‘Ghostbusters’ Reboot Cast and Release Date Announced

By: Sierra Jackson

Director Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, The Heat) surprised fans today with, not one, but two huge announcements. The first update arrived via Twitter on Jan. 27 when he posted a photo of these four stars that contained no caption.

Approximately four hours later, he tweeted, “In other news, ‪#Ghostbusters will be hitting theaters July 22, 2016. Save the date!” confirming the casting choices.

Ghostbusters and Bridesmaids fans alike will be pleased to know that Melissa McCarthy (Mike and Molly) along with Saturday Night Live’s Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones will star as the famous ghost-busting team in the upcoming reboot.

While the movie is still in the pre-production stage, filming is set to begin this year. No plot announcements have been made at this time.
