The word dropped only a day ago that two-time Oscar nominee Jason Reitman (Juno, Up in the Air) would be directing and co-writing a brand new sequel to the classic 1980s Ghostbusters movies. Movies that were directed by none other than the filmmaker’s father, Ivan Reitman. While the announcement of this sequel – let’s call it Ghostbusters 3 for now, for lack of official title – is still fresh, it turns out the development of this movie is not.
According to a report from Variety, Sony had been working on this project with Reitman for months now already, under the secret codename of Rust City. With the negative way audiences responded to Paul Feig’s 2016 all-female reboot (which this new film will completely ignore), the studio clearly wanted to make sure they had all their proverbial ducks in a row before revealing anything. Well, not only were those ducks in a row, they were already busy filming a teaser trailer! Damn, those are some talented ducks!
As Reitman explained yesterday, the production on Ghostbusters 3 is still in the very early stages and he wants to keep any surprises under wraps for now. With that, it’s not surprising that the teaser (which first debuted on EW) is very light on any footage showing any plot or characters. There is one familiar face though. Check it out below.
Hey, Ecto-1! While there’s not much here, I like the very distinct 80s-vibe
