It’s been far too long since we gave creedence to any rumors regarding Ghostbusters 3: The Sequel No One’s Asking For, so try this on: Paul Feig, the comedic force behind Freak and Geeks, Bridesmaids, and The Heat, is reportedly mulling over directing Ghostbusters 3.
Why? Because, in keeping with Paul Feig’s recent M.O., he would cram the cast full of women and show men a thing or two about comedy!
Or something like that.
This approach might actually be the only viable one, as Bill Murray seems to be steering clear of the entire concept, and Harold Ramis is dead. So unless the world wants to see Ernie Hudson and Dan Aykroyd for 100 minutes (They don’t), then a new cast is probably the move to make.
And this way, he’ll have a viable pretense for casting Melissa McCarthy, which we all know is his real endgame – getting Melissa McCarthy paid work.
