There's an Animated Ghostbusters Film on the Way

Never mind the AA, the fourth emergency services have to be the Ghostbusters - and they're coming back with even more of a vengeance.

As the internet continues to argue amongst itself about the merits of the forthcoming Paul Feig-directed all-female Ghostbusters film, starring Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, Kirsten Wiig and Chris Hemsworth and due out next year, there's good news for those people who want something more 'traditional'.

Sony has added another Ghostbusters film to its upcoming roster - and this one will be an animated adventure, which will apparently be 'closer in spirit' to the original 1984 movie, which famously starred Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Rick Moranis and Sigourney Weaver.

Many of us grew up with the brilliant Real Ghostbusters cartoon series, which spun-off from the original film and ran from 1986 to 1991, while there was also a sequel - Extreme Ghostbusters - which ran for 40 episodes in 1997. Ivan Reitman, who directed the first two Ghostbusters films is on board to produce alongisde Tom Pollock - hopefully it will be as good as those shows were.

Meanwhile, there could also still be a second live action Ghostbusters film - word on the street is that a Drew Pearce-penned story could still happen, although with Joe and Anthony Russo pencilled to direct, but currently busy with Marvel commitments until 2019, it could be a while yet.

Remind yourself of the glory of The Real Ghostbusters by having a watch below.
