Ghostbusters 3 is officially underway as a director has been named as well as hints at the plot.
Paul Feig took to his Twitter account to reveal he will be directing Ghostbusters 3 with the script from Katie Dippold. Feig also included mention that it will star a team of women, which has previously been rumored.
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.— Paul Feig (@paulfeig) October 8, 2014
Feig is known for directed Bridesmaids and The Heat, with Dippold having written The Heat as well as episodes of Mad TV and Parks and Recreation.
Interestingly enough, Bill Murray - who is said to not be returning - mentioned last month that his dream team picks for the cast of Ghostbusters 3 consisted of all women: Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Linda Cardellini and Emma Stone.
