Paul Feig May Direct A Female-Focused Reboot Of 'Ghostbusters'


We couldn't dream up a better scenario for the perpetually in-development "Ghostbusters" continuation: "Bridesmaids" and "The Heat" director Paul Feig is being eyed to helm a reboot of the film featuring an all-female cast.

The Hollywood Reporter disclosed that Sony is taking a new direction, shifting focus from "Ghostbusters 3" to a totally fresh start, and Feig's rep confirmed to MTV News that the studio is planning a reboot.

Though formal negotiations haven't begun, Feig is apparently Sony's first choice to direct. We're just gonna go ahead and let Feig muse Melissa McCarthy telegraph our thoughts on the matter.

Guess it's time for us to brush up our fantasy casting (though you can stay, Aubrey Plaza!)
