Bridesmaids, The Heat, and Spy director Paul Feig is currently shooting his all-female Ghostbusters reboot, and thanks to People, PopSugar, Just Jared and Entertainment Tonight, we have our first look at Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Melissa McCarthy as the new Ghostbusters characters. Leslie Jones is the fourth actress that makes up the new team, but she’s not present in these pics.
In an interview with ComingSoon.net, Feig had this to say about the new project:
"I’m having a lot of fun playing with genres. I love the original film, but I also just love the idea of busting ghosts and kind of paranormal warriors. I thought, ‘You know, if I could do this with the funny women I know and kind of just do a new origin story…’ I’m more interested in what would happen today. You know, you see things on TV about ghosts, but none of it’s real. What if, suddenly, something started happening? What happens when that just begins to happen to people? Also, how do they develop their technology? It’s not as fun if they’re just handed their proton packs. It’s why it’s not as fun to do a sequel. The fun is getting there.”
Ghostbusters will be shooting in Boston and New York and is scheduled to be released on July 22nd, 2016. You can read some spoiler filled plot details about the movie here if you want. What do you think of the looks these actresses are sporting in the film?
