Who We’d Cast in the All-Male ‘Ghostbusters’ Remake
The internet was still reeling from news that Bridesmaids director Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters remake would feature four female leads when Sony announced on Monday (March 9) that it would also release a second, all-male Ghostbusters reboot. Talk about franchising!
The new project, directed and produced by brothers Joe and Anthony Russo and slated to hit screens in 2016, will reportedly involve the 1984 comedy classic’s original masterminds Ivan Reitman and Dan Aykroyd. The studio also plans to produce a prequel that will tie together both projects in one universe.
The already announced all-female cast boasts some serious comedic acting chops: Bridesmaids co-stars Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy will strap on the proton packs alongside current Saturday Night Live cast members Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones. So PopCrush decided to jump in on the rampant cast speculation — and to have a bit of fun equaling such a ferocious lineup — for the new dude-centric version. Check out who we’re gonna to call for the all-male Ghostbusters remake in the gallery above!
