For all those who didn’t know, an expected Ghostbusters reboot has been in the works. And today the cast to the expected prequel of the franchise looks to have been revealed. Reports are confirming that unlike previous Ghostbuster films, the next one will feature an all-female cast in the leads. Leslie Jones (Of Saturday Night Live) has been named as one of the women to star in the upcoming reboot as negations are being finalized.
The all-new, all-female Ghostsbusters are here. Melissa McCarthy, who was already in talks for one of the leads, has signed on for the Paul Feig-directed reboot, and the studio is now negotiating with Kristen Wiig as well as Saturday Night Live players Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Negotiations are ongoing, but the quartet are expected to sign on as the specter-seeking, poltergeist-punishing, phantom-phollowing foursome in the reboot, which is eyeing a summer shoot in New York.
