Soon our streets will run green with ectoplasm! You may have heard something about a little indie remake of Ghostbusters, which will star Leslie Jones, Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, and Kate McKinnon, and come out on July 15th. But now Sony has also announced a new animated series for 2018! The show has original GB director Ivan Reitman on board as a producer, but there’s no word of other casting yet. Presumably none of the current stars will be involved, because according to EW, the show will follow “a new generation of Ghostbusters in the year 2050.” Ghostbusters in the future! Maybe even… dare we hope? I’m afraid to even say it out loud, but…Ghostbusters in space?
As some of you will no doubt remember, the Ghostbusters have previously graced the small screen in The Real Ghostbusters and Extreme Ghostbusters, both of which sustained the snarky humor of the films (while also making Slimer a major character for some reason?) so hopefully this newest iteration will be a fun addition to the GB universe. And if it’s in the future, perhaps we’ll get more science fictional ghostbusting?
