Potential Ghostbusters 3 Cast Revealed; Jennifer Lawrence Ain’t Afraid of No Ghosts?


Just a couple days after learning that Rebel Wilson is potentially on board for the upcoming Ghostbusters 3, which looks to be a total reboot rather than a sequel, an interesting tidbit has leaked that suggests possible involvement from a handful of pretty big Hollywood names. So read on for the latest.

The Daily Beast reports on a leaked series of e-mails between Amy Pascal, co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment, and Ivan Reitman, director/producer of the original Ghostbusters film.

The e-mails reveal the names of several actresses allegedly interested in answering the call, and they also spill some key details about Paul Feig’s reboot.

Agree that everyone is way too nervous about this issue and how we present it, but it isn’t a sequel to the 80s movies and it is gonna be totally original with completely different characters and our job is to find a clever way to connect the movie to the original franchise so that we can use all the assets and everything that is great about the original franchise,” the email read.

Paul’s movie is gonna be the first one and from what I’m hearing Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone and Melissa McCarthy and Amy Schumer and Lizzy Kaplan, just to name a few, have already said they wanted to be in.”

All we know for sure is that Paul Feig is officially going to be the man to bring Ghostbusters back to the big screen in the form of an all-female reboot written by Katie Dippold (The Heat). As stated earlier, it appears that his film will be taking place in a world where the events of the previous two films never happened, thereby ensuring that it’s not going to be any sort of sequel.

I love origin stories,” said Feig, when asked about the general direction he was going with the story. “That’s my favorite thing. I love the first one so much I don’t want to do anything to ruin the memory of that. So it just felt like, let’s just restart it because then we can have new dynamics. I want the technology to be even cooler. I want it to be really scary, and I want it to happen in our world today that hasn’t gone through it so it’s like, oh my God, what’s going on?
