'Ghostbusters' Animated Movie In Development?

Whole lotta Ghostbusters on the big screen if true.

If you're a fan of the Ghostbusters it looks like you'll be getting a lot of that IP. The big news started with the all-female Ghostbusters reboot, and was followed a few months later by the news of a separate male-centric Ghostbusters flick. Well, if this rumor is true, it looks like there will be another Ghostbusters film, this time in animated form.

Little is known about this project, but it will be produced by Tom Pollock and Ivan Reitman, along with Ali Bell and Kristine Belson from Sony Pictures Animation. A search for screenwriter is said to be in progress. The premise appears to be similar to the original movie involving:

"a group of scientists team up to fight off ghosts, using gadgets and gizmos to capture the menacing ghouls who have invaded Manhattan."


The Ghostbusters have appeared in animated form before, based on the characters in the original movie, on the small screen. The Real Ghostbusters (there was another series named Ghostbusters based on the live-action television show The Ghost Busters that took the adjective-less title) ran from 1986-1991, and in it's third season ran in an hour-long block as Slimer! and the Real Ghostbusters. A spin-off cartoon, Extreme Ghostbusters, ran in 1997 as sort of a Ghostbusters "The Next Generation" show.

Could the Ghostbusters really be forming their own "Cinematic Universe"? Stay 'tooned.
