Ever since it was confirmed that Paul Feig is directing an all-female Ghostbusters reboot, fans have wondered who will be cast. There have already been several names bandied about, most from original Ghostbusters star Bill Murray, who revealed in September that he would like to see Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Emma Stone and Linda Cardellini in the reboot. While no cast members are officially in place yet, Rebel Wilson, who starred in Paul Feig's Bridesmaids, revealed on the Today show that she has taken a meeting for Ghostbusters.
"I have had a meeting, but who knows. They have to look at the script, when it's finished. I would even do that without the money truck, because I'd do that for free. I probably shouldn't say that live on TV."
Our report from October revealed that Katie Dippold (The Heat) is writing the screenplay, but it isn't clear when casting may begin in earnest. An earlier report from March revealed that Sony wanted to get production started in early 2015, but that was before both Paul Feig and Katie Dippold came on board with this all-female reboot. It isn't clear when Sony plans on releasing this highly-anticipated project yet, but we may find out more once the script is complete.
It's worth noting that, despite turning down the project for years, a report from October hinted that Bill Murray may be interested in returning for a cameo after all. However, another report revealed that this project won't be connected to the original Ghostbusters franchise at all. Do you think Rebel Wilson should be one of the new Ghostbusters. Who else do you think should join her in the all-female cast?
