Ellen DeGeneres and Lena Dunham Want to Be ‘Ghostbusters’

Ellen DeGeneres and Lena Dunham Want to Be ‘Ghostbusters’

After rumors of an all-female Ghostbusters started popping up last month, original Ghostbusters star Bill Murray suggested that his St. Vincent co-star Melissa McCarthy be cast, along with Kristen Wiig, Linda Cardellini and Emma Stone. It was announced earlier this month that Paul Feig is officially directing an all-female version of Ghostbusters, which lead to The X-Files star Gillian Anderson expressing her interest in the project last week.

Of course, no one has been officially cast yet, but when Ellen DeGeneres erroneously suggested that Melissa McCarthy is "in," the actress revealed she has not been cast yet. However, she has starred in director Paul Feig's last three movies, Bridesmaids, The Heat and the upcoming Spy, which hits theaters next May. While we'll have to wait and see who officially gets cast, it wouldn't be surprising if Melissa McCarthy joins the main lineup at some point. We can expect casting to really heat up after Paul Feig and writer Katie Dippold finish the script.
