1) Ghostbusters 3 is coming. Who you gonna call? A woman?
Yes indeed as it was confirmed today that “Ghostbusters 3: All about the Money”* will feature women. HOLD ON A GOD DAMN MINUTE my fake grandfather didn’t die face down in a pool of mud in the jungle for a beloved franchise about ghosts and “scientists” who found a way to fight them be turned into some lovey dovey touchy feely chick flick.
Well calm down it was announced that director Paul Feig (air to the Fig Roll fortune) has taken on-board Katie Dippold, the writer behind the funniest film of last year The Heat – she is pictured above. The direction will take a more female orientated story with the director tweeting:
It’s official. I’m making a new Ghostbusters & writing it with @katiedippold & yes, it will star hilarious women. That’s who I’m gonna call.
Feig’s last two films were The Heat and Bridesmaids so we know he can direct smart funny films making GB3 all the more appealing. If you think he looks familiar he also played Mr. Pool, a science teacher in Sabrina the Teenage Witch.
