Well, we expected the Paul Feig-directed, female-fronted Ghostbusters reboot to eventually cast a quartet of funny women, and low and behold, that’s precisely what they just did. Donning those iconic beige jumpsuits are Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon. We’ve also got some descriptions of the characters, and the possibility of one of the old guard making an appearance.
The Bridesmaids and The Heat director took to Twitter earlier to day to reveal his four choices, and though at this stage they’re still in negotiations to join the party, it sounds like a deal is pretty close. And if it is moving along at this clip, a spring shoot is not out of the question, which was a possible point of contention, as McCarthy has an increasingly busy schedule in recent days.
