Paul Feig, who created Freaks & Geeks and directed Bridesmaids, announced on Twitter today that he will be creating another Ghostbusters movie, but this time it will feature female leads:
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.— Paul Feig (@paulfeig) October 8, 2014
The rumor of this movie has been circulating since early August. Bill Murray — star of the original Ghostbusters movie — already gave his top picks for an all-female cast: Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Linda Cardellini, and Emma Stone.
With Feig and Katie Dippold — who helped write The Heat — signed on to the movie, we can only assume McCarthy will probably pan out. But what about the other three slots?
We like Stone for one of those spots. For the other two, might we suggest Uzo Aduba and Aubrey Plaza?
