For those not in the know, the women pictured are Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones, and they are all in early talks to star in the upcoming ‘Ghostbusters’ remake from Sony. All four women are known to pull no punches when it comes to comedy, and will no doubt easily carry this film, IF things actually materialize. Paul Feig has been tapped to direct and original ‘Ghostbusters’ director Ivan Reitman will serve as a producer. Wiig and McCarthy have worked together previously in the Judd Apatow flick ‘Bridesmaids’ while Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon are current cast members on Saturday Night Live.
I can’t wait to see if this actually comes to fruition, as this is one reboot I’m definitely looking forward to.
