Yesterday came the major news that Paul Feig was officially directing Ghostbusters 3 (which we’ll now just be referring to as the Ghostbusters reboot since that’s what it really is). Katie Dippold has been hired to co-write the script with Feig and it will center around a cast of “hilarious women.” All of this sounds really good to me, as it won’t have anything to do with the tired “handing over of the torch” concept we’d been hearing about for years.
And now it’s also confirmed that this will not be a sequel of any kind, but rather a hard reboot. It won’t follow the events of the first two films, which I think is a wise choice. Paul Feig recently opened up about the film and the logic behind the choices he’s making. Hit the jump for more on the Ghostbusters reboot.
