Now that director Paul Feig has officially signed on to direct an all-female version Ghostbusters, the big question remains who the filmmaker will cast in the reboot. While promoting her new novel A Vision of Fire in a Reddit AMA session, The X-Files star Gillian Anderson revealed that she wants to be a part of this highly-anticipated project. Take a look at what she had to say below.
"OH MY GOD, I just looked it up online. Paul Feig, cast me now! Start a Twitter petition! I'm free!!!!! I'm free I'm free and I'm funny, goddamnit!"
There have been a number of supporters and detractors of this all-female approach to Ghostbusters over the past few weeks. Original Ghostbusters star Bill Murray offered a number of suggestions last month, including his St. Vincent co-star Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Linda Cardellini and Emma Stone. However, another original star, Ernie Hudson, spoke out against the female reboot last week, revealing it's a "bad idea," especially since it isn't connected to the first two movies.
It remains to be seen who Paul Feig will eventually cast as the new Ghostbusters, but it may be quite some time before we hear any casting news, since the director is working on a new version of the script with The Heat writer Katie Dippold.
"Uh....uh... uh... Sorta kinda. Keep your ears to the ground."
The last we heard about The X-Files 3 was back in August 2013, when series creator Chris Carter said that he has an idea for the sequel, but it's ultimately up to 20th Century Fox to give the project the green light. That report also revealed that he wants to bring Simon Pegg on board to star as well.
