Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, and Saturday Night Live stars Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon are all expected to sign on for the new Ghostbusters flick which will be quite different (and refreshing) from the all-male ghost-trapping squad we've come to know.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Melissa has already committed to the Paul Feig-directed project and Sony is negotiating with Kristen, Leslie and Kate. Melissa and Kristen worked with Paul before on their hit comedy Bridesmaids.
Previously, the original director of the Ghostbuster films, Ivan Reitman, had agreed to return to the Ghostbusters franchise, as did original cast members Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson. But, things changed, when Bill Murray didn't commit to making another Ghostbusters film and Ivan stepped away when Harold passed away last year.
After all of that happened, Paul was approached to not only direct the project, but revamp it with an all-female cast.
In addition to announcing the film's leading ladies, Paul also tweeted that the film is set to be released July 22, 2016. Are you excited to see the new all-female cast in action? Tell us in the comments!
