Paul Feig in talks to direct all-female 'Ghostbusters' rebootAdd to Favorites | Freaks and Geeks
According to Variety, the script will be "written from scratch," and will not be a continuation of the current series in any way (other than the whole ghostbusting thing).
Feig directed two of comedy's biggest recent hits, "Bridesmaids" and "The Heat," both which also featured female leads.
Apparently no formal negotiations have taken place, but Feig has "been in conversation" with Sony to direct, Variety reports.
After original "Ghostbusters" director Ivan Reitman dropped out of "Ghostbusters 3" in March following the death of original star Harold Ramis, the future of the project has been in flux.
