Ghostbusters: Sigourney Weaver Has Joined the Reboot
The all-female Ghostbusters reboot cast its funny foursome a few months ago, and now some new cast members have joined the comedy. The movie, directed by Bridesmaids' Paul Feig, has added original cast members Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and more. Male cast members like Michael K. Williams will spar with the movie's four leads, anchored by Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy. Recently, we got a look at the set pictures, and Feig gave us some fun behind-the-scene shots, and honestly, the more we see and hear about this movie, the more we love it. See who's officially in the cast of the film, which comes out July 22, 2016.
McCarthy will lead the cast, reuniting with her Bridesmaids and Spy director Paul Feig.
Current Saturday Night Live cast member McKinnon is also starring. Not sure what the fuss is about her? Check out her funniest moments on SNL.
Jones, who joined SNL this season, will also be part of the Ghostbusters quartet.
Wiig, who also memorably worked with Feig on Bridesmaids, is playing a lead.
Back in June, Chris Hemsworth was cast as the receptionist for the ladies' ghostbusting business. Perfect.
Michael K. Williams
The Wire star Michael K. Williams has joined the cast as a character named Hawkins.
Veep star Walsh will costar as a character named Rourke.
It's been deleted, but original cast member Aykroyd posted a tweet saying, "On GB set shooting my scene with funny beautiful Kristen Wiig Lady GB's are adorable, hilarious and badass Exhilarating! #ghostbusters." Entertainment Weekly confirmed Aykroyd will appear in the film, but there's no official word on who he'll play.
Original Ghostbuster Bill Murray will appear in the new film, despite being famously hesitant about filmmakers taking on a reboot.
Potts, who played the team's secretary in the first movies, will appear.
