This is what the film industry needs: Paul Feig (director of “Bridesmaids”) is going to be teaming up with “Parks and Recreation” writer Katie Dippold, with whom he also worked on “The Heat,” to make an all-female revamp of “Ghostbusters.” Dippold has a long career in comedy: In addition to her work on “Parks and Rec,” she was in the Upright Citizens Brigade, she’s written for “MADtv,” and she’s a sketch regular on “Conan.”
So, a female-written, classic comedy remake starring women, directed by someone who has a track record of creating hilarious female buddy movies. HELL YES. And it’s “Ghostbusters,” specifically. Question: What female comedians are up to the task of out-comedying Bill Murray? I can think of a few who might…

Dear Huang Jianjun,
I know you take your ghostbusting extremely seriously. Killing ghosts has been your passion since you saw “Ghostbusters” in the ’80s. I’ve always wanted to be supportive of you and your dreams, so I refrained from telling you that I thought your idea to start a ghostbusting business was absurd. What can I say? I was tired of you sitting around all day watching watching succubus porn and drinking Mountain Dew, so I lied and told you to start your business. I wanted that imprint of your ass off my couch. I realize now that was a mistake. You used your business as an excuse to have sex with an unsuspecting woman.

I suppose you were lying about not being able to get it up because of your diabetes too. Keep reading »
Babies, man. They’re real terrors. Just check out Dan Milano’s infant daughter, dressed as a terrifying baby Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man, wreaking havoc on the plastic people of her small hamlet. Where are the baby Ghostbusters when you need them? [Twitter]
This 4-year-old girl has one of the best Ghostbusters costumes we’ve ever seen (including a handmade proton pack), but it’s her fierce expression and confident stance that really makes it work. Watch out, evil spirits and sentient marshmallow men! [Imgur]
Dear Guy Who Built An Exact Replica Of The Car From “Ghostbusters,”
If I were to make a list of traits I find irresistible in a man, it would go something like this: “dark hair, green eyes, great sense of humor, intelligence, kindness, and most importantly, willingness to spend almost $80,000 to turn a 1959 Cadillac Hearse into a working replica of the car from ‘Ghostbusters.’” My current boyfriend fits most of these criteria, but as far as I know, you’re the only man in the world who has ever accomplished that last one. It took years of work, 158 miles of wire, four lightbars, and rotating beacons, but you did it. Now, who you gonna call? Hopefully me.
