“I think Paul [Feig]’s idea of the gender shift was a very smart and fresh way to get everybody to re-look at this in a new way,” he said. Furthermore, he relates Feig to “George Cukor of Hollywood,” who has a great way of directing female casts and understanding their “psyche” and “sensibility.”

Although most of the original casts of “Ghostbusters” have been signed in to play cameos, they would be portraying complete different characters and the reboot would be fairly different from original movies and its sequels.

According to MovieWeb, after the official confirmation of Bill Murray’s appearance in the brand-new reboot, Dan Aykroyd divulged that at the time of handing out facts related to sequel screenplay, he wrote “Hellbent” whilst he never “begrudged” Murray for abandoning the original sequel plans.
