Director of the Ghostbusters reboot Paul Feig has said he has been inspired by The Walking Dead.

Speaking on Walking Dead spin-off Talking Dead, Feig said, "I will say, I was very inspired by [The Walking Dead]. 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."

Ghostbusters, starring Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon is set for release in July 2016.
