Paul Feig took to Twitter and revealed his new cast for the female lead reboot that will, according to rumors, hold no continuity whatsoever with the original flicks. This is a remake of Ghostbusters, with a much scarier tone.
Kristen Wiig (best known for Bridesmaids), the always awesome Melissa McCarthy (Tammy) and two women from Saturday Nigh Live, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon round out the crew. Now I know all these actresses are funny and they’re ready to “bust some heads, in a spiritual sense of course” but the 1984 film is a classic! Even by today’s standards it’s regarded as a comedy staple and one of a handful of movies that countless fanboys and fangirls will no doubt force on their children and their children’s children.
This could have been a pseudo sequel where the first team is gone, more then likely missing or dead because they tangled with the wrong entity, and these four women fall into a series of events where they find the proton packs and decide to go into business for themselves.
But what do you think? Is this a good idea? Or bad idea?
