As soon as director Paul Feig announced that he was envisioning an all female cast for his reboot of the classic Ivan Reitman movie Ghostbusters, fans speculated about which leading ladies would be donning the ghost-busting uniform. While there have been many rumours and high hopes for a certain few actresses, there’s finally some concrete casting for the film. According to The Hollywood Reporter, talks are still in the very early stages, but should her schedule allow it, Bridesmaids star Melissa McCarthy is very much, up for a part.
THR also mentions actresses like Emma Stone, Jillian Bell and Cecily Strong are all in positions for roles within the movie. Both Strong and Bell have had meetings with Feig as well as the likes of Jennifer Lawrence and Rebel Wilson. All these choices sounds absolutely amazing, with this all female cast shaping up to be a true smorgasbord of female acting talent.
