Ghostbusters returning with a female cast!

Ghostbusters third installment is finally in the works but it is coming back with a twist. Katie Dippold, who wrote Paul Feig’s comedy The Heat, is reteaming with the director for Sony’s new Ghostbusters movie.

It has been an anticipated production for the third installment of the movie, which Dippold is said to co-write with Feig.

After years of development as a sequel with the intent to bring back the original team (Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Harold Ramis), script setbacks eventually led a path to focus on a new generation with younger comic actors.

Feig came on board to take on the project in August after Ramis had died earlier this year and the original director pulled out of the movie. But he came with a new perspective and direction for the movie: the Ghostbusters would now be a female team and it would no longer be connected to the earlier movies but an entirely different series.

Feig is already known for his female comic movies: he directed Bridesmaids (which gave Kristen Wigg and Melissa McCarthy career breakouts), and The Heat, which starred McCarthy and Sandra Bullock.

We can’t wait to see how the new reboot of the movie turns out!

Married with Children Spinoff

 



Married with Children might be coming back to television according to E! in the form of a spinoff. The spinoff is in the works at Sony Pictures Television. The iconic family of four had a reunion earlier this week when Katey Sagal, who played Peggy Bundy, was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of fame.

“We’ve talked about it every year, but then there are so many pieces that have to be in alignment that for some reason it never happens,” she spilled. “But we love each other. Well, we’re all working now, so it’s hard to find the time!”

The spinoff is set to focus on David Faustino’s character, Bud. Katey Sagal, Christina Applegate, and Ed O’Neill do not plan to reprise their roles as they are focused on their other projects going on. It would be interesting to see if they would guest star on the new spin off.

Married … With Children was one of the first original series on Fox. The show ran for 11 seasons from 1987 to 1997 and was created by Michael G. Moye and Ron Leavitt. It was the longest-lasting live-action sitcom to air on Fox.
