Jason Reitman To Attend Ghostbusters Fan Fest – Will He Bring New Footage With Him?

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.”

Ghostbusters Fan Fest takes place in California from June 7-8. Information on tickets are available at this link here.

Finn Wolfhard Didn’t Know He Was Auditioning For New Ghostbusters Movie

News broke last month about the casting of our three main leads for Jason Reitman’s new “Ghostbusters” movie. This included Carrie Coon, Grace McKenna, and Finn Wolfhard as the main family spotlighted in the movie, although what their roles will be and what they do in the movie are yet to be determined. We have seen Wolfhard don the proton pack and jumpsuit in season 2 of “Stranger Things”, but it turns out he had no idea he was even involved in the casting process for Ghostbusters until he found out he got the role.

“It’s all secret. It’s like completely, ya know,” Wolfhard said in an interview with MTV. “I didn’t even know what I was auditioning for when I auditioned for it.”

Finn added he had not even read anything yet from the script, and said he read generic lines for the audition that gave nothing away about what the movie could be about.

Regardless, he was very happy to be cast in the film, and I think we are all excited to see what he brings to the table for the spiritual sequel to one of our favorite movies of all time.

Ghostbusters 3, or Ghostbusters 2020, comes out July 10, 2020.

Ernie Hudson Reaches Out To Jason Reitman To Talk Ghostbusters 3

With a new Ghostbusters movie slated for 2020, everyone is trying to figure out who will be in it. Ernie Hudson got all of our hopes up when he claimed everyone was “all on board”, but it turned out that meant support more than it did a confirmation that the original stars were returning to the franchise.

While visiting the set of Spectrum original series “L.A.’s Finest”, the OG Winston Zeddemore was asked by Slashfilm if he had any updates on appearing in the upcoming Ghostbusters 3.

Here is what he had to say:

“I reached out to Jason,” Hudson said. “I’ve talked to Jason. I’ve also had a conversation with Ivan [Reitman] just to congratulate him. They confirmed that the movie is definitely being made, because you know there’s always been rumors with Ghostbusters the last 30 years. What that’ll look like, they did not share.”

“Nobody’s offered me a job, but the reason I wanted to reach out to Jason, I remember him as a little kid on the set of Ghostbusters,” Hudson said. “The fact that he’s stepping into that, I think the fans have been wanting it so no matter what happens, I know it’s going to be a great movie. I really respect him as a filmmaker. Obviously, I’d love to be a part of it but that hasn’t so far presented itself. I know that the movie will be good.”

Hudson did not get any tasty morsels to share with the public about the film unfortunately, but he seems very optimistic about the entire project.

“He didn’t tell me,” Hudson said. “It wasn’t a long conversation but that’s good. Whatever they do, I’m glad they’re doing something. The Ghostbusters fans, I go anywhere in the world, somebody knows I’m there, they’ll come by in their Ghostbuster outfits. For them, I’m very happy it’s happening.”

Ghostbusters 2020 or Ghostbusters 3 (because you know who you’re gonna’ call, but not the name of the new movie) will open in theaters on July 10, 2020.

Ghostbusters 2020 Sequel Has A Teaser Trailer! This Is Not A Drill!

It was only yesterday that news broke of a new Ghostbusters sequel being helmed by Jason Reitman, son of Ivan Reitman AKA the man who made the original film.

As if that was not huge enough, out of nowhere – this teaser dropped into our laps!

While this is not exactly informative in any way of what the movie will be about or who will be in it, there are some very important clues here. When I heard those first cues of that music, it gave me goosebumps. By the end of it, I was practically crying with joy. Frankly, I think you will be too.

This teaser also let us know that we can expect the film in the summer of 2020. What’s another year when we have the promise of a new GB movie?

And for those who are obsessed like me, I cleaned up that shot of the Ecto-1 so you could see it the way it was intended:

She’s a thing of beauty, ain’t she?
