And who better to deal with “Ghostbusters” than a Reitman? Well, Jason Reitman to be exact, who takes over directorial control from his father, Ivan (who remains as a producer), teaming with Gil Kenan to script an adventure that explores the world of ghostbusting, with focus primarily placed on the family business nature of the gig.
