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.
