When [The Walking Dead](series:201193) ends, there's that sinking feeling that briefly gets alleviated by the post-show conversation on Talking Dead, and I normally watch to make sure I didn't miss anything from the show - and to avoid having nightmares. Also Chris Hardwick often gets a lot of guests on the show which is pretty interesting for the most part.
Recently, he had Paul Feig on the show - of course that's the director and main creative mind behind Bridesmaids and [The Heat](movie:400337). He has always specialized in female led comedies, and if you haven't heard, he'll be directing the all-female [Ghostbusters 3](movie:32733) which promises to be epic.
Talking Dead, I watch normally as a wind-down of sorts to truly calm myself down after a cliffhanger or just a very action-packed episode. I normally need that wind-down badly just so that I can actually get to sleep. Well, what was really cool about this past one is that Mr. Feig had some cool news. Not only is he a big fan of The Walking Dead, but he mentioned the show will influence his Ghosbusters reboot. Check out his quote below:
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.
The Walking Dead is mostly dramatic/thrilling, but it has it's fair share of comedic elements, occasionally. I think Ghostbusters 3 will probably be considerably jokier, but it's cool to see that Feig is interested in making it more intense than many people may have anticipated. I think this reboot could really be good. I mean this cast is hilarious...
Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, Melissa McCarthy, and Kristen Wiig are all capable of being funny as hell, but I think what Feig is saying is that he is going to implement some legitimate suspense - a lot of which is nailed perfectly on The Walking Dead - to the reboot. I think all four actors are up to the task. And while I'm already sure it'll be hilarious, I kinda hope it's a little bit scary... could be interesting and make for a more compelling movie.
Does this make you a little more excited for 'Ghostbusters 3'?
