Sony’s Animated ‘Ghostbusters’ Movie Finds Director

Sony Pictures Animation may have just found the helmer to direct its upcoming animated “Ghostbusters” movie.

Sources tell Variety that Fletcher Moules, the director behind the hugely popular animated “Clash of Clans” commercial spots, has signed on to direct the movie.

Ivan Reitman, co-creator of Ghostbusters and one of the stewards of the franchise, would act as one of the producers.

Sony, a studio with fewer franchises than some of its rivals, is betting big with “Ghostbusters.” Along with the live-action movie, which opens in July, the studio created the Ghost Corps, a collective with Reitman and Dan Aykroyd, to head up the expansion of the franchise and to create a “Ghostbusters” cinematic universe.

After the original “Ghostbusters” movie bowed in 1984, DiC Enterprises produced “The Real Ghostbusters,” an animated series that ran from 1986-91.

Fletchers has worked in commercials and did interstitial work for AMC, but is best known for his spots for the popular online game “Clash of Clans.”One of Moules’ spots, “Ride of the Hog Riders,” has been viewed 89 million times.

He is repped by Verve. The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news.
