If you haven't already been bombarded by this news, where have you been for the past 12 hours!?
Social media has exploded overnight with comments and tweets about Paul Feig's plans for a new female centric Ghostbusters movie, spurred on by announcements made by Sony Pictures' official social media accounts. Entertainment Weekly also has an interview with the would-be Director where he discusses his vision for a new Ghostbusters movie including rebooting the whole franchise in a completely different universe with female actresses taking the lead. The news also includes the hiring of The Heat's writer Katie Dipplod to work on the script.
Fans have been raising their concerns on social media, such as the Ghostbusters Fans Facebook page and Twitter. Before everyone gets up in arms about this movie, everyone needs to remember this important fact. We have been to this point in "Ghostbusters 3" development several times. It was only a few years ago now that Etan Cohen was hired as the writer with Ivan Reitman directing. A few years before that, it was Lee Eisenberg & Gene Stupnitsky. And for a decade before that, Dan Aykroyd was certain he had the best script for a new Ghostbusters movie.
Before jumping to rash decisions and making a bunch of ignorant comments, let's consider for a second that this doesn't actually put us any closer to a new Ghostbusters movie than we have been before. It might be fun to think about the idea, or dismiss it entirely, but whatever does come out of it will be a positive change for the Ghostbusters franchise.

"To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Ghostbusters franchise and the upcoming Halloween holiday, TinyCo, Fox Digital Entertainment and Sony Pictures have announced a Ghostbusters-themed event for the hit mobile game FAMILY GUY: The Quest for Stuff. The integration of Ghostbusters into The Quest for Stuff highlights Fox and TinyCo’s unique strategy of combining globally renowned franchises into Quahog’s mobile universe.
As a part of a themed in-game event set to play out over the next several weeks, Peter accidentally opens a dark portal in the Quahog cemetery and unleashes all manner of ghosts and goblins on the city. With residents spooked and chaos looming, Quahog has no choice but to wonder, “who you gonna call?!”
Players will answer the call, helping FAMILY GUY cast members create their own team of Ghostbusters to defeat the unwanted spirits and restore order.
The event also introduces a new crafting interface to the game. Defeating ghoulish invaders will reward players with ‘soul points’ and crafting materials, which they can combine in a spooky crafting cauldron to create new characters, buildings and decorations. Through a ‘choose your own adventure’ style gameplay experience, players take divergent paths to reach the ultimate goal of saving Quahog from undead lurkers."
