With Paul Feig’s rebooted take on GHOSTBUSTERS getting ready to shoot in Boston, we were bound to start hearing some new details on the film sooner than later, and thanks to the Boston Herald, we have exactly that!
Here’s what the site had to say:
Wiig and McCarthy play a pair of unheralded authors who write a book positing that ghosts are real. Flash forward a few years and Wiig lands a prestigious teaching position at Columbia U. Which is pretty sweet, until her book resurfaces and she is laughed out of academia. Wiig reunites with McCarthy and the other two proton pack-packing phantom wranglers, and she gets some sweet revenge when ghosts invade Manhattan and she and her team have to save the world.
While I, myself, don’t exactly call this next bit a SPOILER, you sensitive types may want to steer clear for a second, as the site goes on to report that the fan-favorite ghost, Slimer, from the original film will be making an appearance. Cameo appearances by any of the original Ghostbusters are apparently still up in the air, so there’s that.
The new GHOSTBUSTERS will star Kristen Wiig (below), Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, Melissa McCarthy and Chris Hemsworth. It is expected to land in theaters in July of next year.
