As I'm sure you've heard by now, Columbia Pictures is rebooting the classic Ghostbusters movie with a female-centric spin, and we couldn’t be more excited! Can you say girl power? The new film will star Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Kristen Wiig, and Leslie Jones as the titular paranormal investigators, as well as Charles Dance,Michael Kenneth Williams, andChris Hemsworth. These four incredibly funny women mixed with the essence of paranormal activity will be a great dynamic.
It has also been rumored that stars from the original, Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, and Sigourney Weaver, will make appearances as well, indicating that this won't be so much of a reboot as a "next-gen" sort of thing (unless Dan, Bill, and Sigourney are not reprising their roles as Ray, Venkman, and Dana, respectively, but are just making random cameos).
The incredible Paul Feig is the director on the film, whose name you'll recognize from such hit comedies (also starring McCarthy) including Bridesmaids, The Heat, and Spy. The plot for the new film still appears to still be a mystery, but as some of the images from the set have surfaced, it appears that the new movie will feel very similiar to the original, especially those outfits. The film may turn out to be a continuation or a completely new storyline.
