It was just a couple of weeks ago that we brought you some fresh GHOSTBUSTERS news from the fallout of the Sony email hack which revealed that many big names are interested in the possible dominant female cast of GHOSTBUSTERS 3, which is to be directed by Paul Feig. To read that coverage CLICK HERE
. Now we have some updated word from the director to be.
Feig Spoke to Empire Magazine about the upcoming GHOSTBUSTERS film. In regards to if the film is a sequel or reboot he said:
"I have too much respect for the original one [to do a sequel]... There's also the feeling that once the world knows ghosts and has seen them busted on such a large scale, they run the risk of becoming pedestrian. There's something fun about introducing our world, which has never seen ghosts to the phenomenon of ghosts. I love origin stories and to introduce new characters."
On his vision of a dominant female cast:
"A lot of people accused it of being a gimmick. I guess I can see the cynics' view of it, but for me I just love working with funny women. People said, 'Why don't you do a mix?' I'm just more interested in the idea of lady Ghostbusters. It's the way my brain works."
This project vs the original film:
"I want ours to be scarier than the original, to be quite honest. Katie Dipold and I are so focused on wanting to do scary comedy. We don't want to hold back."
On the rating of the movie:
"The reason I do a lot of R-Rated comedies is that you want a movie to feel honest. But the Ghostbusters world doesn't need that level of swearing. We'll have to be PG-13 with this one. I would like to make it R-Rated, but I won't. You want the biggest number of people to watch it and not be put off by it."
