LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – If there is something strange in the neighbourhood, who are you going to call? ‘Hilarious women’, quipped filmmaker Paul Feig.
“Bridesmaids” filmmaker Feig said on Wednesday he is working on a new “Ghostbusters” film for Sony Pictures and co-writing the movie.
“Yes, it will star hilarious women. That’s who I’m gonna call,” he said on Twitter. The studio had no further details on casting or a release date. Supernatural comedy “Ghostbusters”, directed by Ivan Reitman and known for the tagline and theme song “Who you gonna call?”, was first released in 1984 and became a cult movie classic, spawning a 1989 sequel.
The film follows a team of oddball scientists, played by Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis, who invent a device to catch ghosts around New York City. When Manhattan becomes infested with a ghoulish slime, the ghostbusting team are called to save the city from demons.
