Just to be clear, the only Ghostbusters project that currently in the works, as far as we know, is Jason Reitman's upcoming sequel to the original classic film, which begins filming soon and will be released next year. We've also heard rumors that a brand new animated movie was also being discussed, and now Ghostbusters co-writer/star Dan Aykroyd is teasing another project that may possibly happen as a '60s-set prequel!
"I’ve written Ghostbusters High where they meet in New Jersey in 1969 and we’re looking to do that as probably a glorified feature or pilot within the next maybe five years," Aykroyd teased during an interview with 660 City News. "And it would lead to a television project and I thought of [Jason Reitman] immediately for that."
He added, "It’s on his desk but that’s years away from the current project. But it’s a neat idea for a prequel. Imagine casting the three characters as teenagers!"
Speaking about the future of the franchise, Aykroyd also noted, "We have at least one or two other concepts for the Ghostbusters and then we’ll look at doing the prequel, which will be a perfect button on all we’ve done up to that point."
