Last year’s Sony’s all-female reboot of Ghostbusters may not have been as successful at the box office as one would have expected. However, Ivan Reitman, who directed the original two movies and produced the reboot, claims that future series developments are still continuing.

At San Diego Comic-Con 2017, Reitman revealed some details and put some worries to rest at a panel on all things Ghostbusters. He pointed out that he was still overseeing the development of both animated and live-action Ghostbusters movies. Furthermore, the next movie is planned for release in summer of 2019 for a rather special reason.
The very first and original Ghostbusters was released of June of 1984, meaning 2019 would mark the film’s 35th anniversary. Keeping in mind this celebration and milestone, Reitman has stated:
Well, the studio is working on some really nice things. First of all, I can’t believe the movie is still playing and being watched so assiduously […] and I can’t believe I’m so old. Yeah, I think there’s going to be a lot of fun, a lot of special things. We’re going to try to tie one of our films close to that date.
But, as of now, the only thing confirmed is that a Ghostbusters film is slated for 2019 released. What we don’t know is if it will be an animated movie or live-action, and if live-action, whether or not the cast of Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones would be returning.
