As we all know, the ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot cast has been announced – Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon, Kristen Wigg, and Melissa McCarthy, and I’d love to talk about that.
I personally love all these comedians, especially Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon which you can see every Saturday on SNL. I personally don’t understand all the “controversy” on an all-female cast. These are all amazing comedians, and a lot of people love them.
When it comes to a reboot, I would personally hate to see the same thing in just a modern setting. An all-female ‘Ghostbusters’ is an amazing and creative and – I feel, most importantly – a progressive idea. The same thing again in a modern setting is obviously a dull idea. I feel like that’s why ‘The Amazing Spider-man’ movies didn’t do very well. It was different, but it wasn’t really all that new. Reboots always need to have more than just a few new elements.
The first name I was most excited about was Leslie Jones. I love her sense of humor, she’s so funny and is my favorite person on SNL right now. I think a role in ‘Ghostbusters’ is perfect for her. I think she’s the most perfect pick out of the four. I think Kate McKinnon is also hilarious and deserves this role just like all the others. I can’t wait to see both of these actresses do an absolutely great job.
I feel like Kristen Wigg and Melissa McCarthy were obvious choices. They’re both absolutely wonderful actresses and two of the funniest comedians right now. From what I can remember, I think they work perfectly with each other, and I’m excited to see them in these roles. I hope all these actresses can work well together in the movie.
And that’s how I feel about the ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot! I hope everyone has a great weekend!
