Reitman: Next Ghostbusters Will Start Shooting In 2015

We're willing to believe you.

Source: ‘Ghostbusters’ A Go For Early 2015; Death Of Pal Harold Ramis Prompts Ivan Reitman To Turn Over Directing Reins

With Sony currently announcing their advances into VR technology, there is news of something else Sony related. In an interview with Deadline, director Ivan Reitman announced that there are plans to start shooting the next Ghostbusters movie in early 2015.

The next Ghostbusters film is based on a draft by Etan Cohen and is may have the original team in a very minor role.

“I’m not going to say how many Ghostbusters there will be in the new cast, but we are determined to retain the spirit of the original film, and I am pleased that all of this seems to have happened organically,” he said. “I’m hoping we can get started by the fall, set in New York, but given the logistics and the stuff that happens, the beginning of 2015 seems more likely.”


Reitman will not be assuming the role of director again for the next movie. Instead, he will serve as producer and help to pick the director for the film. The passing of Ghostbusters co-writer and friend Harold Ramis, had an influence in his choosing not to direct the film.

“When I came back from Harold’s funeral, it was really moving and it made me think about a lot of things. I’d just finished directing Draft Day, which I’m really happy with and proud of. Working on a film that is smaller and more dramatic was so much fun and satisfying. I just finally met with Amy and Doug Belgrad when I got back. I said I’d been thinking about it for weeks, that I’d rather just produce this Ghostbusters."


We'll see how this pans out. Attempts to restart the Ghostbusters franchise have been talked about before.
