Sony considering an all-female ‘Ghostbusters 3’ directed by Paul Feig

Paul Feig

Sony – and especially Dan Aykroyd – really want to make a third Ghostbusters movie, and after years of false starts and rewrites and failed attempts to woo Bill Murray, the studio might be close with an all-female reboot.

According to Variety, Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, The Heat) is being courted to direct the flick, which would instead have four comedic actresses playing the ghostbusters.

No formal negotiations have taken place, Variety cautions, but this is closer than Sony’s seemingly been before.

The original script penned by Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky will be thrown out, and a new one written from scratch.

You can assume that if Feig gets involved, he’ll bring alone his muse Melissa McCarthy too. That is not a bad thing.
