The writer-actor, who played specialist Egon Spengler in the first two instalments, said that the new film will not be CGI-driven.
In an interview with Making Of, he said: "We won't be going super high-tech. What made the original Ghostbusters funny was sorta the low-tech aspect of it.
"It's got to be about character, and secondly, the pseudo-science of it - the made-up gadgets and the fake mythology."
The 64-year-old, who co-wrote the original movies with Ghostbusters castmate Dan Aykroyd, recently said that he wanted to avoid the problems associated with last year’s reboot of the Indiana Jones franchise.
