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!
