They ain’t afraid of no ghost.
Ghostbustersnews.com released a series of new character shots from Paul Feig’s modern Ghostbusters, which display the brand new ghost-busting crew that includes Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones, as well as Chris Hemsworth – thus completely flipping the role reversal from the 1984 original.
“Dead criminals from all eras of New York’s underbelly past have returned to roost among the living,” EW recently stated revealing more of the plot. “Pilgrims, old-timey sailors, Revolutionary War spirits, and even a couple of zoot-suited gangsters are ready to take on four formidable female busters looking to rid the city of its phantasmic filth.”
Feig has filmed cameos (in new roles) for many of the original Ghostbusters cast, including Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Annie Potts, and even Sigourney Weaver.
Andy Garcia, Michael Kenneth Williams, Matt Walsh and Pat Kiernan also star alongside Chris Hemsworth in Ghostbusters blasting into theaters July 15, 2016.
“SNL” vet Neil Casey is the main Ghostbusters villain. He is rumored to play the ghost of a murderer (sort of like Wes Craven’s Shocker, actually) who resurrects a ghost army based on historical characters.
