She Ain’t Scared Of No Ghost: All Female “Ghostbusters” Film Is In The Works
Honestly, when I think of Ghostbusters, I think of Dan Aykroyd, green gunk and that bomb soundtrack. I don’t remember the movie as well as I thought I did. Still, that doesn’t stop me from being unexpectedly excited about the new, all-female remake of what I believe to be a classic.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, actresses Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and our girl Leslie Jones, are in the midst of negotiations for the roles in the new Paul Feig-directed film. Feig is the genius behind films like Bridesmaids and The Heat.
Again, negotiations are still in progress but based on Feig’s own Twitter page, featuring this picture…
…it seems like it’s pretty much a go. A Ghostbusters reboot has been in the works for some time now. The original direct Ivan Reitman was supposed return with original cast members Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Bill Murray and Ernie Hudson. But Murray wasn’t about it. And after Ramis passed away, Reitman was out. Once Reitman was officially off of the project, Feig got a hold of the idea and reconceptualized it to feature an all-female cast. Can we also talk about Leslie Jones’ come up? I remember seeing and loving her on “Comic View” and then wondering where she went once the show went off the air. Now, she’s in Chris Rock films, a regular on “SNL” and is about to get this lead in a blockbuster film money. Go ‘head girl!
Like I said, Feig seems to be very confident that this is really happening. So confident, in fact, that he tweeted a projected date for the film to be in theaters.
Are you here for this remake?
