This article is a tease! They don't say who they'll cast!
Director Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, The Heat) confirmed on Twitter Wednesday long-swirling rumors of a Ghostbusters reboot, and announced that Katie Dippold (Parks and Recreation, The Heat) is helping write it. “It’s official,” Feig wrote. “I’m making a new Ghostbusters & writing it with[email protected] & yes, it will star hilarious women. That’s who I’m gonna call.”
There should be ample opportunity for the writers of the new movie to riff on the original, which used sex as a metaphor for the ghost apocalypse, with Weaver playing the “gatekeeper”, Moranis playing the “keymaster” and their unearthly offspring embodied by a Serbian supermodel.
