Reitman is the son of original Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman, who had helmed the first two features. As per reports, Reitman weighed in on the subject sating he has always considered himself the first Ghostbusters fan when the six-year-old him would visit the sets of the film. “This is the next chapter in the original franchise. It is not a reboot. What happened in the ‘80s happened in the ‘80s, and this is set in the present day,” added the director.

The teaser, clocking in at 45 seconds, does not reveal much. However, the psychedelic sparks in the haunted garage and the famous Ghostbusters logo go a long way in suggesting that new film may well have the same essence. Reports add that the new feature will be connected to the 1984 sequel and will pick up the narrative thread from that point, instead of being connected to the 2016 film.

The shoot feature may begin in summer 2019 with Sony Pictures planning a summer 2020 release. Watch the teaser here.
