Essentially a two-player light gun arcade, players fight the army of the Gundead while unlocking weapons alongside a friends. The pixelated horror title can be played on PC and major consoles when it releases sometime in 2020.
In January, EW broke the news that Reitman is directing and co-writing a new Ghostbusters movie set in the same world as the 1984 original. "I wanted to make a movie for all the other fans". "My father is greatest storyteller I know, and made movies that defined my childhood, so the idea of being a director myself was a very scary decision". Originally, the story for the movie revolved around a 12-year-old girl with a proton pack.
Speaking to Parade magazine, Weaver said: "I knew [Ghostbusters] would be big". But since then, the idea has grown and revolves around a family.
The sequel has quickly come together since it was suddenly announced a the beginning of the year, with Reitman even shooting a teaser to announce the project. Ghostbusters will release on 10 July, 2020.
