Ghostbusters Director Paul Feig Lashes Out At The Reboot’s Detractors


Since day one, the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot has been divisive to say the least. The majority of the franchise’s fans were hoping for the long rumoured Ghostbusters III, not a female led reboot from the guy who directed Bridesmaids (a well reviewed and massively successful release). Like it or not though, it’s happening, and one person who has had more than enough of the haters is Paul Feig.

He embarked on something of a Twitter rant this afternoon, lashing out at those who have spent the past few months tearing apart a movie they have yet to see and abusing him for deciding to cast all-female leads in Ghostbusters.

Those Tweets can be seen below, and it’s easy to understand where he’s coming from. With a cast which includes Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and Chris Hemsworth, along with cameos from several original Ghostbusters cast members, there are a lot of reasons to be excited about the reboot despite the negativity surround it right now.

We’ll find out if Feig has got it right or not next July, but for now, be sure to share your thoughts on the Ghostbusters reboot in the comments section below.
