At the time he said, “Ivan Reitman’s son Jason has written a beautiful script, I can’t say too much about it but it’s going to get made and hopefully there’ll be some familiar faces. It’s so different from even the first and second (film). This just takes it to a new generation and a new direction that is so warm, heartfelt and indeed, quite scary when you confront some of the issues that are being discussed.”
As the shooting for the upcoming movie is set to begin later next month, we should learn more about Ghostbusters 3 in the coming days. As for Reitman’s surprise, he recently tweeted about an announcement. You can check out the tweet below.
