#Ghostbusters 3 to be 'Love Letter to Ghostbusters'; #GB20 to Film in Calgary, Alberta

Jason Reitman has revealed that he plans to bring the Ghostbusters franchise back to its roots!

“I’m not making the ‘Juno’ of ‘Ghostbusters’ movies,” said the director, while being interviewed on a recent episode of the Bill Burr Podcast (interview below).

From there, Reitman discusses the painstaking lengths he’s willing to go to bring the original look and feel to the new Ghostbusters film. Needless to say, hiring the son of the original director means that Sony is getting a very reverential sequel in 2020.

“This is going to be a love letter to Ghostbusters, said Reitman. “I love this franchise. I grew up watching it. I consider myself the first Ghostbusters fan. I was like seven years old when that movie came out and I love it. I want to make a movie for my fellow Ghostbusters fans.”

He continued by discussing the amount of work that went into creating the short teaser that was released earlier this year. He said, “We went back to the work files for the sound of the proton pack. And we went back to the stems of Elmer Berstein’s score. Just for where it says, in the teaser, ‘Summer 2020,’ we went back and found the original physical vinyl letters they used to create the ‘Ghostbusters’ poster in 1984. Rescanned them and then our titles guys reprinted them. We filmed the titles. Not like in a computer. We shot physical titles with a light and smoke effect because that’s how they would have done it back in the day.”

“We are, in every way, trying to go back to the original technique and hand the movie back to the fans,’ the director concluded.

At this point, if Reitman puts the same effort into creating the finished film as he did into the very short teaser, then fans of the original film will be hard-pressed to find anything to complain about. Who are we kidding? It’s 2019 and there’s always something for fans to complain about!

It's also recently been revealed that Jason is intending to shoot scenes for Ghostbusters 3, code name "Rust City" for 15 weeks on location in Calgary, Alberta beginning on-or-about June 25th!
