Melissa McCarthy

The second rumors began circulating of an all-female Ghostbusters, the first person people though of was Melissa McCarthy. The Bridesmaids star is the most popular female comedic actress out there right now and her inclusion seemed like a forgone conclusion. That got even more likely when her frequent collaborator, Paul Feig, signed on to direct.

However, while McCarthy will probably, eventually, end up in the new Ghostbusters film, she said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, she not yet been cast. Watch McCarthy talk about the film, along with Lena Dunham and Ellen DeGeneres, below. Read More »

At the center of it all is the spokeman for the franchise: co-writer and star Dan Aykroyd.

In a new interview Aykroyd offers up a totally new reason for the delay and it’s one that makes a good amount of sense, considering the climate in Hollywood. Aykroyd said everyone involved in the project isn’t just looking at Ghostbusters 3. They’re looking at a whole Ghostbusters universe: prequels, sequels, TV shows and more in hopes of building a connected, multimedia Ghostbusters franchise like Disney has with Marvel. Read More »
