I’m on the fence about constantly rebooting classic movies, but the more I hear about the new Ghostbusters reboot the more excited I get. The latest news from the AV Club is pointing to a dream cast; Kristin Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon!
Kristin Wiig and Melissa McCarthy are both quite well-known these days thanks to “Bridesmaids”, “The Heat”, and approximately 50,000 recurring characters on Saturday Night Live (and if any of Kristin Wiig’s recurring SNL characters show up in Ghostbusters I am retracting all my excitement). But Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon may not yet be household names, so here’s a few samples of what to look forward to with the rebooted Ghostbusters!

Leslie Jones is quite hysterical as well:
It sounds like the movie will be out in Summer 2016, so we have plenty of time to get excited!
