After all the talk, this one’s officially in the green: Paul Feig will be tackling that third installment of Ghostbusters and, just as earlier rumors assumed, it will be an all-lady affair. Get ready for the sky to crumble, dudes!
Kidding, obviously. Everything will be fine! More than fine, maybe/even! In fact, with Feig on board and The Heat writer Katie Dippold behind the script, surely there will be some funny to be found — even if the three ghost-hunting leads have vaginas instead of penii (which is totally the plural of penis, right?). It happens from time to time, as predicted in the urban legends surrounding funny females that has been passed down from generation to generation. And what with that recent blood moon we just had, surely that was a sign that the gods have called forth three worthy women who ain’t afraid of no ghosts.
And after years of waiting for Bill Murray to agree to suit up, it’s nice to see something finally come out of the long-gestating project — to say nothing of how a new take (rather than a repeat of what’s already been done twice over, cough) might breathe new life into the franchise and bring a whole new audience (and feel) into the world of stoppin’ ghosts. It’s time, America: isn’t it? Does everything have to really be all that sacred that we can’t have a little fun with it?
What do you think about an all-female Ghostbusters? Leave your nerd rage (and joy) in the comments below.
