Official: Melissa MaCarthy is your first new Ghostbuster
The Hollywood Reporter has word that we have the first of our new Ghostbusters, as Melissa McCarthy has signed on for the Paul Feig reboot film, with the other three main cast members close to deals as well.
According to THR, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon are in talks to round out the quartet. From The Hollywood Reporter:
Melissa McCarthy, who was already in talks for one of the leads, has signed on for the Paul Feig-directed reboot, and the studio is now negotiating with Kristen Wiig, as well as Saturday Night Live players Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Negotiations are ongoing but the quartet are expected to sign on as the specter-seeking, poltergeist-punishing and phantom-phollowing foursome in the reboot, which is eyeing a summer shoot in New York.
