Ah, I was wondering why Ghostbusters was trending on Twitter today.Invoking the powers of thread necromancy because this is too good. Looks like Blue Checkmark Twitter is getting the tits in a twist because Jason Reitman says that his version will, "Hand Ghostbusters back to the fans."
And thus a new salt mine opened up. Here are a few choice tweets.

This one has to be my favorite. His Twitter bio says that he's a contributor to the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal, but I don't know if he's a fan of GB2016, or mocking the pitifully few fans of that embarrassment.

If the SJW brigade keeps wailing like this, I may go see it because I could use the salt for my popcorn.
NEW GHOSTBUSTERS WILL BE A LOVE LETTER TO ORIGINAL FILMS
9 hours ago by: Mike Sprague
As we all know, director Ivan Reitman’s son Jason will be helming the upcoming GHOSTBUSTERS 3 (or whatever they're calling it) and the new movie will go back to the continuity of the first two films. Last week we passed along new info on two new characters that will be busting ghosts in the upcoming flick, and if you missed that post, you can check it out HERE.
Anyhow, we're all looking forward to this new GHOSTBUSTERS movie with all our horror-hearts. And it seems like we're in good hands as director Jason Reitman was recently speaking with Bill Burr on the comedian's Monday Morning Podcast and said that his movie will be "a love letter" to his father's original film(s) and he just wants to "make a movie for my fellow Ghostbusters fans."
Specifically, Jason Reitman says:
"This is going to be a love letter to Ghostbusters. I love this franchise. I grew up watching it. I consider myself the first Ghostbusters fan. I was like seven years old when that movie came out and I love it. I want to make a movie for my fellow Ghostbusters fans."
Bring it on, I say. I'm sure the man is a true fan, I mean he has a role in GHOSTBUSTERS 2 so how could he not? But I don't know, this still makes me feel all warm inside, like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man roasting on the side of a building. How about you? Let us know below!
As for the plot, the film is said to
"focus on a family who moves back home to a small town. While there, they begin to learn more about who they are and the secrets of the town itself."
That's all we know at the moment, but I'm thinking we can expect to see all of this tie back to the original team of Ghostbusters in some way. But again, who knows? I guess We'll find out come July 10, 2020. Until then let us know how excited you are for this new GHOSTBUSTERS movie below!
When I heard teenager I assumed like 16 or 18, but 13? Ghostbusters kids movie. How bland.Update:
CAPTAIN MARVEL'S MCKENNA GRACE TO STAR IN JASON REITMAN'S GHOSTBUSTERS
4 hours ago by: Kevin Fraser
The cast of Jason Reitman's upcoming GHOSTBUSTERS film is quickly coming together and THR reports that the latest member to join up is Mckenna Grace, the young actress who was most recently seen playing a 13-year-old Carol Danvers in CAPTAIN MARVEL.
RELATED: CARRIE COON & FINN WOLFHARD IN TALKS TO STAR IN JASON REITMAN'S GHOSTBUSTERS
Details on the GHOSTBUSTERS sequel are sparse, but we do know that it will be set in the same universe as the first two films in the franchise. Scripted by Jason Reitman and Gil Kenan, it's been said that the film will focus on four teenagers, one pair younger and the other older, and that the focus will be on one family in particular. Mckenna Grace will play the daughter of Carrie Coon’s single mother, and the younger sister to Finn Wolfhard in the film, with production expected to kick off this summer. Along with CAPTAIN MARVEL, you may also recognize Mckenna Grace from I, TONYA, Young Sheldon, and The Haunting of Hill House. She's also set to star in the upcoming ANNABELLE COMES HOME. the latest installment of THE CONJURING franchise, as the daughter of Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga's Ed and Lorraine Warren.
Obviously, I would personally, love to see Murray return for this new film. But that kind of goes without saying, right? If Murray does take on a role in the new movie, he will be joining a cast that currently includes Carrie Coon as a single mother, with Finn Wolfhard as her son and the newly announced Mckenna Grace as her daughter. As for the plot, the film is said toThis franchise paid for my son’s college. We made this thing. We are the caretakers of it. It’s a great thing and it was a really fun movie to make. It’s a real movie with some really funny stuff in it. Danny [Ackroyd], Ernie [Hudson], Harold [Ramis], Rick Moranis, Annie Potts — they’re some of the coolest people and they had real careers. They treat people well. They really understand what it is to be a movie actor. It’s a complete collaboration.
That's all we know at the moment, but I'm thinking we can expect to see all of this tie back to the original team of Ghostbusters in some way. But again, who knows? I guess We'll find out come July 10, 2020.focus on a family who moves back home to a small town. While there, they begin to learn more about who they are and the secrets of the town itself.
NICE! GHOSTBUSTERS 3 WILL USE MECHANICALS AND PUPPETS OVER CGI
7 hours ago by: Mike Sprague
I don't know about you but I'm super excited for director Jason Reitman’s upcoming GHOSTBUSTERS 3 (or whatever they're calling it). Not only will the new movie go back to the continuity of the first two films, and now we have word via Dan Aykroyd himself that Reitman's new GHOSTBUSTER movie is all set to feature more mechanicals and puppets than CGI. Sounds good to me! Specifically, he says:
So what’s the budget?I’m always urging to use puppets. I’m always urging to go back to the mechanicals. But CGI is so efficient and easy to use but I think that all of us are on board with the idea of maybe doing mechanicals and puppets where we can.
Okay, so less than $100 million, but much more than $50 million... Huh. Whatever the budget ends up being, I'm already set to line up outside my local multiplex come opening night. Especially knowing the powers that be behind the scenes plan to do mechanicals and puppets over CGI where we can.It’s definitely going to be way under $100 (million). I would think. It can’t be $30 (million), $50 (million) would be stretching it.
How excited are YOU? let us know below!
The cast currently includes Carrie Coon as a single mother, with Finn Wolfhard as her son and the newly announced Mckenna Grace as her daughter. Original GHOSTBUSTERS star Bill Murray says he's totally up for returning for this new film... if Reitman ever bothers to ask. As for the plot:
The film is said to focus on a family who moves back home to a small town. While there, they begin to learn more about who they are and the secrets of the town itself.
DAN AYKROYD HAS WRITTEN A GHOSTBUSTERS PREQUEL CALLED GHOSTBUSTERS HIGH
11 hours ago by: Cody Hamman
Director Jason Reitman, son of GHOSTBUSTERS and GHOSTBUSTERS II director Ivan Reitman, will soon be going into production on a sequel to his father's films that is set to star Carrie Coon, Finn Wolfhard, and Mckenna Grace as a family that has mysterious ties to the previous films. Speaking with 660 News, original GHOSTBUSTERS co-writer/co-star Dan Aykroyd, who will be serving as a producer on the new film, talked a bit about what the younger Reitman has in store for us - and where the GHOSTBUSTERS franchise might go in the future.
Aykroyd said that Jason Reitman and Gil Kenan have
In previous interviews, Aykroyd has expressed displeasure with Paul Feig, director of the 2016 GHOSTBUSTERS reboot, and the fact that the budget of that film was out of control. Aykroyd shifts the blame from Feig to himself in this interview and praises the work that film's stars did, saying he should have kept a closer eye on the budget as a producer. Because the reboot only made $229 million worldwide on a budget of $144 million, the budget of Reitman's film will be much lower - "as little as we can spend".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 ... 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."
Aykroyd has plans for more GHOSTBUSTERS projects beyond Reitman's film, and has even already written the script for a prequel that he calls GHOSTBUSTERS HIGH, which would center on teenage versions of the characters Ray Stantz, Egon Spengler, and Peter Venkman (who were played by Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, and Bill Murray in the original films). The story would begin when
Aykroyd reiterates that GHOSTBUSTERS HIGH would be "way, way down" the line - we probably have to see how Reitman's movie is going to do first, and if there are going to be sequels to that one.they meet in New Jersey in 1969 and we’re looking to do that as probably a glorified feature or pilot within the next maybe five years…. And it would lead to a television project and I thought of (Jason Reitman) immediately for that. It’s on his desk but that’s years away from the current project. But it’s a neat idea for a prequel. Imagine casting the three characters as teenagers!"
The idea for GHOSTBUSTERS HIGH goes back at least a year and a half, as Aykroyd mentioned it in an interview with CinemaBlend in late 2017. When asked if there was any chance we could someday see a live action GHOSTBUSTERS series on Netflix, Aykroyd replied,
As it turns out, he really wants to pursue that idea.Yes. Absolutely. Sure. Sure. I can see several possibilities there. You know? Take a cue from these guys in Stranger Things and maybe have the Ghostbusters in high school or something."
How do you do a prequel when the Ghostbusting only began in the first movie and they hadn’t all met yet???More Ghostbusters related news:

