Kristen Wiig to star in ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot

Posted on January 28, 2015 and filed under Ghostbusters, Rumored Projects

Here’s a fantastic piece of news! According to The Wrap (and pretty much all the news-sites on the Internet) Kristen Wiig will star in Sony Pictures’ all-female reboot of the iconic Ghostbusters!! She’ll play one of the four leads along with Melissa McCarthy and Saturday Night Live cast members Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones. Paul Feig is attached to direct, which would mark a Bridesmaids reunion for him, Wiig and McCarthy. Feig himself tipped off social media to the potential stars by tweeting a photo of all four ladies.

Plans for the franchise first surfaced in October, when Feig said he wanted to stay faithful to the beloved original movies starring Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and the late Harold Ramis. Kate Dippold wrote the screenplay for the reboot of the iconic comedy, and filming is expected to begin this Spring. The new Ghostbusters will be released on July 22, 2016, Feig tweeted.
