(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.
