Update: Reitman has tweeted out a teaser trailer for the movie showing the original car.

The original story follows:

Something strange is once again brewing in the neighborhood, but don’t worry – somebody already called Jason Reitman to handle it. In an exclusive interview with Entertainment Weekly, the director announced that he is working on a new Ghostbusters movie, which will continue the story of the original two films.

Jason Reitman has directed a number of movies over the years including Thank You For Smoking, Juno, and last year's The Front Runner. In this case, however, his most significant tie to the franchise is his father, Ivan Reitman, who directed the first two Ghostbusters films and will produce the new one as well.

Jason Reitman isn’t saying yet if Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, or Ernie Hudson will be returning in the new movie, but told Entertainment Weekly, “We have a lot of wonderful surprises and new characters for the audience to meet.”

Reitman also praised the 2016 Ghostbusters reboot in the interview, while making it clear fans shouldn’t expect any cameos from the new crew. “I have so much respect for what [director] Paul [Feig] created with those brilliant actresses, and would love to see more stories from them. However, this new movie will follow the trajectory of the original film.”

The new Ghostbusters is currently slated for release next summer from Sony Pictures.
