Deadline Hollywood Columnist Whines That “Ghostbusters 3″ Won’t Have Enough Testosterone

  • Some asshole is worried that “Ghostbusters 3” — rumored to be directed by “Bridesmaids“‘s Paul Feig — is going to suck because it’s said to focus on an all-female cast. GROSS, women ghostbusters? Everyone’s childhood memories are RUINED!  “Signing Feig would be great news for Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy, and maybe Maya Rudolph, Rose Byrne, and Rebel Wilson, but what about the rest of us?” writes Mike Fleming, Jr. What about the rest of us indeed? Oh, cry me a river of Slimer tears, dude. [The Hollywood ReporterThe Mary Sue via Deadline Hollywood]
