So it’s not set in stone just yet, but Variety is reporting that Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones are all in talks for roles in the upcoming remake/reboot that has fans in a tizzy.
Several sources say Jones is likely to play a government official similar to the role William Atherton played in the original. Allegedly, the plan is to land “Game of Thrones” fav Peter Dinklage for the villain role. He would play the ghost of a murderer who resurrects a ghost army based on historical characters.
Paul Feig is directing with Katie Dippold penning the script.
