Los Angeles - Sony is reportedly developing an animated Ghostbusters movie.
According to The Wrap, the new film will be told from a ghost's point of view and is going into development at Sony Pictures Animation.
Although the studio denied such a move just a few weeks ago, insiders insist that the animated movie will go ahead and writers will soon start work on the project.
The animated TV show The Real Ghostbusters ran from 1986 to 1991 but it is not yet known if the new movie will feature the original supernatural squad from that series and the two films and recognisable elements from such as the original Ecto-1 car which the Ghostbusters used to travel around New York City.
Meanwhile, it was previously revealed that Bill Murray filmed a cameo in the Ghostbusters reboot because he wanted to give it his blessing.
The 64-year-old actor - who played Peter Venkman in Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II - admitted he thought long and hard about working on director Paul Feig's new movie and took on a small role so that everyone would know he approved of it.
Speaking about the film, which stars Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones, he explained: "I thought about it for a very long time. Like, many, many months. No, that's not right. I was seriously thinking about this for years, really.
"It kept eating at me, and I really respect those girls. And then I started to feel like if I didn't do this movie, maybe somebody would write a bad review or something, thinking there was some sort of disapproval on my part).
"I like those girls a lot. I mean, I really do. They are tough to say no to. And Paul is a real nice fellow."
