Though all the chatter lately has been about the status of Ghostbusters 3, Variety is reporting that Paul Feig, who helmed lady-led comedies The Heat and Bridesmaids, is being courted by Sony to produce a Ghostbusters reboot with female leads.
Variety says there has been "conversation" but not negotiations, per se. The trade also says the script would be "written from scratch", which means the lady Ghostbusters would probably not just be genderbent versions of the old ghostbusting team.
No word on whether this reboot would be produced instead of Ghostbusters 3, but I would assume we all hope that's what would happen. Either way, this sounds pretty promising to me, though still fragile right now.
But let's go ahead and roll with this and start fan-casting, keeping in mind it probably won't just be the old team as women. Give us your picks.
