Director Paul Feig is teaming up with Bridesmaids stars Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy once again, this time for his upcoming female-led version of Ghostbusters—and Saturday Night Live stand-outs Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon are joining the party too.
The Hollywood Reporter initially reported the news that the four actresses will be starring in the reboot, and Feig followed up with a wordless tweet featuring a photo of Wiig, McCarthy, Jones, and McKinnon.
“My favorite thing to do is work with funny women,” Feig told EW in October. “I was like, what if it was an all female cast? If they were all women? Suddenly, my mind kind of exploded: that would be really fun.”
Wiig, McCarthy, Jones, and McKinnon’s reps did not immediately to EW’s request for comment. (http://insidemovies.ew.com/2015/01/27/ghostbusters-wiig-mccarthy-jones-mckinnon/)
This is going to be good, no, this is going to be great! This is such a solid cast of hilarious females, I can only imagine how funny it is going to be. I mean Wiig and McCarthy are easily two of the funniest women out there right now. We all know they work well together too after the hilarious movie ‘Bridesmaids’. I can picture some people have and issue with it being an all female cast or whatever, but that is people because have issues with everything!
I am beyond excited that Kate McKinnon is singing on simply because she is currently my favorite female on Saturday Night Live. Then again I haven’t watched in a while, so who knows if she is even still on it!
I really can’t wait for this movie, it is going to be incredible!
