Reitman, the son of Ghostbusters original director Ivan Reitman, previously explained that he plans to expand on the original plot laid out by his father.
While the news was celebrated by Ghostbusters fans, it seems not everyone is impressed by the announcement, as Leslie Jones - one of the star's of Paul Feig's reboot - has taken to Twitter to blast the project, calling it "insulting" and "such a dick move".
Comedian Leslie Jones played Patty Tolan in Feig's reboot and she has been extremely critical of Reitman's upcoming film. "Like fuck us. We dint count". It's like something Trump would do. (Trump voice)"Gonna redo ghostbusteeeeers, better with men, will be huge".
Leslie starred in the new version with her Saturday Night Live co-star Kate McKinnon and show alumna Kristen Wiig, as well as Bridesmaids sensation Melissa McCarthy.

Instead, X-rays showed a separated AC joint, which Duke hoped wouldn't keep the freshman point guard out for an extended time. Williamson finished with 27 points and nine rebounds as Duke held on for a two-point win without point guard Tre Jones .
Even before Jones' Ghostbusters came out, an army of online trolls mobilized against it, not because of the film's actual content, but simply because they objected to the very idea of women starring in a Ghostbusters movie. "And I don't give f**k I'm saying something!" "I have so much respect for what Paul created with those brilliant actresses, and would love to see more stories from them".
After the female-led version of Ghostbusters was released, Jones was forced to leave Twitter after she received a swathe of disgusting racist abuse.
Dan and Harold also wrote the screenplay of the 1984 and 1989 films, while Jason and Gil Kenan are writing the new one, according to Variety.
