Announcement Teaser for Jason Reitman's Secret 'Ghostbusters' Film

January 16, 2019

Ghostbusters Teaser Trailer

Surprise! Sony Pictures has revealed that filmmaker Jason Reitman has been secretly working on a brand new Ghostbusters movie, officially set for release in the summer of 2020. To go along with the reveal of this news, they've released a very short teaser trailer that Reitman himself shot. It's nothing much, just a re-reveal of the original Ecto-1 hiding out waiting to be found again. Jason is the son of Ivan Reitman, who directed the original two Ghostbusters movies back in 1984 and 1989. Jason tweeted out yesterday: "Finally got the keys to the car." The cast and details on the new movie have not been revealed, only to say that it will continue with the storyline from the first two (and skip right over Paul Feig's female-Ghostbusters movie from 2016). "This is the next chapter in the original franchise. It is not a reboot. What happened in the ‘80s happened in the ‘80s, and this is set in the present day." Can't wait to find out more about this. Check it out.

Here's the first announcement teaser for Jason Reitman's new Ghostbusters movie, found on YouTube:

Ghostbusters Movie

Description from EW: "It begins on a quiet night outside a weather-worn barn. Someone is tinkering on a machine that stubbornly refuses to start… Whoever is working on the device finally powers it up, and the off-camera glow of what looks like a burst from a broken proton pack floods the barn and lifts the tarp covering another familiar machine — the rusting back end of the original Ecto-1." The new Ghostbusters movie is directed by Canadian filmmaker Jason Reitman, of the films Thank You for Smoking, Juno, Up in the Air, Young Adult, Labor Day, Men Women & Children, Tully, and The Front Runner previously. The screenplay is co-written by Jason Reitman and Gil Kenan. Sony Pictures will release Reitman's Ghostbusters in the summer of 2020 - no exact release date is set yet. Shooting will start in the next few months in order to make that release date. Stay tuned for more updates from here. First impression? Who's excited already?

I guess I won't be wrong if I say that Hollywood these last years (and that will continue through many years to come) live from reusing all the franchises they remember and stumble upon from time to time. That's how exciting this is ...

Well in Jason Reitman's defense his father did direct both original movies so this is more like a family heirloom for him, but really a true continuation for fans (Let's hope). But your correct that is Hollywood these days.

I'm not sure what to add. The role of J. Reitman adds something to the production of the film, but I just don't expect much since I just feel continuation of business and not creative logic ...

If you were a studio, would you invest in time/money making a movie that you know will bring return or risk on a new IP? Not sure where all the doubt is coming from. Jason Reitman is a stellar filmmaker. Paul Feig is average.

I'm glad I'm not at any film studio. Oh, I can only imagine what kind of the bestiary that is. What I'm rooting for is the collapse of the studio system in making films and of their business model. So, I don't care very much for their new shiny idea to milk the money in the usual and expected way. Regardless the director. He's just a way to achieve the financial objective. Of course, you do care about it. Which is ok. I just hope I don't agitate you very much by opposing it ...

Ghostbusters was an unknown and risky ip when it was geenlit the first time. Same for Predator star wars, back to the future and so many original ideas. Now, the boat is on the slip.

Believe when seen.

This was a cool teaser! This director is definitely talented and it's cool he's the son of the original director....I just hope it's better than the trash they tried to pull recently. Here's hoping they learned from their mistakes? But I'm not holding my breath....

This is the best chance we've got. If this fails, it is truly dead.

I read a rumor that Jason Reitman is looking for four teenagers for the main roles. So this will probably have a stranger things vibe set in the present day, with I'm assuming cameos from the remaining original cast members. I'll assume one of those teenagers will probably be related to Bill Murray's character or something of that sort.

Oblique on Jan 17, 2019


that would ruin it for me. Why four? Why trying to make the same thing with a younger cast or with all-female cast? Jason, if you read me, I'll cast on you the curse of the "va fail, elaine - caed' mil, folie! glaeddyv dorne aep t'enaid, bunn'droh ithne i'yachus" if you try to surf on nostalgia.

Beats me bro. lol I mean the ghostbusters were originally just 3 guys until they put out that help-wanted advert and my boy Winston Zeddemore got the job.

This ship sailed long ago.. Harold is gone and even with the rest they will be too old and will never live up to the charm of the 1st movie.

Don't be such a sour puss. The originals has small parts to play. The actual movie is a legit sequel to the originals that feature teenagers.

Looks like original cast is returning, so my comment stands
