(Not A) Book-to-Film: The Ghostbusters Gender-swapped Remake

From Pink Is The New Blog:

Back in January, we learned officially that Melissa McCarthy,Kristen WiigLeslie Jones and Kate McKinnon have been cast as the leads in the upcoming all-female reamake of Ghostbusters. Today we learn that actor Chris Hemsworth has been cast in the film as their male receptionist. ...for this gender-swapped remake, it will be Hemsworth sitting at the front desk at Ghostbusters HQ answering all the calls. 

Well I'm generally in favor of Chris Hemsworth cast as anything, but this one has me particularly giddy.  With the cast they have lined up, I have a feeling this film is going to be as hilarious as everyone wants it to be.

Vulture also released a couple of photos shot from the set of the three leading women.  It's looking awesome, folks.  Awesome enough to deserve its own post, even if this film isn't based on a book.

  1. I'm getting so tired of remakes buy this one does look pretty funny. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

    1. There have been a lot of remakes lately, I agree. But I'm excited for this one too. Maybe I should finally watch the original. :)
