After the troubled production history of Ghostbusters 3, Sony is now considering rebooting the series with an all female line-up.

The Wrap reports that Bridesmaids director Paul Feig is in talks to direct the reboot, with Sony insiders stating that the studio is interested in 'Feig's empowered take and discussing his rewriting the project from scratch'.

The film will be a reboot, and will not have '3' in the title.

The Wrap also states that Dan Aykroyd and Ivan Reitman will likely remain involved as producers, but it's 'unknown whether Aykroyd and fellow ghostbuster Ernie Hudson would appear onscreen'.

If Feig's all female Ghostbusters does become a reality, it seems likely that Melissa McCarthy would appear given her starring roles in the director's Bridesmaids, The Heat and his next film Spy.
