The boys will be back in town again in 2020. Jason Reitman has announced he will be directing a new version of the classic comedy “Ghostbusters.”

Entertainment Weekly broke the news Tuesday night. Reitman, whose father, Ivan Reitman, directed the original movie, said next year’s film will be the next chapter and not a reboot of the film that starred Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson and the late Harold Ramis who died in 2014. 

No plot or casting details have been released, nor has there been any word on if any of the original cast will appear in the new film.

“This is very early, and I want the film to unwrap like a present. We have a lot of wonderful surprises and new characters for the audience to meet,” Jason Reitman told Entertainment Weekly.

One thing that has been released is a teaser trailer by Sony Pictures.
