Director Paul Feig proclaimed last October that he is in fact directing the latest installment in the Ghostbuster franchise. The Heat writer Katie Dippold will pen the script. Look for a younger and “hipper” all-female cast. Shooting will be in New York City. Feig assures fans that he is not creating a parody of the original but plans to update the immensely popular franchise.

Speculation has started on who these hilarious women will be. Recent reports, via leaked emails, have Melissa McCarthy and Gillian Anderson as the front-runners. Australian actress Rebel Wilson has already spoken with Feig. All we know is that it will be an all-female busting team. Ahh, a breath of fresh air!
