Who You Gonna Call? The Ghostbusters Reboot Has Been Cast!

By: Adam Basciano


We know which four actresses will be battling the paranormal in New York City in the rebooted Ghostbusters film. ” 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.” All these four actress are very good at doing comedy, but a look at their resumes and that is pretty much all you see. Melissa McCarthy may be one funny lady, but her performances are pretty much all the same.  Then there’s the fact that two of the four cast members are being reunited from the film “Bridesmaids.” Is director Paul Feig even trying to make a Ghostbusters film, or is he trying to make a Bridesmaids sequel that parodies the Ghostbusters?  I’m all for an all female led Ghostbusters reboot, but this cast leaves me uninspired.  Seems like Paul Feig got lazy, and just decided to cast people he’s worked with before because he knew they would do it.  The reason why the original Ghostbusters films worked is because the cast was able to balance comedy, scariness, and seriousness all into one film. Can these four do the same? Anything’s possible, but personally, I doubt it.  Hopefully I’ll be proven wrong on July 22 2016. (Source: The Hollywood Reporter)
