Paul Feig Talks Ghostbusters and Other Space on The B-Movies Podcast
He’s directed some of the most popular comedies of the decade, including Bridesmaids and The Heat. He created Freaks and Geeks, for crying out loud. Now, the filmmaker behind the upcoming comedy Spy and the new Ghostbusters reboot has a new TV series called Other Space, and he’s about to take on his most important task of all: guest-starring on CraveOnline’s B-Movies Podcast with William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold!
We sat down with Paul Feig at CraveOnline’s offices in Culver City to learn more about the long-gestating sci-fi comedy Other Space, and how it turned into a reunion for Mystery Science Theater 3000 co-stars Joel Hodgson and Trace Beaulieu. We also learned more about the Silence of the Lambs-themed sequel to The Heat, the unexpected controversies surrounding the all-female cast of Ghostbusters, and Paul Feig’s amazing, trademarked fashion sense.
