Ghostbusters Reboot Was "Very Inspired" by The Walking Dead

Ghostbusters reboot will be "very inspired" by The Walking Dead

Paul Feig was a guest on the Talking Dead last Sunday and the writer behind the upcoming Ghostbusters movie revealed that the Ghostbusters reboot was "very inspired" by The Walking Dead.
“I will say, I was very inspired by this show,” Feig said when asked what connection the Ghostbusters might have to zombies. He specified, adding, “What I love is how they play with the danger, they play with the scariness, but also the idea that it’s always about gauntlet run. And that’s something, an element I want to bring to this Ghostbusters reboot is having to get through these various obstacles that are supernatural and all that. I really feed off of The Walking Dead.” (Via)
It's hard to tell what "very inspired" means and what kind of impact that will have on the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot. But, it would be interesting to see Melissa McCarthy fighting a zombie.
