The original film and its 1989 sequel were directed by Ivan Reitman, written by Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis, and starred Bill Murray, Aykroyd, and Ramis as the eponymous ghostbusters. A third movie in the original franchise had been in development for years, but after Ramis died earlier this year, Reitman left the project.

Feig signed on to revive the Ghostbusters reboot in August with his own twist: The ghostbusters would be women. A rep for the director told BuzzFeed News there is no further information about the project at this time.

A BuzzFeed News investigation, in partnership with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, based on thousands of documents the government didn't want you to see.
