Ghostbusters remake director Paul Feig was recently a guest on AMC’s The Walking Deadafter show, Talking Dead, and while Being asked questions about the recent episode he gave a little hint that the Walking dead is a source of inspiration for his upcoming film.
Speaking on AMC’s Talking Dead, Feig said”
“I will say, I was very inspired by this show. 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.”
Given that the Walking Dead can still give those “oh crap!” Moments, it sounds like Feig wants his version of Ghostbusters to have a somewhat faster pace and intensity then the previous films. This also backs up Paul Feig’s previous comments about wanting the reboot to be scarier.
