It’s safe to assume that we’re going to start hearing that just about every talented woman has met or talked with Paul Feig in the coming months, as the director begins casting his all-female ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot. This week, Rebel Wilson said that she met with Feig about a possible role in the film, and now Jennifer Lawrence admits that she also met with Feig recently. As an added bonus, Lawrence had no idea that ‘Ghostbusters 2’ was a real thing.

We’ve gone from actively dreading and turning our nose up at a new ‘Ghostbusters’ movie to rejoicing and high-fiving a million angels now that Paul Feig is at the helm, turning a long-gestating sequel into an all-female reboot for the franchise. Feig is also responsible for introducing us to the charming and hilarious Rebel Wilson, who first entered our pop culture consciousness in Feig’s ‘Bridesmaids.’ Wilson’s name is one that’s been tossed around as an obvious choice for the ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot, so it’s not surprising to learn that the actress has already met with Feig about the possibility.

Original 'Ghostbusters' Star Thinks Female-Led Reboot is a Bad Idea

Most of us have felt that a 'Ghostbusters' sequel/reboot is a bad idea for a long time. In fact, so many people have thought it's a bad idea that Sony Pictures had a hard time finding anyone to even work on it (Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg turned the project down multiple times). But, when it was announced that Paul Feig would be directing a female-led 'Ghostbusters' movie, we had to at least respect that they were trying something different instead of just another tired sequel. Unfortunately not everyone feels that way, including original Ghostbuster Ernie Hudson.

Rejoice! While we've known for a while that 'Bridesmaids' director Paul Feig would be helming the upcoming female-centric 'Ghostbusters' reboot, today we have another development: not only is Feig directing the reboot, which will definitely be a separate entity from the original 'Ghostbusters' films, but the project will re-team him with Katie Dippold, who wrote the screenplay for Feig's buddy cop comedy 'The Heat.' This is pretty much the best news since, well, the news that we're getting an all-female 'Ghostbusters' movie.

Ever since the Marvel Cinematic Universe became a huge success, there were immediate imitators trying to follow that same model. From the 'Justice League' films to 'Amazing Spider-Man' and, heck, even the upcoming 'Star Wars' movies. It all seemed a bit much, to be honest. But, this latest news might take the cake (or donut?) when it comes to biting style. Dan Aykroyd, the only one involved with the original 'Ghostbusters' who seems to want to have anything to do with the new 'Ghostbusters' says he wants to relaunch the franchise following the Marvel "shared universe" strategy.

At this point, any new 'Ghostbusters' movie has been fancasted within an inch of its life. Any actor working today under the age of 40? They've been considered for the 'Ghostbusters' movie. Shoot, there's a chance you were considered to star in the 'Ghostbusters' movie. So, there's no point in going over yet another list of who should star in 'Ghostbusters 3' or whatever it is they're calling it these days. Unless, of course, the person who made that list is Bill Murray. In that case, *in rapt*.

Like some kind of restless spirit, 'Ghostbusters 3' refuses to die.

However, big news has arrived today, as Sony is reportedly eyeing director Paul Feig to take over the project, but will the film end up being a reboot instead of a sequel?
