We’ve been hearing a lot of rumors about the future of the Ghostbusters franchise for a long time. The latest one is that Paul Feig is “being courted” to direct and produce a reboot with “comedic actresses” as the titular Ghostbusters.
The movie is a total reboot most likely with female characters played by comedic actresses in the ghostbusting roles, according to sources. The script will be written from scratch.
Feig, who is best known for helming the comedy hits “Bridesmaids” and “The Heat,” has been in conversation with Sony to direct the project. However, no formal negotiations have taken place yet. Sony declined to comment.
At this point, it’s hard to know what to really believe or expect from Ghostbusters. We’ll see what happens.
