Fans of funny women, funny comedy, funny women in comedy, ghosts and slime should rejoice, because that female-centric "Ghostbusters" reboot is officially happening:
In case you were wondering, yes, that Tweet came directly from the account of Paul Feig, who famously directed "Bridesmaides" and "The Heat." He also helped launch Melissa McCarthy into mainstream stardom, and we'd be willing to bet that ridiculously expensive dress Maya Rudolph tried on that McCarthy will be part of this new class of 'Busters. (For the record, Bill Murray has already approved that choice.)
"The Heat" and "Parks and Recreation" writer Katie Dippold will pen the script, adding to our hope that Amy Poehler and/or Sandra Bullock might turn up in this long-awaited project as well.
Now excuse us as we refresh Fandango.com until we can officially see this movie.
