(Newser) – The next time the world sees the Ghostbusters, the ghoul-fighting team could be made up of women, Variety reports. The plan for the next Ghostbusters movie has been changing constantly, the Sydney Morning Herald notes; this year saw the death of actor Harold Ramis, after which director Ivan Reitman pulled out of the project. Now, Bridesmaids director Paul Feig is in informal talks to direct a female-driven reboot—a separate project from Ghostbusters III, whose future is uncertain, Variety notes.

Only if they use real funny people and not some wooden actresses who only regurgitates the lines in the wooden script. The real fun of Ghostbusters is unpredictable action and great one-liners.

I don't care if they reboot Ghostbusters or not. But if they do, it certainly doesn't bother me one way or another what gender, races, religion, or sexual orientation the actors are.
