Paul Feig knows you're skeptical about his all-female "Ghostbusters."

Ever the gentleman, Feig told "Empire," "There's a lot of haters and I get it. The problem with the Internet is that if 500 really angry men start bombarding me, I think, 'Oh god, everybody hates this movie,' but then you realize that it's only 500 people. I don't block anyone out or not read that stuff because I want to know what the most hardcore hater fan's problem is." Yikes, he must have some really thick skin. We've seen a comment or two on the Internet on our time, and it can get testy.

Feig added, "The old movie is never going to not exist. It's not my plan to erase every copy! Hopefully they can all live together." Like cats and dogs, maybe? Sheer madness!

The dapper director couldn't confirm anything about Melissa McCarthy's involvement in the movie, or really divulge a ton of other details other than it will definitely take place in New York City. "I just love New York and, selfishly, I just want to shoot in New York," he said. We're into it!

"Spy" opens May 22. In the meantime, we're keeping our ears open for most "Ghosbusters" news!
