A couple of weeks ago it was rumoured that Melissa McCarthy was in talks to be one fourth of the long-gestating all-female Ghostbuster crew in Sony’s planned reboot of the 1980s franchise. Now the four women who will be battling the spooks have been announced and it does indeed include McCarthy, alongside Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon.
It appears none of them have signed on the dotted line, but THR suggests it’s just a matter of ironing out the details.
There’s still no news on the exact plot, but the women will certainly be going up against some supernatural foes. Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson are expected to appear, and if they can convince him, there’s still an outside shot Bill Murray will show up too.
Paul Feig will direct with a summer shoot planned.
