Paul Feig Reveals Cast of GHOSTBUSTERS Reboot
A new Ghostbusters movie has been in the works for so long that I honestly never thought we'd see it. But it's looking more and more likely, and today the film took another giant step forward. Writer/director Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, The Heat) tweeted photos of his leading ladies for the film, and they include the previously-rumored Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, and Saturday Night Live stars Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones.
McCarthy and Wiig were sort of expected additions, but it's especially nice to see the SNL ladies earn the potential for breakout stardom here. McKinnon has been my favorite part of the long-running sketch show for the past couple of years, and it's cool to see Jones start to be seen by a wider audience (she also just appeared in Chris Rock's Top Five). Deadline says these deals are still being negotiated, but if Feig is sure enough to publish this photo, then I think it's as close to a done deal as it gets. Looking forward to seeing these ladies lead a new team of Ghostbusters?
