(Broadway World) – ‘Bridesmaids’ director Paul Feig turned to Twitter yesterday to confirm the rumors that a new installment of the GHOSTBUSTERS franchise is in the works and will feature “hilarious women.”

Tweeted Feig: “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.”

While Feig did not reveal who the “hilarious women” in question will be, we’re hoping he follows ‘Ghostbuster’ alum Bill Murray’s advice and casts funny ladies Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig, both of whom he worked with on “Bridesmaids.” (and we all know how well that one did!)

Feig is currently directing SPY, also lead by HEAT star Melissa McCarthy, which also features Allison Janney, Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale, Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson and Miranda Hart.
