, who you gonna call?
