First of all, I’d like to apologize on all the ink that’s already been spent on this story involving Jason Reitman, the director of the upcoming Ghostbusters 3. The filmmaker recently made some comments on a podcast, and because we live in the age of the internet, those have been interpreted by some to be sexist, especially since the recent Ghostbusters reboot was lambasted by many fans far ahead of its own release.

The comment in question was Reitman saying that they were trying to give the movie back to the fans and that they were “not making the June of Ghostbusters movies.” To some, it may seem like he’s implying that the female aspect is what was the main problem with that first movie, when in reality, he seems to be saying that it won’t be a film that is off-tone from the original. And I’m pretty confident he referenced Juno since he directed that little gem.

Ghostbusters 2016 director Paul Feig has since come to Reitman’s aid, saying:

“Jason was a supporter of mine at a time when I couldn’t get movies made. He has always been a true gentleman to me and a supporter of Ghostbusters: Answer the Call. I can’t wait to see his take on the Ghostbusters universe. Big love and respect to you, Jason. Your fan, Paul”

So there you have it. There’s nothing to see here. I’m sorry that I gave this story more airtime than it deserved already, but I just wanted to go ahead and close this box so that there was some closure.
