Who Ya Gonna Call: Leslie Jones and the New All-Female ‘Ghostbusters’ Cast


Girl power! The cast for the re-booted Ghostbusters classic 1984 film includes Hollywood favorites Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, Melissa McCarthy, and Kate McKinnon. Three of the four women are either current or former Saturday Night Live comedians, while the fourth, McCarthy, has gracefully hosted SNL three times with three Emmy nominations for it.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, director Paul Feig, who also directed the rib-tickling comedy Bridesmaids, said that the movie is not going to be a sequel or a remake. Because the 1984 Ghostbusters and the 1989 Ghostbusters II is a classic, his movie will have an entirely new plot line.

The film is slated to hit theaters on July 22, 2016.
