Back in March, we reported that production will begin next year on Sony Pictures' Ghostbusters reboot, although longtime director Ivan Reitman will not be at the helm, instead serving as a producer. Sony hasn't announced a replacement director at this time, but Dan Aykroyd recently appeared on NBC's Today show, where he revealed that pre-production will begin this spring.
"It looks like we'll be in pre-production in the spring now, from what I'm hearing. It should be good."
Of course, we've heard similar updates several times in the past, with this long-awaited project drifting through development for a number of years, which was hampered by several ill-fated attempts to get Bill Murray back on board. When Harold Ramis passed away in February, Ivan Reitman decided he would only produce and help Sony find a replacement director. Ruben Fleischer (Gangster Squad, Zombieland) was being eyed to direct in May, but we haven't heard anything regarding his involvement since then.
