Dan Aykroyd says that Jason Reitman’s Ghostbusters will not overdo the CGI and will favor practical effects when possible. Aykroyd told 660 News during a new interview that as easy as CGI is, the crew appears to be on board with favoring mechanical and puppet effects when they can do it.

“I’m always urging to use puppets,” Aykroyd said. “I’m always urging to go back to the mechanicals. But CGI is so efficient and easy to use but I think that all of us are on board with the idea of maybe doing mechanicals and puppets where we can.”

The new film is written and directoed by Reitman. It will star Finn Wolfhard, Mckenna Grace, and Carrie Coon as the family at the center of the film and is set for release on July 10th, 2020.
