It looks like the upcoming Ghostbusters from Jason Reitman is getting support from Melissa McCarthy, as the film prepares to start filming in a few months time. There’s been wildly mixed reactions from fans of the original films and the 2016 reboot since the project was officially announced earlier in 2019. Now, it looks like McCarthy is firmly planting her flag in the pro-Reitman Ghostbusters camp, which could help add legitimacy to the film.
It was announced back in January that Jason Reitman – son of Ivan Reitman, who directed Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters 2 – would be directing his own Ghostbusters film. The film is set for release in 2020 and due to start filming in June, with attention and curiosity over it exploding when it was reported that the film would ignore the events of the 2016 reboot starring McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon. Instead, the film will take a Jumanji-like approach by focusing on a group of teens who battle the paranormal as the titular Ghostbusters.
