'Ghostbusters' Director Paul Feig Strikes Back at Haters

The release of the "Ghostbusters" reboot may be over half a year away, but the film has already been subject to incredibly harsh criticism, despite the support of former stars like Bill Murray and Ernie Hudson. Now, director Paul Feig has struck back on Twitter, telling haters to "embrace a new generation getting their own version" of the Ghostbusters and "just let this movie happen."

Then you should embrace a new generation getting their own version. GB is a positive force. Your negativity isn't. https://t.co/MOKZpLLIBo

The film centers at first on Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig’s characters, authors of a book claiming ghosts are in fact real that find themselves laughing stocks in the academic community. They eventually meet up with Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones’ characters and set out to prove the existence of ghosts — presumably by ‘busting them.

Opening July 22, 2016, “Ghostbusters” also stars Neil Casey as a villain named Rowan, Chris Hemsworth as receptionist Kevin, Andy Garcia as the Mayor of New York, Michael K. Williams as Hawkins and Matt Walsh as Rourke, with original cast members Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray and Ernie Hudson appearing in unspecified roles.
