We get an update in the above video from director Paul Feig about the upcoming Ghostbusters female reboot.

Feig says that Melissa McCarthy will be the leader of the team and also offers that the reboot gives them a chance to do things differently and not just follow the originals, especially with the ghosts/monsters and special effects.

Feig also doesn't seem too thrilled about the recently announced Ghostbusters universe with the franchise expanding into merchandise, television and a male-driven Channing Tatum Ghostbusters film.

Feig actually dismisses the wider Ghostbusters Universe and offers it won't affect his film and even states he doesn't know if the Channing Tatum Ghostbusters movie is definitely happening.

He also offers the announcement was a big surprise to him, with apparently Sony not informing him of the new Ghostbusters venture.

Check out more in the video.

The female Ghostbusters reboot has a July 22, 2016 release also starring Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Cecily Strong and Leslie Jones.
