  4. Mundane Matt YouTube "Ivan Reitman talks about GHOSTBUSTERS future at #SDCC" 9:15-11:03 7/21/17 Tom Waltz says: "The story is basically there, it's going to follow on 101. They learned some lessons from the prime Ghostbusters, that's what we call them at IDW now because we have so many Ghostbusters, so the prime Ghostbusters have shown them some new ways to use their equipment. If you've been reading 101, Ray kind of scolded Holtzmann on this idea you can't just destroy the ghosts. You have to do something to them. You have to contain them or they're just going to come back and probably come back worse so they're taking those lessons and incorporating them to their world but what they're going to run into is a ghost that feeds on their nightmares and their fears and turns them around back on them. And in some ways that's going to be horrifying and maybe too much for these girls to take on we'll find out, uh Kelly promised me she though thought that she thinks everyone is going to want to see what Kevin's dreams are like. And how those are going to turn out."
