Los Angeles: 'Clash of Clans' director Fletcher Moules has been tapped to sit behind the lens for the upcoming animated version 'Ghostbusters'.

The animated feature is part of Sony's plan to turn the long dormant comedy series into a tent pole franchise, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Sony has been working on to expand the Ghostbusters universe with an all-female team starring Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Kristen Wiig and Leslie Jones.

Directed by Paul Feig, it will release on July 15.

Another potential remake is also in development with Joe and Anthony Russo linked as directors and Channing Tatum as the lead star.

In the meantime, the Russo brothers are still busy with Marvel films.

They will helm 'Avengers: Infinity War Part I' and 'Avengers: Infinity War Part II' after finishing 'Captain America: Civil War'.
