    Ghostbusters Cast Announced (Kill it with fire)

    What an embarrassment this is going to be.
    This is a massive disservice to the entire franchise.
    Calling Korea, we need this movie stopped.

    Director Paul Feig has announced the cast in early talks for the "Ghostbusters" reboot at Sony Pictures which he's set to direct.

    Feig used Twitter to reveal that "Bridesmaids" co-stars Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy will lead the group which will also include "Saturday Night Live" cast mates Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon.



    It's a complete reboot so the previous characters don't exist in this world, but cameos from actors Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and Sigourney Weaver aren't out of the question. The main male role in the film has yet to be cast.

    Hitfix has character breakdowns for the film with the leads being an academic on the tenure track at Columbia, an author who is more into the "pop parapsychology" of things, said author's ghost hunting partner, and an MTA employee who comes across the main ghost.

    Other characters include a creepy mechanical genius, and a professional debunker of the supernatural - the role that Murray is wanted for. Filming is slated to kick off this summer in New York City.

    I'm not sure why anyone would have a problem with this. I mean, it's clear to me this will bring the age old trade of 'Ghostbusting' into the 21st century and also show us all how women are just as capable as men when it comes to filling the void of desperation the movie industry is feeling over the past few years by producing $#@!e movie after $#@!e movie. I'll be watching it for sure, when i've gone deaf, blind and cannot even go to the toilet without a helping hand. After all, why would you NOT want to see this film?




    Gaming since 1982. Thanks Clive.

    I'm a huge fan of the series (seriously, it's almost disturbing) and I'm willing to remain cautiously optimistic. The only casting that really upsets me is Melissa McCarthy, but that's just personal preference. She seems awfully one-note to me, and it's not a note I care for.

    Leslie Jones and McKinnon are kind of head scratchers. I enjoy them on SNL, but McKinnon's strength is her impressions and wacky characters while Jones seems to know only one way to read her lines- loudly.

    I enjoyed Bridesmaids but abhorred The Heat. Hopefully third time is a charm?
    For I am a sinner in the hands of an angry God. Bloody Mary, full of vodka, blessed are you among cocktails. Pray for me now and at the hour of my death, which I hope is soon. Amen.

    I... I was happy when I read that there was a new Ghostbusters movie incoming but from the moment I saw 'female cast' I felt behh...

    With all do respect to females, if I want to see a new Ghostbusters movie, it'd have to be with the original cast OR at least something SIMILAR, but not randomly like POOF they're women now!
    I'll probably watch it, but I have low expectations...

    anyone know the budget for this film!? ill be assuming near $30m mark an get nowhere near that back, ill be surprised it'll make even half that back or even half at all, in my eyes it'll flop unless this doesn't show up to be as good as it suppose to be an with so many not fans of Melissa that could stop ppl going to see it!

    maybe there will be alot of illegal downloads rather than paying to watch the movie that's how I see it going tbh!

    I think it could easily make that back just because of Kirsten Wig. Her, I like and find funny. That chick from Tammy had her 15 minutes in Bridesmaids, but then her solo movies kept flopping. The name of Ghostbusters alone will get back its budget within the week...but I don't see it being a massive blockbuster success, so just enough to pay back the budget and that's it. Unless it's actually good and surprises everyone. I wanna at least see Bill Murray in this or one of the original cast members. You have to do it justice for the injustice of making it all female.

    I understand that the name of the film will sell but will fans be questioning it when the trailer comes out? because of the cast!! re-boot means same as original or not!? same plot! don't know! a lot of things to think about an the outcome wont be pretty when we get a trailer!!
