Here’s who is officially in talks for the new Ghostbusters, as reported by Variety: Kristen Wiig, pictured above, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones.
Paul Feig is directing with Katie Dippold penning the script.
Several sources say Jones is likely to play a government official similar to the role William Atherton played in the original.
Sounds like this is becoming a “SNL” parody sketch instead of something inspired.
Allegedly, the plan is to land “Game of Thrones” fav Peter Dinklage for the villain role. He would play the ghost of a murderer (sort of like Wes Craven’s Shocker, actually) who resurrects a ghost army based on historical characters.
