The company was formed in March 2015 by Sony Pictures Entertainment in order to create a Ghostbusters cinematic universe and expand the Ghostbusters brand into films, television series, and merchandise. The company is currently headed by Jason Reitman and Dan Aykroyd, along with Montecito Picture Company partners Tom Pollock and Joe Medjuck.[3][4]
