Bridesmaids director Paul Feig has revealed that the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot is inspired from The Walking Dead.
Speaking at a post-Walking Dead talk show Talking Dead, the director shared some info about what fans could expect from the untitled Ghostbusters reboot, reported Ace Showbiz. "I will say, I was very inspired by this show," he said, as quoted by ComicBook.com.
"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 upcoming Ghostbusters movie is set for release on July 22, 2016. Feig will serve behind the lens in addition to co-writing the script with Katie Dippold. Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon are set to play the team members.
