Your female “Ghostbusters” have been announced . . . and the choices definitely could have been worse. KRISTEN WIIG and MELISSA MCCARTHY from “Bridesmaids” are headlining the cast. Which isn’t surprising, since “Bridesmaids” director Paul Feig is doing this one. And he Tweeted that it’s coming out June 22nd, 2016.
Kristen and Melissa will be backed up by current “Saturday Night Live” cast members KATE MCKINNON and LESLIE JONES. And yes, Leslie Jones is BLACK.
There’s no word if she’ll be the fourth-most important Ghostbuster, like ERNIE HUDSON was in the original movies.
It’s interesting that BILL MURRAY has always been the stumbling block to getting a third “Ghostbusters” made with the original cast. But when asked who should star in the female version, he mentioned both Kristen and Melissa.
Maybe the casting will convince him to make a cameo?
