Are these your new Ghostbusters?
Lots of interesting casting news and rumors today, huh? The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon are in the final talks to play the leads in Paul Feig's reboot of Ghostbusters. McCarthy and Wiig are both alums of Feig's Bridesmaids, while Jones and McKinnon are current players on SNL, with McKinnon receiving an Emmy nomination for her work on the show. Feig has stated in previous interviews that this is a full reboot of the universe, so don't expect any interactions with the former Ghostbusters cast - which is probably a good thing, all things considered. Better to give these hilarious ladies more time to shine.
