A New Animated GHOSTBUSTERS TV Series is Being Developed By Ivan Reitman
Sony Pictures is really betting big on the Ghostbusters franchise. They haven't even released their upcoming new film yet, but the studio is already developing a new animated series. The show will be called Ghostbusters: Ecto Force and it is set in the future in the year 2050. Original Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman is spearheading the series, so there's hope it will actually turn out to be awesome.
There aren't many other details known about the series, but the studio is looking to release it sometime in 2018. As many of you already know, this isn't the first time we've seen a Ghostbusters cartoon series. I was a big fan of The Real Ghostbusters, which was released in the '80s. Unfortunately, it's because of that series that Ghostbusters 2 turned out to be more of a cartoony film. They wanted to cater to the kid crowd. Kind of like what they are doing with this new film!
With Reitman on board and leading the charge on this project, chances are it will be a solid series. Also, since the movie is set in the year 2050, we're looking forward to seeing a whole team of new characters with some futuristic ghostbusting technology. I'm curious to see what Reitman is planning for it.
