When Sony Pictures announced this month plans for another "Ghostbusters" film with male leads, no one was more surprised than Paul Feig, the writer-director of the studio's reboot of the classic comedy franchise with an all-female cast.Feig is about to embark on his re-imagining of the 1984 cult comedy with Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones -- all part of NBC's "Saturday Night Live" family -- due for release in 2016 .The inspiration for "Spy" came from Feig's love of the most prolific spy franchise, Ian Fleming's James Bond, specifically, he said, when he saw actor Daniel Craig's rendition of Bond in 2006's "Casino Royale".But as a comedy director, he said he knew he'd never get a chance to make a spy movie -- unless he spun a twist on the genre.
