The Bridesmaids moviemaker and the all-female Ghostbusters played by Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones, have been receiving backlash ever since the reboot of the 1984 original was announced in 2014.

Paul wishes the public would hold fire from criticism until they have seen the finished product. The director is annoyed people are forming an opinion based on the fact it is a reboot and it features an all-female team, rather than the original all-male line-up.

"The problem with the Internet is people pre-judge things," he told Britain's The Independent newspaper. "There are waves of comments that are pure misogyny, but there's also a whole other group of people who have problem that it's a reboot. I get that, but the film hasn't even come out yet. Give it a chance."
