Fans can also look forward to a new Ghostbusters, coming from Jason Reitman – son of original director Ivan Reitman. Reitman had helped dig up some of this unseen footage while working on the upcoming sequel. He explained during a panel this weekend:

“In making this movie, we found something kind of extraordinary. We went to Sony, and we said, ‘We’d really love to get back into the original dailies from 1984. Do you still have them?’ And we found them. They were in a mine in Kansas, and we shipped the boxes to Burbank. We’ve been going through the footage for reasons I cannot tell you, but along the way we found some really cool stuff.”

Let us know what you think of the deleted scene.
