We are so very sorry to share the news that influential filmmaker Ivan Reitman has passed away. While perhaps best known for his work on “Ghostbusters,” Reitman had prolific titles throughout the 80s and 90s.
“Our family is grieving the unexpected loss of a husband, father, and grandfather who taught us to always seek the magic in life,” children Jason Reitman, Catherine Reitman and Caroline Reitman said in a joint statement. “We take comfort that his work as a filmmaker brought laughter and happiness to countless others around the world. While we mourn privately, we hope those who knew him through his films will remember him always.”
Most recently, Ivan worked with his son Jason on “Ghostbusters: Afterlife.“
He was 75.
