Paul Feig wants to bring an element from The Walking Dead to Ghostbusters
Paul Feig certainly has an uphill battle when it comes to his upcoming GHOSTBUSTERS flick and I'm not sure if the following news is going to help him any, but here it is anyway. You Walking Dead fans are probably familiar with The Talking Dead, the show taking place immediately after the latest Walking Dead episodes to discuss what has transpired, and Paul Feig was the latest guest. When pressed if there would ever be any zombies featured in his GHOSTBUSTERS flick, he did share some surprising information.
I will say, I was very inspired by this show. 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.
Given that he was on The Talking Dead, Paul Feig may have just been blowing smoke as far as the inspiration is concerned, but you never know. Feig has been adamant that he's going to inject a lot of scary elements into his comedy. One could argue that Ghosbusters fans are scared enough that he's actually directing the thing. He must have known, however, that this would be a hell of a struggle before accepting the gig, so at least the man has balls. Here's hoping those balls can make a good movie.
Paul Feig's GHOSTBUSTERS hits theaters on July 22, 2016.
