Right now, the future of the Ghostbusters franchise seems a little up in the air, to say the least. Now, though, Ivan Reitman has moved to discuss his hopes of combining the worlds of both the original movies and last year’s rebooted effort.
Speaking during a Facebook Q&A (as reported by Bloody-Disgusting), franchise producer Reitman explained, “We’re doing a lot of work about where do we go next with Ghostbusters. I think one thing that fans have clearly wanted, and so did I, that somehow we tie the worlds together. I think it was a little awkward that it wasn’t connected, and we certainly heard a lot from everybody out there. So I would definitely want to connect to all of that.”
He then added, “What we’ve been doing a lot of is thinking about the franchise rights for Ghostbusters, because Ghostbusters, that idea doesn’t have to just take place in New York, it can happen over the world. I think it would be really cool to see Korean ghosts or Chinese ghosts. All those greats traditions in the world have all these tales and things those people are afraid of. To have a sort of local group of Ghostbusters that tie with the head office in New York would be fun.”
Whether there’s any further Ghosbusters movies to come, we’ll have to wait and see. It certainly sounds as if those behind the franchise are still keen to do something else, though.
