Could an all-female Ghostbusters 3 actually happen? The answer is yes. The idea of rebooting the legendary comedy has created a heated debate online. Some people love the idea of an all-female reboot, and some people think the idea is the worst thing since purple ketchup.
But what does Dr. Peter Venkman (Bill Murray) think? Well, he’s a big fan of the idea. He told Access Hollywood the following…
“It sounds great to me. It sounds as good an idea as any other! There are a lot of women that could scare off any kind of vapor! No, it’s a grand idea, I don’t know who they’re talking about, but it’s a good idea, I would watch it!”
And he’s passionate about the idea. He even had some casting suggestions during an interview with Toronto Star.
“Melissa [McCarthy] would be a spectacular Ghostbuster. And Kristen Wiig is so funny — God, she’s funny! I like this girl Linda Cardellini a lot. And Emma Stone is funny. There are some funny girls out there.”
Melissa McCarthy is one of the obvious choices here. We learned last month that Columbia Pictures wanted Paul Feig to direct the movie. Feig and McCarthy have a long history, working together to create Bridesmaids and The Heat.
While the idea of this Ghostbusters reboot has generated a lot of buzz, it’s important to remember that nothing is official. No one has agreed to do anything; however, the amount of support seems to be growing.
What do you think? Do you like the idea?
