All-Female Ghostbusters Cast Has Been Chosen
Who you gonna call? Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, and Saturday Night Live players Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon are all in talks to replace Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Bill Murray, and Ernie Hudson as the beloved Ghostbusters.
Paul Feig teased the cast earlier today on Twitter:
Although negotiations are still ongoing, all four actors are expected to accept their roles. Feig will direct the highly anticipated reboot, reuniting him with Bridesmaids stars Wiig and McCarthy. Jones and McKinnon have both had acclaimed runs on SNL; Jones was promoted to feature player this year and McKinnon was nominated for an Emmy last year.
The Ghostbusters reboot will be shot this summer in New York City.
