Sony’s banking hard on new Ghostbusters content saving them putting them back in the black. In that vein, they’ve gotten a move on with their long-rumored animated Ghostbusters movie, hiring Fletcher Moules to direct it.

Moules is the animator and director behind those Clash of Clans commercials that you can’t escape no matter how hard you try:

And, although we know the director and that Ivan Reitman will be producing, we don’t know anything else. The big question is, of course, whether the animated movie is going to be about the original Ghostbusters, much like the cartoon The Real Ghostbusters was meant to be. Or if it will be a whole new group of people.

So far, Sony’s got the Paul Feig-directed Ghostbusters, this animated movie, and developing another live-action Ghostbusters with Joe and Anthony Russo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) in charge. They don’t just want this to be a franchise, they want it to be a universe.
