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.

I'm hoping that we can down vote every story about this movie enough so that it won't get made. Someone make a petition about this!

That picture of MM with the zombie is why this will fail.

Everyone is expecting Tammy levels of stupidity and I don't think MM is that popular anymore. Her last two movies sucked, the new one where she is a spy looks terrible and it's all because she uses the same schtick.

The overall cast for this reboot sucks too. They really couldn't find people to do this job so they had to hire people from SNL who aren't even that funny.

Kirsten Wiig is the only one I want to see in this but everyone else will be so bad it will take away from everything.

I'll say one thing for Kevin Feig: he still doesn't annoy me half as much as Bob Orci.

You mean Paul Feig? If this was Kevin Feige, he would actually listen to his fan base (because he has).

Mr. Feig, please kindly shut up. The more you talk, the more you ruin Ghostbusters.

When this comes out

could somebody show a virgin audience both films to see which gets more laughs? I need some impartial data to decide if I'll see this thing.

I watched that episode of the Talking Dead. My hatred for this upcoming movie has been no secret on these bored, and this class A douche confirmed it even further on this show that he has absolutely NO clue what made the Ghostbusters such a special movie.

Well we know from Zombieland which one will get eaten first. So maybe McCarthy won't be in it long and those zombies will eat well.

If that's the case, then I'm rooting for the zombies.

Yah just stop calling this Ghostbusters, and stop even calling it Ghostbuster inspired. It will be a bad zombie, ghost hunters movie, they probably won't even have proton packs or try to catch them, just kill them off or simply run away!
This is going to be such a train wreck.

Pretty sure the original Ghostbusters was supposed to be scary and funny. The ghosts were never exactly goofy. Ultimately it was a hilarious comedy with satirical elements (EVIL EPA!) but the ghosts are still scary/serious enough to me, 30 years later. I think I understand what Feig was getting at, even though he was definitely buttering up the Walking Dead people while on their talk show.

I agree with you. Ghostbusters is both frightening and hilarious. Which is the same aura that The Frighteners (also a great movie) emulated in the 90s.
