Now that the Ghostbusters train has left the station, it shows absolutely no signs of slowing down as Sony's hope for an expanded universe and the major tent-pole franchise for the studio.
After releasing its trailer for Paul Feig's female-driven Ghostbusters reboot last week, Sony has announced that it's currently developing an animated Ghostbusters movie.
In The Hollywood Reporter's article accompanying the news, Fletcher Moules — the up-and-coming animator known for his Clash Of Clans commercial spots — was named as the director for the project.
Ivan Reitman, the producer and co-creator who helped bring the original Ghostbusters to life in 1984 along with Harold Ramis and Dan Aykroyd, is already signed on to help produce this animated feature.
Of course, this wouldn't be the first time the Ghostbusting adventures have been animated. From 1986 to 1991, Sony Pictures Television brought us The Real Ghostbusters featuring the voices of Arsenio Hall, Maurice LaMarche, Frank Welker and Dave Coulier.
It's time to grab your proton packs and accept what's to come. Whether you like it or not, we're going to be seeing a lot more of the Ghostbusters, in many different iterations, in the coming years.
'Ghostbusters,' starring Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon, will be released on July 15.
