Sony Pictures Animation is developing a Ghostbusters animated feature, according to The Tracking Board.  The film will track the original film’s premise, with a group of scientist using gadgets and gizmos to defend Manhattan from supernatural forces.  It’s at a very early stage, with the studio looking for a screenwriter.

If made, this will be the third new and largely unrelated Ghostbusters movie, with the live action film with all-female stars directed by Paul Feig now well into production (see “Sigourney Weaver in ‘Ghostbusters’”), and a second new film with male protagonists also in development (see “’Ghostbusters’ for the Boys”).
