CULVER CITY, Calif., Sept. 23 (UPI) -- Sony Pictures says it plans to re-release the classic 1984 comedy film "Ghostbusters" in U.S. theaters for a limited engagement.

The movie, starring Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Sigourney Weaver and Ernie Hudson, will be screened in approximately 500 theaters on Oct. 13, 20 and 27 -- one showtime per day.

"Ghostbusters" will also be shown in select theaters in Canada and in various international markets.

"We're delighted to be bringing 'Ghostbusters' back to the big screen -- this is a special celebration of the movie, giving the fans a chance to see it on the big screen in perfect digital presentation," Rory Bruer, president of Worldwide Distribution for Sony Pictures, said in a statement Friday.

"As we head towards Halloween, we ain't afraid of no ghosts, but just the same we're glad that everyone's favorite paranormal eliminators are on the case."

The iconic movie was followed by a sequel, animated series and video game.
