Sony Pictures says that this new Ghostbusters will be going back to its roots and will be the next chapter in the original story.

Sony attempted to reboot Ghostbusters in 2016 with gender-flipped leads, but the costly film disappointed at the box office.

Entertainment Weekly first reported the news. Production begins this summer, but no word yet on the cast.
