Television Academy And SAG-AFTRA's 4th Annual Dynamic And Diverse Celebration - ArrivalsPaul Feig may be continuing his streak of directing hilarious female-fronted flicks, with a new report suggesting he could be teaming up with Mindy Kaling and Emma Thompson.

According to Variety, Feig is in talks to direct an untitled comedy set in the world of late night talk shows. Kaling wrote the script, and will co-star alongside Oscar winner Thompson.

Feig has been carving out a niche for himself in Hollywood with his focus on helming comedies starring and directed toward women, an underserved audience that has proven quite eager for original content. The "Freaks and Geeks" creator is known for his work on hits including "Bridesmaids," "The Heat," and "Spy," and also directed this summer's all-female take on "Ghostbusters."

While Kaling made her name on television -- writing and starring in "The Office," and creating and starring in her own sitcom, "The Mindy Project" -- she's recently been on a hot streak in film. In addition to the Thompson project, she's also playing one of the titular thieves in the "Ocean's Eleven" spinoff "Ocean's Eight," and just signed on to play a high-profile role in the upcoming adaptation of literary classic "A Wrinkle in Time."

This is a promising partnership between three huge talents, and one we hope pans out. Stay tuned.
