Melissa McCarthy Talks 'Ghostbusters' Reboot: 'It's a Dream!'
Melissa McCarthy arrives at the airport in Atlanta, Georgia on Wednesday (March 18) to begin filming her new movie Michelle Darnell.
The 44-year-old actress recently chatted about her upcoming film Ghostbusters!
“Oh my god, I cannot be more excited to reboot it. I mean, I’m a huge Ghostbusters fan – who isn’t? I’ve seen that movie, like, 50,000 times. I just introduced it to my two kids, who loved it,” Melissa said. “To get to work on such a great thing with that group of women is a dream…I’ve known Kristen [Wiig] forever, and I know Kate [McKinnon] and Leslie [Jones] from SNL, so it’s just going to be a blast.”
When asked if she thinks they’ll be able to add a fresh take to the film, Melissa said, “Absolutely. For sure. Yes because it’s a female cast, but also because is going to put a really modern, current twist on it. It will be scary and have good action. He pulls from the classics but he’s a very modern director. I truly believe they could not have picked a better director to launch that franchise.”
