Guys, it’s time to get excited. If there’s anything better than a Ghostbusters sequel, it’s a brand spankin’ new, all female Ghostbusters with an ALL-FEMALE cast. And this is not just any cast, it’s with some of the funniest ladies in the biz right now.
From The Hollywood Reporter:
Melissa McCarthy, who was already in talks for one of the leads, has signed on for the Paul Feig-directed reboot, and Sony is now negotiating with Kristen Wiig as well as Saturday Night Live players Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Negotiations are ongoing, but the quartet are expected to sign on as the specter-seeking, poltergeist-punishing, phantom-phollowing foursome in the reboot, which is eyeing a summer shoot in New York.
Uh, YES PLEASE. Admittedly, I’m not much of a fan of Leslie Jones – I don’t find her funny in the least from her work on Saturday Night Live – but this seems like it’d be perfect for her. As for the other three, all I have to say is “YESSSSSS!” This seriously needs to happen.
What do you think of the casting and the idea of an all-female Ghostbusters? Would you watch it?
