The web was abuzz today when Sony announced the all-female cast for the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot, which is still being finalized at the time of printing. However, as fans expressed their horror over the news (no pun intended), the studio followed it up with an official release date announcement.
July 22, 2016.
The cast announced includes comediennes Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty), Melissa McCarthy (The Heat, Tammy), Leslie Jones (“Saturday Night Live,” Top Five) and Kate McKinnon (“Saturday Night Live,” Life Partners).
We’re not too keen on the casting or reboot idea. What are your thoughts? Are you on board with this franchise update? Even original Ghostbuster Ernie Hudson commented on Facebook after the announcement with just “No comment.” That about says it all.
