With the hiring of Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) to direct the planned third Ghostbusters film came the idea of making it about a whole new team of Ghostbusters and making them all female. Now they have added Katie Dippold (Parks And Recreation) to co-write the script with Feig. The two worked together before on The Heat.
The new direction and director came about after the passing of Harold Ramis and then Ivan Reitman stepping away from the director's chair in March.
The movie is now being considered a reboot and not connected to the originals.
