Well, this is out of the blue.
According to Variety, Bridesmaids and The Heat director Paul Feig is being approached by Sony Pictures to possibly produce and helm a possible reboot of Ghostbusters, featuring an all women team. The news comes as word that Ivan Reitman, the director of the first two films and slated to direct Ghostbusters 3, has dropped out of the project. I guess Sony seriously wants to get this franchise going again in one form or another.
And before anyone gets upset of yet another remake/reboot/rehash/rerun, take heart--the original film will be back in theaters this Labor Day weekend in honor of the film's 30th anniversary.
What's your take on the news?
