Well, it is official. There will be a new Ghostbusters movie. Paul Fieg , of the Heat and Bridesmaids,will direct. The writer from the Heat will do the script.
This will be an all female team. I am not sure why that is considered a gimmick but it is considered a gimmick. I guess this could work. No casting has been really discussed and no idea on when the movie would start filming.
This will apparently be a total reboot. That might work. The original Ghostbusters are kind of old and even before Harold Ramis’ death, it might have been sad to see the team in action. Maybe a reteaming of the classic cast could have worked fifteen years or maybe twenty years ago.
