Ivan Reitman Wants to Connect the 'Ghostbusters' Film Universes

Did you know that this past Thursday was Ghostbusters day? Well, to celebrate the occasion, Ghostbusters 1 and 2 director Ivan Reitman and star ernie hudson sat down for a live Q&A on the GhostCorps Facebook page to chat about the original films, including his idea to connect the Ghostbusters universes. Head on down to watch the entire video from the show!

We’re doing a lot of work about where do we go next with Ghostbusters? I think one thing that fans have clearly wanted, and so did I, [is] that somehow we tie the worlds together. I think it was a little awkward that it wasn’t connected, and we certainly heard a lot from everybody out there. So I would definitely want to connect to all of that.

Reitman on the Ghostbusters franchise rights:

What we’ve been doing a lot of is thinking about the franchise rights for Ghostbusters. Because Ghostbusters, that idea doesn’t have to just take place in New York; it can happen over the world. I think it would be really cool to see Korean ghosts or Chinese ghosts. All those great traditions in the world have all these tales and things those people are afraid of. To have a sort of local group of Ghostbusters that tie with the head office in New York would be fun.

Stay tuned to Dark Universe for more information on this as it happens.
