Here’s something strange in the neighborhood: Deadline reports that Sony isn’t waiting for Paul Feig’s all-female Ghostbusters reboot (with its cast of comedy all-stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon) to debut before planning additional Ghostbuster sequels or spinoffs. They’re already getting to work on what the trade describes as a “guy-themed” offshoot with an all-male cast.

In addition to the original Ghostbusters films, there’s plenty of movies and TV shows that might serve as inspiration to Paul Feig for his upcoming all-female reboot. He might turn to effective horror comedies, like Peter Jackson’s underrated The Frighteners, or recent New Zealand horror favorite Housebound. Instead, Feig has revealed one of his sources of inspiration for the reboot, and it’s kind of surprising…and maybe also a little disappointing?

So Sony and director Paul Feig have found their new Ghostbusters: Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon. This whole idea of an all-female ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot came together after the passing of original series star and co-writer Harold Ramis, when director Ivan Reitman relinquished the franchise’s director’s chair and everyone involved finally gave up on trying to convince stubborn (and probably very wise) Bill Murray to make a second sequel to the original film.

It’s no secret that we’re officially pumped for Paul Feig’s ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot—especially after that hilariously awesome trailer for his upcoming film ‘Spy,’ which reunites him with Melissa McCarthy. We recently reported that McCarthy is in talks to play one of the leads in ‘Ghostbusters,’ which seemed like a pretty likely scenario as soon as the film was announced.

Dig this, blockheads: The ‘Peanuts’ gang, originally created by cartoonist Charles Schulz, have appeared in so many incarnations in their 65-year history. They’ve been a comic strip, a series of much-beloved television specials, a Broadway musical, greeting card staples, and even the successful pitchmen for life insurance. Now, for the first time, they’re becoming a 3D feature film, with this year’s ‘The Peanuts Movie.’
