Director Paul Feig Confirms GHOSTBUSTERS Sequel Starring 'Hilarious Women'!

'Bridesmaid' director Paul Feig turned to Twitter yesterday to confirm the rumors that a new installment of the GHOSTBUSTERS franchise is in the works and will feature "hilarious women."

Tweeted Feig: "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."

While Feig did not reveal who the "hilarious women" in question will be, we're hoping he follows 'Ghostbuster' alum Bill Murray's advice and casts funny ladies Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig, both of whom he worked with on "Bridesmaids." (and we all know how well that one did!)

Feig is currently directing SPY, also lead by HEAT star Melissa McCarthy, which also features Allison Janney,Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale, Curtis '50 Cent' Jackson and Miranda Hart.

The newest incarnation of the film will reportedly center on the newest generation of GHOSTBUSTERS and will feature cameos from the franchise's original stars . The GHOSTBUSTERS film, originally about unemployed parapsychology professors who become a ghost removal agency, has had three different movies and a cartoon series.
