"Top Five" Premiere - 2014 Toronto International Film Festival

The upcoming reboot of Ghostbusters will have a have a feminine touch to it. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Saturday Night Live’s Leslie Jones will star alongside funnygals Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig and Kate McKinnon. The trade paper is reporting the ladies are still in negotiation for the upcoming remake, which was originally made famous by Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, and Ernie Hudson in 1984. The sci-fi comedy is expected to begin filming this summer in New York. The flick was in development limbo when the original director Ivan Reitman joined the project along with Aykroyd, Ramis and Hudson. Murray’s reluctance to participate caused the flick’s creation to be halted. After Ramis passed away last year, Reitman exited the project.
