An animated Ghostbusters film is in the works at Sony

10.01.2015

Another day brings yet another GHOSTBUSTERS film over at Sony. With the release of Paul Feig's take on GHOSTBUSTERS still many months away, The Wrap reports that Sony is already putting another GHOSTBUSTERS film into development, except this time, it will be an animated film from Sony Pictures Animation. At the moment there are no writers on board, but it's expected that Ivan Reitman would be involved as one of the producers.

Sony will soon begin hearing takes from writers, and The Wrap's insiders say that the story could be told from a ghost's point of view this time around. As this potential project is still in the very early stages, lets take all of this with a pinch of salt; but, as Sony seems set on turning the GHOSTBUSTERS into their next big franchise, I'd imagine that another film set in Paul Feig's GHOSTBUSTERS universe featuring a new team of scientists battling the supernatural is inevitable.

Much of the cast of the original film have turned up for cameo appearances in Paul Feig's film, including Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Annie Potts, and Sigourney Weaver, which doesn't really leave a lot options for any new cameos in the sequels. Run and hide, Rick Moranis! Run and hide! GHOSTBUSTERS will debut on July 15, 2016.

I know many of you are lukewarm on GHOSTBUSTERS, but is an animated GHOSTBUSTERS film more to your liking?

I aint luke warm, I want to see everything Ghostbusters!

I'm looking forward to seeing the female Ghostbusters...what's the deal with hitting on this new movie? So what if it aint the originals, those guys are waaaay too old, their time passed, they had a window of opportunity and they missed it, now its time for a new generation and I'm all for this and the animated one.

I loved all the older Ghostbusters cartoon, but after playing Ghostbusters: The Video Game (or Ghostbusters III, as it is) I was completely swayed by the idea of an animated sequel (or mini-series) of adult animation starring the original cast. That way most of them would definitely come back for it (if they were happy to voice the game, why not?) and the cast could still look like they did in the 90's. However now Harold Ramis is dead, that ship has sailed and I'm simply glad I've got the

2d vs 3d CGI

I'm hip to this if its traditionally animated 2d, I'd be lukewarm at best if it was cranked out in CGI.

I totally loved the old cartoon series and Extreme Ghostbusters when it came out. Thank God I'm not the only one. I kind of wish we get a live action TV series of Extreme instead.

Extreme Ghostbusters was fun, right? Too bad it only had a short run but still a fun series though.

You know, I love the films but I was actually introduced to ghostbusters through the animated show as a kid, which I really liked. If this is about the original characters with Murray, Aykroyd, and Husdon doing the voices, I'd gladly see that.

You're right, the animated Ghostbusters series was pretty decent.

I guess I'm just so jaded from the behavior of Feig and the cast towards critics that I have a bad taste in my mouth towards anything Ghostbusters at this point.

Fair enough Moat Man. I can't really blame you. If this animated film isn't planning to be connected to the original films, then all interest I have in this is gone.
