Ghostbusters animated movie may still be in the works over at Sony

October 2nd, 2015 by Marc Comments


We reported Waaaaaay back in 2013 that Ghostbusters III was set to (possibly) be an animated movie. We now know that that didn’t happen…


It looks like a Ghostbusters animated movie may be back on track with Tom Pollock and Ivan Reitman producing through their Montecito Picture Company, with Ali Bell and Kristine Belson overseeing for Sony Pictures Animation.

There’s no details on which team the movie will follow – the classic, the reboot or perhaps a whole new team – but word on the nerd street is that it “will follow a similar logline to that of the 1984 original, in which a group of scientists team up to fight off ghosts, using gadgets and gizmos to capture the menacing ghouls who have invaded Manhattan.”

Doesn’t sound like it’ll be a story we will know, so we’e guessing it might be a sequel to the original movie. The idea of a third GB universe seems a little much… even for Sony.

Why not just bring back the Real and Extreme Ghostbusters? The fans would love that!

So we don’t know what to make of this; obviously we’d be excited to see an animated movie of our favourite franchise, but we really hope it doesn’t decide to retell the origin story for the third time.

And for the record, if Reitman isn’t talking to IDW’s Ghostbusters writer Erik Burnham and artist Dan Schoening for design tips, then they’re making a mistake.

Would you like to see a GB Animated movie? Which story do you think it’ll tell? Let us know…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
