“We want to expand the Ghostbusters universe in ways that will include different films, TV shows, merchandise, all things that are part of modern filmed entertainment,” director Ivan Reitman told Deadline.
“This is a branded entertainment, a scary supernatural premise mixed with comedy. Paul Feig’s film will be the first version of that, shooting in June to come out in July 2016. He’s got four of the funniest women in the world, and there will be other surprises to come," he continued.
The second film is said to build on the first, and it sounds like everyone is hoping this turns into a successful, ongoing franchise.
Drew Pearce, who wrote Iron Man 3 and Mission Impossible 5, is said to be writing the picture, while Channing Tatum may be playing one of the Ghostbusters.
