As you may remember, on August 4, I mentioned there was a rumor that Paul Feig, director of Bridesmaids and The Heat, might reboot Ghostbusters with an all-female cast. And that same day, we all did our fantasy casting for the film.

Well, it is definitely happening, and Feig has hired Katie Dippold, who co-wrote The Heat with him, to co-write with him the all-female Ghostbusters reboot!

This is a dramatic reenactment by Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock of what Jessica Luther and I did as soon as we heard the news:
