An untitled animated Ghostbusters movie is set to be produced by Columbia Pictures and Sony Pictures Animation in association with Ghost Corps and The Montecito Picture Company, and will be distributed by Sony Pictures Releasing.
The movie is set to be from a ghost's perspective.
In October 2015, it was announced that Reitman will produce an animated movie for Sony Pictures Animation, with Fletcher Moules overseeing the project as both animator and director. In October 2017, it was reported that the movie would be told from the perspective of a ghost. In January 2019, it was reported that the film will begin production following Ghostbusters: Afterlife's release.
- The movie has been in development since 2015, while the reboot was still being made.
- It is possible that the movie's development might depend on the success of Ghostbusters: Afterlife, a direct sequel to the original two movies.
- It is rumored that the movie might be animated by the same crew as Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and The Mitchells vs. The Machines, as Sony attempted to patent the animation techniques in December 2018, with the Ghostbusters rumor sparking in January 2019.
- The movie was originally intended to come out in 2019 before Ghostbusters: Afterlife had any further development/production.
