We learned through a tweet from the son of the original Ghostbusters movies director that another one is on the way.

Award winning director Jason Reitman posted to Twitter that he "Finally got the keys to the car."

His dad, Ivan, made the first two Ghostbusters movies back in the 80's.

Based on Jason's credentials, I am hopeful this will be a sequel that pays homage to the original classic and does a good job of it... rather than just being a flashy box office money grab.

Here is the article that inspired this conversation...

 LOS ANGELES (AP) _ It's one thing to inherit a vehicle from your dad _ but the reins of a movie? Ivan Reitman is passing on the ``Ghostbusters'' franchise to his son. Jason Reitman is to direct a new installment in the Ghostbusters series for Sony. It's due out next summer. Ivan Reitman directed and produced the original Ghostbusters in 1984 _ and its 1989 sequel. Jason, who has four Oscar nods to his credit _ tweeted last night that he has ``finally got the keys to the car.''
