According to Variety, Sony is in final negotiations with Paul Rudd to play a teacher in the new "Ghostbusters 2020," by Jason Reitman, son to Ivan Reitman who directed the original "Ghostbusters."

Additional cast in talks include Carrie Coon, Finn Wolfhard and Mckenna Grace.

The screenplay for Ghostbusters 2020 was co-written by Jason Reitman and Gil Kenan and plans to shoot the film are expected later this summer.  Ivan Reitman would produce the new installment.

“I’ve been wanting to work with Paul Rudd since my short film opened for ‘Wet Hot American Summer’ at Sundance. I’m thrilled he’ll be joining this new chapter in the original Ghostbusters universe,”  said Jason Reitman.

The studio isn't talking about plot details but sources within Variety explain the story will be an extension of the original “Ghostbusters” and focus on a single mom and her family, with Coon playing the mom and Wolfhard playing her son. It’s unknown how exactly it connects to the original Ghostbusters series. Sigourney Weaver is also rumored to return as Dana Barrett.

I'm eagerly waiting for new stuff but I also hope with a new Ghostbusters film that the cartoon series can be back in print, especially Extreme Ghostbusters.
