Who you gonna call to see ‘Ghostbusters III?’ Yes, it has been confirmed that a reboot is officially in the works, and it will include ‘hilarious women!’
Although veteran Ghostbuster, Bill Murray, 63, won’t be returning for the reboot, he has given his blessing regarding a remake. Director Paul Fieg confirmed on Twitter on Oct. 9th, that an all female Ghostbusters is going to happen. These ladies will have some big shoes (or rather ghost fighting suits) to fill!
‘Ghostbusters’ Reboot Confirmed

It’s official. I’m making a new a new Ghostbusters & writing it with @katiedippold & yes, it will star hilarious women. That’s who I’m gonna call!

Writer Kati Dippold and Paul Fieg have already proved to be a dynamic duo with the success of The Heat, making us wonder if funny lady, Melissa McCarthy, 44, will star in the female-filled Ghostbusters?
In an interview with The Toronto Star, Bill already gave his St. Vincent co-star, his seal of approval! Although Melissa has not been approached (that we know of), she thinks the idea of making another Ghostbusters is a great idea!
“I think that somebody is really trying to do it, but nobody has talked to me about it,” she revealed to Toronto Star. “Listen, if the people I think are doing it are doing it, I must never question them.”
Bill Murray: Emma Stone, Kristen Wiig & More Would Be Great In ‘Ghostbusters III’
Tina Fey, 44, and Amy Poehler, 43, are also included in the casting rumors for this classic reboot, since they have worked with the director/writer combo before! We are excited to see which leading ladies are granted the opportunity to take down ghost!
Let us know who you think should be in Ghostbusters III!
