Paul Feig, the director behind Bridesmaids, is currently in talks to helm an all-female reboot of classic comedy feature Ghostbusters.

All-Female 'Ghostbusters' Sequel

Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot won’t be a Ghostbusters 3, nor will it be a remake of the original. Instead, the script will be written from scratch with comedic actresses playing the ghostbusters, reported Variety.

Currently, Feig is in talks with Sony, but the project hasn’t moved forward into formal negotiations.

Feig, who earned raves with female-driven comedies Bridesmaids and The Heat, is teaming up with Melissa McCarthy for a third time in Spy, which is scheduled for release next Memorial Day. Feig is also slated to direct comedy Wish List with Reese Witherspoon in the lead role.

As for the prospect of a Ghostbusters III, no director has stepped up to helm the project since Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II director Ivan Reitman dropped out of the project earlier this year. Multiple screenwriters have also been attached to drafting a script for the installment.
