The Animated Version

Time to work all the variations of a well-loved franchise.

An animated Ghostbusters feature film is in the works at Sony, according to The Tracking Board.

The animated action-comedy will be produced by Tom Pollock and Ivan Reitman and Sony Pictures Animation's Ali Bell and Kristine Belson will also be on hand to oversee it. Reitman, directed and produced the first two live-action films: 1984's Ghostbusters and 1989's Ghostbusters II. He's also serving as a producer on Paul Feig's all-female reboot, too.

Not much is known about the plot of the animated feature or the characters that will be used. Tracking Board and The Wrap both claim that the premise won't deviate from the original Ghostbusters: A group of scientists get together to battle some supernatural entities in New York. ...

Mr. Reitman, of course, was heavily involved with the animated hybrid Space Jam, and his son Jason is in the process of directing and animated feature at DreamWorks Animation.

Now that animation is respectable and, you know, lucrative, there is no shame to being involved in it.
