When we first heard that Paul Feig was directing an all-female Ghostbusters reboot, we thought if he just tapped into a few of those actresses who gave us those Bridesmaids quotes, he’d have a potential winner. Guess he thought the same thing as Feig has announced his official cast for an all-new Ghostbusters and there’s a whole lot of SNL represented too.
Kristen Wiig (Bill Murray’s choice!) is joined by Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones (Saturday Night Live) and Kate McKinnon (Saturday Night Live) to make up our fab four that's essentially stepping into those proton packs made famous by Dan Aykroyd, Murray, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson.
Feig has promised a scarier (but still funny, clearly, given that cast) version of the Ghostbusters story that will shoot in New York City this summer.
Stay tuned as more arises from this story and sound off in our comments section below as to what you think of this new crew of Ghostbusters.
Watch Ghostbusters online and see the tall task Feig and company have ahead of them.
