The original Ghostbusters franchise is getting a new film in 2020

Fire up your proton packs, people, because there's going to be another Ghostbusters movie from Sony Pictures, according to Entertainment Weekly. Jason Reitman (Juno, Thank You For Smoking) will direct the new film, which will be set in the same fictional universe as the 1984 original and its sequel—unlike Paul Feige's 2016 all-female Ghostbusters.

Reitman is a fitting choice, seeing as how he's the son of Ivan Reitman, director of the 1980s films. You may have glimpsed Jason, his mother, and his sister in the original Ghostbusters, as residents fleeing their haunted skyscraper. Jason even had a line in the 1989 sequel: he was the birthday boy who told the 'Busters, "My dad says you guys are full of crap."

Reitman resisted following in his father's footsteps for years, but it seems he's finally succumbing to the call. “I’ve always thought of myself as the first Ghostbusters fan, when I was a 6-year-old visiting the set. I wanted to make a movie for all the other fans,” Reitman told EW. “This is the next chapter in the original franchise. It is not a reboot. What happened in the ‘80s happened in the ‘80s, and this is set in the present day.”

Apple releases official battery cases for iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR

Ars Technica - 11 hours 41 min ago

Today, Apple quietly began taking orders for battery-equipped cases for all three 2018 iPhone models—iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR. The value proposition and designs are essentially the same as with battery cases made by Apple for prior iPhones.

As pictured above, each phone gets a black and a white option. The cases are made of silicone and closely resemble the existing, not-battery-equipped silicone cases that began shipping with the phones first became available late last year, except for the significant bumps on the lower two thirds of the backs of each case. The bump houses the battery, of course. Since the three phones are each different sizes, these cases are not interchangeable between models.

These cases work with Qi wireless chargers, and you can charge both the case and the phone at the same time from said chargers—though it should probably be said that Qi speeds on iPhones are nothing to write home about, and that's a whole lot of lithium-ion battery to fill up. In many cases, you'll be better off going wired, and that's OK, because the cases support fast-charging from USB-PD compatible chargers.

Report: EA’s beleaguered, open-world Star Wars game is no more

Ahead of an official EA announcement, Kotaku has gone forward with major Star Wars gaming news. The most troubled game in the EA and Star Wars deal, which was signed in 2013, has been canceled.

The game in question was once codenamed "Ragtag" while in development with wholly owned EA subsidiary Visceral Games. That changed in late 2017 with a formal announcement of that studio's closure, along with the game's assets and development being primarily handed over to the EA Vancouver studio. This handover was officially described as "a significant change" to the in-development game due to "fundamental shifts in the marketplace."

Kotaku's Tuesday report alleges that the resulting, rebooted Star Wars game, which had been built as an "open-world" adventure, has since been canceled. The report, from Jason Schreier, cites "three sources," but it does not confirm an exact timeline of the cancellation. Schreier says that EA has neither offered its own news post nor responded to Kotaku's questions.
