That didn’t take long! The new movie was just announced last night, but a Ghostbusters teaser is now already online via Jason Reitman’s Instagram account. The magazine says director and co-writer Jason Reitman shot the teaser hoping to raise rather than answer questions: “Whose lonely property is this? What became of Stantz, Spengler, Zeddemore, and Venkman? Why is a vehicle once used to save the world from demonic takeover gathering dust in the middle of nowhere?

The new Ghostbusters movie, opening in theaters Summer 2020, is set in the world of the original two films, which were directed by Jason’s father, Ivan Reitman. “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,” said Jason Reitman.
Filming is expected to start in a few months and Reitman is casting four teens for the movie, two boys and two girls. “This is very early, and I want the film to unwrap like a present. We have a lot of wonderful surprises and new characters for the audience to meet,” added Reitman, who co-wrote the screenplay with Gil Kenan.
