Our Next Dose of Big-Screen Ghostbusters May Arrive in 2019

Recommended Videos

When Ivan Reitman, director of the original Ghostbusters movies and producer of the recent reboot says that there are definite plans for a new film, our desire is to assume he’s talking about a live-action version with our favorite ladies.

Response to Ghostbusters: Answer the Call was mixed, but there’s no doubt, with the inclusion of the all-female team in video games and comics, that there is a demand for Holtzmann, Yates, Tolan, and Gilbert.  At SDCC yesterday, in a panel devoted to the Ghostbusters franchise, Reitman confirmed that fans could expect a film in the summer of 2019, though he didn’t specify whether it would be live-action or an animated feature.

However, there’s a very important reason to think that it will be live-action. Summer 2019 will be the 35th anniversary of the first Ghostbusters film, and it’s likely that a new film is only one of many celebrations Ghost Corps. has planned:

Said Reitman, “Well, the studio is working on some really nice things. First of all, I can’t believe the movie is still playing and being watched so assiduously… and I can’t believe I’m so old. Yeah, I think there’s going to be a lot of fun, a lot of special things. We’re going to try to tie one of our films close to that date.”

I can’t imagine that they would release an animated film on the anniversary of the Ghostbusters franchise, so I’m optimistic that our new team of paranormal specialists will get another crack at the big screen. What do you think? And what other cool Ghostbusters stuff would you like to see?
