LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Ivan Reitman, who directed the first two "Ghostbuster" movies in the '80s, is gearing up to direct the third installment in the series.

Reitman has been developing the script as a producer, and has now confirmed he will direct the Sony project as well.

Speaking with MTV's Josh Horowitz at the National Board of Review Awards in New York -- where "Up in the Air," which he produced with his son, Jason, picked up a best film award -- Reitman confirmed he would direct and said, "I hope to start shooting it this next year."
