Paul Feig Says His Ghostbusters Reboot Will Be Influenced By The Walking Dead


Bridesmaids director Paul Feig tonight appeared on AMC's Talking Dead, speaking directly to probably his largest audience since Sony announced that he will helm a new, all-female Ghostbusters reboot.

And what did he say? Well, he gave a little clue as to the tone and philosophy of the film he plans to make...and confirmed that it's a reboot, not a continuation with a new cast.

"I will say, I was very inspired by this show," Feig said after skating past a question about zombies in Ghostbusters. "What I love is how they play with the danger, they play with the scariness, but also the idea that it's always about gauntlet run. And that's something, an element I want to bring to this Ghostbusters reboot is having to get through these various obstacles that are supernatural and all that. I really feed off of The Walking Dead."


Feig's Ghostbusters is due in theaters on July 22, 2016.
