It seems like every couple weeks there is a new Ghostbusters 3 rumor that makes it seem like the project is just right around the corner. According to a new report in The Hollywood Reporter, Sony Pictures is targeting Paul Feig to direct Ghostbusters 3.
Feif is the director behind Bridemaids and The Heat, which were two hit comedies starring female leads. That's important information, because of the next piece of info in the report.
According to sources, Ghostbusters 3 will reboot the series to focus on female Ghostbusters. At one time, rumors had suggested Jonah Hill and Emma Stone were in the running forGhostbusters 3, so maybe either things have changed or maybe it's still a mixed sex group of Ghostbusters with the female stars taking prominence.
Even though Feig is labeled the frontrunner, sources also indicate that no formal negotiations have taken place. Ivan Reitman was previously attached to direct but he exited the project earlier this year.
