Ghostbusters director Paul Feig is in talks to direct Kaling's untitled film, which she will also star in. Feig is probably looking for something smaller after the attention, most of it negative, that his Ghostbusters reboot attracted, and this sounds like the perfect bounce-back vehicle. The film finds Thompson as a veteran late night talk show host who risks her career by hiring by hiring the show's first female writer, played by Kaling.
No word on when filming will begin but it will probably have to wait for Kaling's schedule to clear up. [Variety]
