    Default Ghostbusters (All Female Re-boot)

    Since the other Ghostbuster threads are a bit choppy and inconsistent... let's start a new one for the reboot and see if it actually happens.

    I'm sure a lot of people will hate the idea, but we should give it a chance. I'm sure the actors can bring it if the writing is exceptional... Hmm?




    New All-Female 'Ghostbusters' Cast Chosen

    1/27/2015

    Melissa McCarthy, who was already in talks for one of the leads, has signed on for the Paul Feig-directed reboot, and Sony is now negotiating with Kristen Wiig as well as Saturday Night Live players Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

    Negotiations are ongoing, but the quartet are expected to sign on as the specter-seeking, poltergeist-punishing, phantom-phollowing foursome in the reboot, which is eyeing a summer shoot in New York.

    McCarthy and Wiig have worked with Feig before, both breaking out in the director’s Bridesmaids.

    Jones, who is currently onscreen in Chris Rock’s Top Five, joined SNL early last year and this fall was promoted to feature player status.

    McKinnon has been on SNL since 2012 and last year was nominated for an Emmy for her work.

    The Ghostbusters reboot has endured a long development process. Original director Ivan Reitman was on board to return, but while original castmembers Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson had agreed to reprise their characters, Bill Murray proved elusive. Reitman then bowed out of the project when Ramis passed away last year. Following Reitman's departure, Feig was approached to direct and reconceived the project as a reboot starring an all-female cast.

    What in the fuck is wrong with film makers these days, can't they think of they're own shit anymore? This is getting ridiculous and sad. Where is the creativity in this "new, free society"?? Losers.

    Drives me NUTS.

    At the end of the day, the film is a COMEDY vehicle - so the comedic skill of the actors is what's paramount. Secondly, it's supposed to be about your average, everyday Joes (or Jolenes, in this case) setting up a ghost-hunting business...So, their being "hot" is not only irrelevant, but wholly unjustified in terms of the film's plot.

    My only issue is with Melissa McCarthy.

    I'm burnt out on seeing her in every female comedy... it seems.

    Who cares? They were guys.

    Women on film have to be hot. You think guys go out of their way to hear women speak?

    If a guy wants to hear a woman being funny then they can ask the nearest one to do some simple math out loud.

    Have you considered having the last two letters of your username surgically removed? Definitely more APT...

    Edit: Actually, make that surgically removed without anaesthetic...

    As the English language - and its spelling - were developed here - in ENGLAND, I think I'll be the one to judge any spelling contests...

    As for MATHS, yes, I'm great.

    And as for the "hot" thing - I spend a lot of money on central heating. Thanks for the interest, though!

    Gotta say dude....Dibs is pretty freakin' hot. Much, much warmer than your average English pint.
    ...and I say that with the utmost of respect Dibblekins.
    But I'm no fan of McCarthy either.

    We're the reason it's still spoken but since you produced some good bands we'll let it slide...

    besides...
