Despite the positive reaction to the 2016 Ghostbustes reboot the film did not do well at the box office and the studio lost faith in the series, but director Jason Reitman has just been confirmed to write and direct a new film in the franhise.
The director, son of Ivan who directed the originals, has a number of acclaimed films under his belt and has been a fan for as long as their have been Ghostbuster.
The film will be a direct sequel to 1989's Ghostbusters II and will have no connection to the 2016 female led movie by director Paul Feig.
We hope the reboot does get a sequel at some point as that was a good film despite he reviews and box office receipts, but a Ghostbusters movie in any form is a good thing and we look forward to this.
Summer of 2020 is the expected release date so not long to wait.
