Later this summer, the first ever Ghostbusters Fan Fest will go down in Culver City, California on the Sony Pictures Lot. Fingers crossed we will be able to attend, and even moreso now that they announced this new guest. Now scheduled to appear at this con is Jason Reitman, son of Ivan Reitman, and director of the new Ghostbusters 2020 film.
In a press release from Wizard World, Reitman was announced to join the roster of guests, which already includes Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson, Maurice LaMarche, Frank Welker, and Ray Parker Jr. among others.
“I am thrilled that my role of Brownstone Boy #2 will finally be given proper recognition. Might also chat about the upcoming Ghostbusters film,” said Reitman.
The big question here is what sort of news will Jason bring with him when he shows up at GB Fan Fest? Will he be able to announce some new cast members, fill us in on which classic stars will join the cast, or could he have some footage to premiere? Chances are we will not know until he actually shows up, but the fans in attendance are definitely going to be in for a treat!
Jeffrey Godsick, EVP, Brand Management and Global Partnerships, Sony Pictures Motion Picture Group said: “We’re excited to be collaborating with Jason Reitman on this new chapter in the franchise. This will be a unique opportunity for fans to get a sneak peek of Jason’s vision for the film. The Ghostbusters Fan Fest is shaping up as a can’t-miss celebration of Ghostbusters and we couldn’t be more pleased that Jason will be such a big part of it.”
John D. Maatta, CEO of Wizard Entertainment said: “We will continue to bring additional value to fans to ensure the greatest Ghostbusters experience imaginable on June 7 and 8 on the Sony Pictures Studio Lot. Adding Jason to Ghostbusters Fan Fest is the next big step and one that fans will be excited to hear about.”