GHOSTBUSTERS 3 DIRECTOR TEASES BIG SURPRISE HAPPENING THIS WEEKEND

I don't know about you but I'm super excited for director Jason Reitman’s upcoming GHOSTBUSTERS 3 (or whatever they're calling it). Not only will the new movie go back to the continuity of the first two films, and is all set to feature more mechanicals and puppets than CGI. Sounds good to me! And today we have word from Reitman himself that there is a "little surprise" for the film coming this weekend.
Specifically, Reitman tweeted out:
Now I can't help but think this is going to be a new trailer. But then again, Reitman does include a video of Bill Murray in his tweet so maybe he will be announcing Murray has finally joined the flick. Or maybe it's not anything much to report about... that could happen. Guess we'll see this weekend!Working on a little surprise for this Saturday’s Ghostbusters Fan Fest. See you on the lot. #GB84

JASON REITMAN HAS UNEARTHED LOST FOOTAGE FROM THE ORIGINAL GHOSTBUSTERS
24 hours ago by: Cody Hamman
So this is the surprise Jason Reitman said he was getting ready to show to fans at the Ghostbusters Fan Fest in Los Angeles this past weekend. Working with Sony as he prepares to go into production on his own GHOSTBUSTERS film, Reitman asked the studio if he could look through the dailies for the original GHOSTBUSTERS, which was directed by his father Ivan Reitman (as was GHOSTBUSTERS II)... and while going through this old footage, he made an "extraordinary" discovery. He told the audience at the Fan Fest,
Reitman, joined on the stage by his father, then offered a sample of that cool, extraordinary stuff - as Slash Film describes it, it was "alternate takes, outtakes and other never-before-seen" GHOSTBUSTERS footage that has been sitting in storage since 1984....we found (the dailies). They were in a mine in Kansas, and we shipped the boxes to Burbank. And we’ve been going through the footage for reasons I cannot tell you, but along the way we found some really cool stuff."
Slash Film has video of the presentation, but the footage was just shown on a couple screens on stage, so it can only be seen from a distance, with the sound coming through the speakers at the event.
While it's great that long-lost footage has been located, what adds a whole other level of intrigue to this situation is Reitman's comment that he can't tell us right now why he has been going through that footage. That seems to indicate that it could somehow be important to what he's doing with his own GHOSTBUSTERS movie.
