After months of speculation and people putting forward suggestions for their dream casts, it looks like the ensemble for Paul Feig’s all-female Ghostbusters reboot is finally taking shape. While rumored 'busters Emma Stone and Jennifer Lawrence sadly didn't make the cut, Feig seems to have assembled a pretty fearsome gang of comedy goddesses, with a source telling The Hollywood Reporter that Melissa McCarthy has signed on to play one of the leads, with Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon all currently in talks for the others.
According to THR, "negotoations are ongoing," but Feig appeared to confirm the casting on his twitter:
If you're counting, that's two Bridesmaids, two current “SNL”-ers, three “SNL” alums, and yep, still only one non-white Ghostbuster. Baby steps, we guess?
