Who ya gonna call, ladies? Ghostbusters reboot is a go

Written by

First Twin Peaks. Now news comes that a new installment in the phantom-fighting horror-comedy series Ghostbusters is officially greenlit. But there's a twist (isn't there always?): According to director-cowriter Paul Feig, it'll be a quartet of gals trying desperately not to cross the streams while bringing down the 21st-century equivalent of Gozer the Gozerian (see image above). Once your disappointment in the potential lack of Bill Murray and company subsides (and who's to say they won't make cameos?), this is a very intriguing development. With so many talented film comediennes out there, the casting possibilities are endless: Melissa McCarthy and Tina Fey? Kristens Wiig and Schaal? Maybe get indie darlings Jenny Slate and Lake Bell to strap on the famed ghostbusting packs. Who would you like to see take on the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man (or Woman)?
