New Ghostbusters will be a love letter to original films

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!
