Previously there had been rumors that Paul Feig, director of Bridemaids and The Heat, had been in line to direct the new sequel and that he would want a all-female ghostbusting team and yesterday he confirmed it.

Katie Dippold has such writing credits under her belt as The Heat, which has a cast lead by Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy, and award-winning comedy TV show Parks and Recreation. Her resume shows a lot of promise for strong female characters and plenty of laugh out loud comedy.


The Hollywood Reporter has revealed other rumors about the new Ghostbusters movie for example “the project would launch a new series instead of being connected to the earlier movies.” So there might not be a continuation storyline, however perhaps there will be cameos from the likes of Bill Murray or Sigourney Weaver. Here’s hoping.
