Animated “Ghostbusters” Film Planned

Looks like Paul Feig’s recently wrapped, female-centric, live-action “Ghostbusters” reboot isn’t the only entry in the franchise to look out for.

Heat Vision says that internal discussions are underway at Sony Pictures and Sony Pictures Animation to spawn an animated feature film based on the franchise.

No writers are on board, but it is expected that Ivan Reitman would produce. Feig’s film opens next July.

This follows on from reports earlier this year that the studio created a ‘Ghost Corps’ collective with people like Reitman and Dan Aykroyd exploring ideas of expanding the franchise’s cinematic universe with sequels, prequels, spin-offs, standalones and more.

“Ghostbusters” was previously translated into a popular animated series in the late 1980s.
