Sony Pictures announcing Ghostbusters will be re-released to theaters this August is big news. Merchandise aside, that could be enough. How does the studio behind Ghostbusters put the icing on the marshmallow? Announce something just as big that ghostheads have been pretty much been waiting for since 1999.

This is so important, its been emphasized with a 1990s red font! 😀

Ghostbusters’ is still one of our studio’s most beloved franchises ñ I was lucky enough to work on the release of the film on its first run, so itís a real thrill for me to see that itís still connecting with audiences everywhere.
