Paul Feig making new "Ghostbusters" film starring "hilarious women"

Paul Feig is the man to call about the next "Ghostbusters" movie.

The "Bridesmaids" director confirmed on Twitter that he's making a new "Ghostbusters" film starring "hilarious women," and that he's writing it with his "The Heat" collaborator Kate Dippold.

The Hollywood Reporter said earlier Wednesday that Dippold had been tapped to co-write the script with Feig.

It was first reported back in August that Feig was in talks to helm a third "Ghostbusters" film that would feature comedic actresses in the ghostbusting roles. At the time, Variety noted the project would be a reboot and not a sequel.

Now that it's all official, let the casting speculation begin -- Bill Murray's already weighed in with some suggestions.
