This is just spooky: Ghostbusters 3 will star female comedians, presumably in place of the male "ghostbusters" who appeared in the first two movies, Gawker reports.

Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes! Dogs and cats living together! Mass hysteria!

Bridesmaids director Paul Feig has confirmed via Twitter that he'll direct Ghostbusters 3 with a female cast. "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," Feig tweeted.

Dan Aykroyd and Ivan Reitman are still attached to the project, Gawker says, but will probably just serve as producers.
