Director Jason Reitman has confirmed that he will be helming the new “Ghostbusters” sequel, taking up the reins from his father, Ivan, who directed the 1984 original.
“Finally got the keys to the car. #GB20,” the younger Reitman tweeted. Jason Reitman will also co-write the film, which will be “set in the world that was saved decades previously by the proton pack-wearing working stiffs in the original 1984 movie.” An all-female cast “Ghostbusters,” directed by Paul Feig, was released in 2016, and was panned by critics and audiences alike.
Reitman was nominated for Oscars for “Juno” and “Up in the Air” and also directed two films that were released last year, “Tully” and “The Front Runner.”
The new “Ghostbusters” is reportedly set to be released in summer 2020.
