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. That’s who I’m gonna call.”

The original Ghostbusters movie starring Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Rick Moranis, was a huge worldwide hit in 1984.

The new movie will not be a sequel so much as a “total reboot”, Variety reported. Ivan Reitman, who directed the original movie and Ghostbusters II, dropped out of directing a third movie in the series in March.

Writer sues Disney over Frozen

A Peruvian writer is suing Disney for $250 million, alleging that the studio's worldwide hit film Frozen plagiarised her memoirs.

Isabella Tanikumi's Living My Truth and Yearnings of the Heart tells of

her experiences growing up at the foothills of the Peruvian Andes. The

lawsuit claims that her book and the film are both set at the foot of snow-covered mountains and both focus on the relationship between two sisters, one of whom causes the other to be injured, then hides away. One of them in Tanikumi's book has suitors named Hans and Cristoff. In Frozen, Anna is romantically involved with a prince called Hans and an ice harvester named Kristoff. The lawsuit has been widely ridiculed online.
