The official all female cast for the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot project has been announced and it is literally the best thing ever. Paul Feig, the director of the upcoming reboot, announced the cast and release date for the film on Twitter earlier today. Ghostbusters will star Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon.
The film is a remake of the 1984 iconic comedy from Ivan Reitman. Feig’s remake has been described has going to be “scarier” than the original while not maintaining any continuity with the original film or its 1989 sequel (or the animated series “The Real Ghostbusters,” for that matter). The actual plot of his film has not been revealed.
Ghostbusters is scheduled to shoot this summer in New York. The film will hit theaters on July 22, 2016.
