When it was announced that the "Ghostbusters" would be all-female. I was all for it. I didn't mind it at all, not just because I was a livid fan of the movies. I always liked the idea of expanding the universe, and if that meant a team of all-women, then it could work. It seems Paul Fiege is off to a great start casting-wise. Sure, for an all-female "Ghostbusters" reboot, people like Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig are givens. I don't want that to sound like they won't be great, because I think they will be. I honestly don't know much about Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones, but I am as curious as always. Honestly, who won't buy a ticket to see Chris Hemsworth of all people doing comedic stuff?
If you are not at least pondering a new "Ghostbusters" movie, perhaps the addition of these three will trip your trigger.
Even if you think that an All Female "Ghostbusters" is just a reaction to a very PC age, you have to be at least a little excited now. This cast is sizing up to be something exciting, and if the writing and execution is all there, this will be a good reboot.
Here's to hoping that happens.
