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.
Over the weekend it was announced that Paul Feig is in negotiations to direct an all-female version of ‘Ghostbusters 3,’ which is the first bit of news to get us seriously interested since Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s names were briefly attached earlier this year. Feig, who also brought us ‘Bridesmaids’ and ‘The Heat,’ has given us some hilarious and truly great female-driven films. By making the new ‘Ghostbusters’ women, this project has so much more potential because there are so many insanely funny and talented women out there. We couldn’t help but put together a list of who we think should star in an all-female ‘Ghostbusters 3.’
Like some kind of restless spirit, 'Ghostbusters 3' refuses to die. Despite countless massive setbacks that would have completely derailed a film with less name recognition, the film keeps on lumbering forward, surviving countless abandoned screenplays. 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?
When a big-screen, CG-animated 'Peanuts' movie was announced, many people groaned a hearty "good grief!," worried they would ruin the cartoon classic. But, today we get a first look at Charlie Brown and Snoopy in the 'Peanuts' movie and, you know what? It looks very faithful to the classic Charles Schultz design.
Ellen DeGeneres has been dancing through life -- on her talk shows, in her movies, during her stand-up -- so why should the Oscars be any different? The 2014 Oscars trailer has arrived in anticipation of the big night, and host DeGeneres is front and center doing what she does best: dancing!
With a $229 million international box office haul, Paul Feig's modestly budgeted comedy 'The Heat' isn't just one of the biggest hits of 2013, it's the biggest film yet for stars Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy. Unfortunately, Sandra Bullock said 'The Heat 2' isn't going to happen, but we may get something else entirely. Are you ready for a spin-off featuring two of the film's supporting characters?
It's no secret that Warner Bros. has had trouble making a 'Wonder Woman' movie and they'd much very like that to change. To that end, Warner Bros. executives recently met with 'Bridesmaids' and 'The Heat' director Paul Feig, who pitched them a take on 'Wonder Woman' that would've been more in line with the 'Iron Man' movies. So, how did it go?
Melissa McCarthy was fantastic in this summer's female buddy cop comedy 'The Heat,' and it seems that she had as much fun working with director Paul Feig on that movie (and in 'Bridesmaids') as audiences did watching it -- so much fun that she's looking to reunite with Feig for his upcoming spy comedy 'Susan Cooper.'
Just when we thought we couldn't be more excited for 'The Heat,' a new clip pops up online and reminds us that this looks like the comedy to beat this summer. Let's be honest here: how could you not be looking forward to a buddy cop comedy starring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy and directed by Paul Feig? Your answer to that will determine whether or not you like laughing.
