Bridesmaids director Paul Feig has sent out a promise this new year – not to ruin our childhoods.

He is of course talking about his upcoming reboot of ghoul-filled hit Ghostbusters. 

Perhaps he sang a little All 4 One’s I Swear afterwards?

Feig’s message comes as some remain dubious about the return of the film with an all-female lead cast. He has previously responded to this, saying:

“Interesting how making a movie with men in the lead roles is normal but making a movie with women in the lead roles is a “gimmick.” #its2014″. 

Feig is teaming up with writer Katie Dippold, whom he worked with on cop comedy The Heat, starring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy, the latter one of the names former star Bill Murray would like to see on the cast list. 

“Melissa [McCarthy] would be a spectacular Ghostbuster. And Kristen Wiig is so funny – God, she’s funny!” Murray told the Star during the Toronto Film Festival last year. “I like this girl Linda Cardellini [from Mad Men] a lot. And Emma Stone is funny. There are some funny girls out there.”

Who is Feig gonna call? Time will tell.
