According to The Hollywood Reporter, director Paul Feig is in the final leg on his quest to find the new Ghostbusters for the Ghostbusters reboot film.
At the moment though, it’s really just McCarthy that’s just confirmed for an unspecified role in the new movie.
Interestingly enough McKinnon and Jones are currently working on Saturday Night Live while Wiig was a former member. Even more important is the fact that both Dan Akroyd and Bill Murray were also part of the SNL cast decades ago.
Its really the next best thing for the franchise considering Harry Ramis (Egon) passed away last year while original director Ivan Reitman has bowed out of the project. Bill Murray doesn’t want to have anything to do with the new project but Ernie Hudson (Winston) and Akroyd (Ray), last we checked, were OK with doing the project.
