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. Feig has taken a forthcoming approach to talking about the reboot, and in his latest interview, he has even more reassuring information for fans of the franchise.

After months of rumors and speculation, it looks like director Paul Feig is finally starting to assemble his cast for his ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot. The name at the top of his list should surprise no one: Melissa McCarthy, who he previously directed to an Oscar nomination and huge box office success in ‘Bridesmaids’ and ‘The Heat,' and who is in early talks to star in the film.

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.’

Only one thing has been able to get us interested in a new ‘Ghostbusters’ movie, and that’s Paul Feig’s decision to make an all-female reboot with the property, which will surely feature a cast of incredibly funny women. But some people have criticized Sony and Feig’s decision to go with a female cast, casually (and disrespectfully) dismissing it as little more than a “gimmick.” Feig opened up in a recent interview about why he chose to make an all-female reboot, how his film will be much scarier than the original, and aiming for a PG-13 rating.

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.

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.

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.
