Other 1990s Reitman hits include the canine comedy Beethoven, Dave and Space Jam, starring Michael Jordan opposite Bugs Bunny. Additionally, the filmmaker produced the 1997 Howard Stern biopic Private Parts.
In recent years, Reitman seems to have scaled back on the number of directorial projects he takes on. He has only worked on a handful of films since 2001, including My Super Ex-Girlfriend (2006) with Uma Thurman and No Strings Attached (2011) with Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher. More recently, he lent his directing talents to a sports drama entitled Draft Day (2014), which stars Jennifer Garner and Kevin Costner.
As a producer, Reitman worked with his son, Jason, on the critically acclaimed drama Up in the Air (2009). He later worked on the 2012 television biopic Hitchcock, starring Anthony Hopkins. There has also been much talk and speculation about a third installment of the Ghostbusters being in the works.
