Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot is revealing bits and pieces here and there. Those who are unhappy with the all female cast might not like the latest gender reversal either. Feig chose to transition Annie Potts’ classic Janine Melnitz into a male character to and his choice of beefy Thor actor Chris Hemsworth as the nerd receptionist might raise a few eyebrows. Feig’s no slouch at comedy you know, making the hilarious Bridesmaids and Spy.
There are rumors that the first official trailer might launch during the Superbowl. But the reboot still faces an slight uphill battle, since it will be judged by its own merits and against the ’84 classic and its well-oiled comedy team. But with a cast like Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, Melissa McCarthy and Kate McKinnon how can you go wrong? They all have me laughing without saying a word!
Ghostbusters will be out July 15th, 2016.
