“Bridesmaids” Director to Helm All Female “Ghostbusters” Film

PaulFeig

Well, it looks like a new “Ghostbusters” film is finally happening and it will be under the direction of “Bridesmaids” director Paul Feig.

The movie, which has been confirmed as a reboot and not a sequel, will be directed by Feig with his intentions of making the lead characters all female.

When asked about conceiving a world where the original movies didn’t exist Feig stated:

“Yeah. I love origin stories. That’s my favorite thing. I love the first one so much I don’t want to do anything to ruin the memory of that. So it just felt like, let’s just restart it because then we can have new dynamics. I want the technology to be even cooler. I want it to be really scary, and I want it to happen in our world today that hasn’t gone through it so it’s like, oh my God what’s going on?”

While no casting announcements have been made at this point, many can assume that Melissa McCarthy will most likely be asked to join as she has starred in the past two Feig films and was recently touted by Bill Murray saying “She would make a spectacular Ghostbuster.”

Many fans were hoping for a sequel to “Ghostbusters II”, but due to the untimely passing of Harold Ramis earlier this year it looked like that “Ghostbusters III” was dead in the water.

Are you excited for this announcement or should they just let the beloved franchise go? Let us know in the comments below!

    Why bother remake it? Just let the project end and let’s remake something worthwhile instead such as Thank God It’s Friday or My Stepmother is an Alien. Come on!

    And speaking of female characters? I don’t wanna rant here, but at this point those four guys are some sort of Ghostbusters trademark by now. It’s like Coca-Cola tries to re-branding by releasing New Coke (wait, that happened before and we know how’s it end).

    At least, I hope that the film won’t be about 4 annoying chick catching ghosts with Adam Sandler’s style of comedy, otherwise I have to edit its trailer with Fear’s “The Mouth Don’t Stop (The Trouble With Women Is)”.
