"Bustin' makes me feel good!"

It's been rumoured for three decades, but there's finally going to be another Ghostbusters movie set in the original universe.

35 years since the first film, it's been confirmed that Jason Reitman – the son of Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II director Ivan Reitman – will continue the legacy and direct the next instalment.

There's already a brand new teaser trailer, which you can watch above.

The clip shows some seriously spooky activity inside a barn, where a tarp uncovers the classic old ECTO-1!

Ghostbusters III is expected in summer 2020, with filming taking place over the next few months.

It won't be related to the 2016 all-female reboot which starred Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig.

While there's no official news that the original cast will return, Dan Aykroyd did say late last year that "there is a possibility of a reunion with the three remaining Ghostbusters". This would mean himself, Ernie Hudson and Bill Murray. Sadly, Harold Ramis died in 2014.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, director Jason said: "I’ve always thought of myself as the first Ghostbusters fan, when I was a 6-year-old visiting the set. I wanted to make a movie for all the other fans.

"This is the next chapter in the original franchise. It is not a reboot. What happened in the '80s happened in the '80s, and this is set in the present day."

"This is very early, and I want the film to unwrap like a present," he said. "We have a lot of wonderful surprises and new characters for the audience to meet."
