We’re excited to learn more about Jason Reitman’s Ghostbusters movie that was recently announced. HN Entertainment has learned from a source that the new Ghostbusters movie is now eyeing a production start in late spring or summer.
The new film said to be directly connected to the original 1984 film will see a family move back home to a small town. Since the Paul Feig reboot was set outside of continuity there isn’t an expectation those characters will be returning.
Sony and Jason Reitman are also currently casting two of the young leads which include the roles a 13-year-old boy and a 12-year-old girl. The unnamed teenage boy character is described as a conspiracy theorist that is really into fantasy. The pre-teen girl certainly sounds like a Jason Reitman character, for sure, a science kid that has trouble connecting with others on an emotional level, understanding feelings and not be aware how hurtful her comments can be.
A location has yet to be revealed but British Colombia has been a filming location that Reitman has used previously for Juno and Tully. His recent film The Front Runner shot in Atlanta, a locale Sony likes to us on a regular basis for their films. However, upstate New York (Young Adult was shot in New York) or New England (Labor Day was shot in Massachusets) settings for the film could see them use more of Eastcoast locales.
While there have been rumblings from original actor Ernie Hudson that the original actors may be returning that has yet to be made official.
Sony Pictures announced that a release sometime in the summer of 2020.
