An All-Female 'Ghostbusters' Movie is Happening - Get the Details!

We’ve been hearing about an all-female Ghostbusters reboot for months and the film has finally been given the go ahead!

“It’s official. I’m making a new Ghostbusters & writing it with @katiedippold & yes, it will star hilarious women. That’s who I’m gonna call.” Paul Feig, director of Bridesmaids, tweeted just a few minutes ago!

Katie Dippold is famous for writing the Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy comedy The Heat.

The original Ghostbusters included parapsychologists Dr. Peter Venkman (Bill Murray), Dr. Raymond Stanz (Dan Aykroyd), and Dr. Egon Spengler (Harold Ramis).

An all female Ghostbusters gives us so much amazing lady-casting to look forward to in the future!

WHO WOULD YOU LIKE to see in the female Ghostbusters??

    This could be really awesome if they pull it off well and have a talented and diverse cast.

    Awesome! hopefully they aren’t all white women. No racist, just want some diversity.

    @noracist: i agree, better be good with diverse comedic talents, an all white cast wouldn’t go well at all these days especially since ghostbusters itself wasn’t all white either. but hold up, is this the actual ghostbusters sequel that everyone was talking about that bill murray didn’t want to be a part of or is this a completely new project? cause im pretty sure dan akroyd and ernie hudson said they’d love to be a part of the new movie so im not sure if this is the official sequel.

    No thanks. Won’t be the same especially if they have Wiig in it. Can’t stand her at all.

    The Guys really complimented each other so well and worked well. You can’t recreate that “magic”.

    I mean who are they going to get? Melissa, Wiig, and so on? Yeah let’s just call it Bridesmaids – Go Ghost Hunting.

    I’m still hoping that they make a diverse remake of Roots.

    With Brad Pitt as Kunta Kinte.

    Let me guess, she’s going to cast Melissa McCartney and Kristen Wig? They are the only really funny women in Hollywood, along with Amy Polher.

  • cameron

    There’s some classy women with talents like Charlize Theron, Sarah Silverman, Megan Fox, Kirsten Dunst – rollcall !
