The director of Bridesmaids has confirmed he is making a long-awaited follow-up to the hugely successful Ghostbusters films - reported the SkyNews.
Paul Feig confirmed his involvement on Twitter and revealed he is working with Parks And Recreation writer Katie Dippold on a script.
Feig wrote: "It's official. I'm making a new Ghostbusters & writing it with @katiedippold & yes, it will star hilarious women. That's who I'm gonna call."
The Freaks And Geeks creator had been the front-runner to take the helm since Ivan Reitman - who directed the first two Ghostbusters films - decided in March that he would not be involved.
It is unclear whether stars of the 1984 film - which earned almost $300m (£186m) at the box office - will be involved in the new movie.
Ghostbusters starred Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis as three unemployed parapsychology professors who start a ghost removal service and end up having to save the world from an ancient god.
Murray tipped Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig - who worked with director Feig on Bridesmaids - The Amazing Spider-Man's Emma Stone and Linda Cardellini from Freaks And Geeks as possible stars.
