Can we stop pretending the original Ghostbusters is a masterpiece?

Can we stop pretending the original Ghostbusters is a masterpiece?

But will original Ghostbusters Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson finally return for the sequel?

Jason Reitman, son of Ghostbusters director Ivan, revealed the news about the upcoming film on Twitter earlier today.

Since what we can probably refer to as Ghostbusters 3 operates in continuity with the first two films, it will be unconnected to Paul Feig's female-led 2016 reboot.

The teaser shows Ecto-1 partially uncovered in an old barn with the familiar Ghostbusters music score playing.

This week, it was revealed that Jason Reitman had been working on Ghostbusters 3 in secret for a while now, helping write a direct Ghostbusters 2 sequel that would follow four teenagers who become new Ghostbusters with the help of an old guy with a odd amount of spectral-themed machinery. "I wanted to make a movie for all the other fans", Reitman told Entertainment Weekly. The interview serves as the director's defense that, as a child on the set during the original films' production, he is technically the film franchise's first fan. It is not a reboot.

Whether or not original cast members Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, and Bill Murray will return is now unknown (Harold Ramis, who portrayed Egon Spengler, passed away in 2014), though the film will be set in the present day and includes new characters. In this image released by Sony Pictures, from left, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Kristen Wiig and Leslie Jones appear in a scene from Ghostbusters. This is all unconfirmed at the moment though, but with a mid-2020 release date, we should be hearing something more concrete soon.

Colin Kaepernick, girlfriend talk Travis Scott's Super Bowl appearance

Warner Turns Right-handed; Slams Gayle for 14 in 3
But he was forced into a stunning mid-innings change when he was struggling to get Gayle away late in his innings. The first ball he faced right-handed he belted Gayle back over the bowler's head for a six.

Scenes in the montage sequence of the Ghostbusters running around NY (and also driving in the Ecto-mobile) were done on the first day, mostly without film permits.

Ghostbusters 3 is now planned for a summer 2020 release.

Well back in November Aykroyd revealed that Ghostbusters 3's script was being written with the original cast. If Oscar is also a part of the film we could see Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, Michael Cera (another Reitman alum), Billy Magnussen or even Ansel Elgort in the part, but there's certainly a plethora of talent out there who would fit that role.

In the words of Dr. Peter Venkman: "I love this plan!"

You may have glimpsed Jason, his mother, and his sister in the original Ghostbusters, as residents fleeing their haunted skyscraper. I remember the day they killed Stay Puft and I brought home a hardened piece of foam that just sat on a shelf for years.

It might be tough for the next Ghostbusters movie to top the original, but if it comes close, then it will probably be considered a success.
