Katie Dippold Is Writing the ‘Ghostbusters’ Reboot for Paul Feig

feig dippoldIt looks like the all-lady Ghostbusters reboot is moving forward. Following August’s report that Bridesmaids and The Heat director Paul Feig was in talks with Sony to direct the long in-the-works sequel-turned-reboot, THR reports today that Feig’s collaborator Katie Dippold — who penned the script for The Heat and has also written for MADtv and Parks and Recreation — has officially signed on to co-write the reboot with Feig. Dippold also recently finished writing the script for The Heat 2. No cast has been announced yet for the film, but hopefully someone involved considers some of Bill Murray’s suggestions. Feig also gave an update on Twitter today: “It’s official. I’m making a new Ghostbusters & writing it with @katiedippold & yes, it will star hilarious women. That’s who I’m gonna call.”
