Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids), Melissa McCarthy (The Heat), Kate McKinnon (Saturday Night Live) and Leslie Jones (Top Five/Saturday Night Live) are set to star in the much anticipated Ghostbusters franchise. The film is set to be a remake of the original film but reported to be a scarier take than the original and will not maintain any continuity with the previous franchise. Hopefully they will pay homage to the incredibly successful originals. At least some Ray Parker Jr.
Plans are to begin production this summer in New York and hit theaters July 22, 2016.
In other news, #Ghostbusters will be hitting theaters July 22, 2016. Save the date!
