Ghosbusters: Ecto Force Announced As Sony Updates Animation Offerings

Real-ghostbustersWith the immanent arrival of a new Ghostbusters movie, Sony has announced a new animated series to go with it. Well, sort of. Variety reports the studio has announced it will release Ghostbusters: Ecto Force, a series about a “new generation” of Ghostbusters set in the far off year of 2050. It could be set in either film series or even follow up Extreme Ghostbusters, though the latter is unlikely. The program, however, will likely debut in 2018 with original Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman “shepherding” the project.

Sony also announced they have secured the directing talents of Samurai Jack creator Genndy Tartakovsky for a third Hotel Transylvania film. He directed both of the previous entries, but also expressed a desire to move on from the Adam Sandler series.

Lastly, Bob Persichetti will direct the currently untitled Spider-Man animated film. The script, by Christopher Miller and Phil Lord is rumored to focus on the Miles Morales Spider-Man. It is currently scheduled to hit theaters on December 21st, 2018.
