So just to recap, Heather and I casted Ghostbusters 3 way back in August. Lawrence/Stone/Watson/Larson/JGL/Dano/Plaza. Gold.
Heather texted me this link yesterday evening: http://consequenceofsound.net/2015/01/heres-the-cast-of-the-new-all-female-ghostbusters-film. Now it’ll be a straight reboot and here’s what we’ve got (via Rolling Stone):
Just three months after it was announced that Bridesmaid director Paul Feig would reboot the Ghostbusters series with an all-female cast, the four actresses who will don the proton packs have been revealed: Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy and current Saturday Night Live stars Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones. Feig tweeted his Ghostbusters casting news Tuesday night along with the film’s scheduled release date: July 22nd, 2016.
So basically Bridesmaids & Proton Packs. It’ll probably be funny, but it won’t be what it could’ve been.
Good luck with that.
