The movie is directed by Jason Reitman, who is the son of original Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman. Jason talked to IGN about the upcoming installment of the movie and stated, “Historically, Ghostbusters movies were always about people going into business. It was about people starting a ghostbusting business together. I suppose I knew immediately from the beginning that I wanted to make a movie about a family.” He continues, “This is a movie about the Spengler family. And the Spengler family is disconnected. This movie is about why they’ve been estranged all these years.”
