Feig

Film Director

Feig is the king of feminist comedies, working as a writer, director and producer on films and TV shows about characters rarely depicted on the big screen — particularly funny women. “Bridesmaids” was his breakout, proving audiences will show up for his brand of distaff comedy, and he followed that up by reteaming with “Bridesmaids” standout Melissa McCarthy in her leading vehicles “The Heat” and “Spy.” His female-led “Ghostbusters” reboot got bogged down by online trolling, but it didn’t slow him down, as he lined up projects including this summer’s Hitchcockian mystery comedy “A Simple Favor,” with Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively, and, upcoming, the holiday romance “Last Christmas” (co-written with Emma Thompson) and children’s fantasy tale “The Sweetest Fig.”
