Ghostbusters is back … with women in charge
A new Ghostbusters film is on the way, and this time it’s women who they’re gonna call to do most of the busting.
Paul Feig, who directed Bridesmaids and The Heat, confirmed the movie on Twitter, and announced that Katie Dippold (Parks and Recreation, The Heat) is helping write it. “It’s official,” Feig tweeted. “I’m making a new Ghostbusters & writing it with @katiedippold & yes, it will star hilarious women.
