There’s one upcoming release this year that comedy buffs have been drooling over. An all-female cast, composed of SNL veterans such as Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon avec Golden Globe nominee Melissa McCarthy, is dropping in July. The “Ghostbusters” reboot has been a long-awaited pick up on the legendary franchise.
Columbia Pictures, the production’s distributor, has slipped an official cast promo today. Bare in mind, director Paul Feig didn’t leave much for the imagination in the first place by posting news and photos all over social media throughout last summer. However, catching a still from the finished product is more than exciting. A simple reminder we’re a few months away from one of 2016’s most anticipated comedies is always welcome right in the midst of a jolly, holiday season.
Bill Murray, Dan Ackroyd and Sigourney Weaver are also in the pool of talented cast. It’s nice to see them hand over the ghostbusting torch to a new selection of next generation fighters. The cherry topper is that we also have Chris Hemsworth, who seems to be in pretty much every second blockbuster audiences see these days. It’s been a big year for the Australian A-lister, who broke through the icy stardom barrier with his role of Nordic god Thor back in 2011.
Safe to say I can’t wait for this to hit the big screen.
