Paul Feig's All-Female 'Ghostbusters' Reboot Should Find His Cast In These 16 Women
[UPDATE: It's officially been confirmed that this project is moving forward! It has yet to be confirmed whether or not they're taking my casting suggestions.] There are a lot of amazing women in Hollywood. Those women need to get thrown into more well-written, well-directed ensemble comedies more often. Given that Paul Feig's talking a female-heavy Ghostbusters reboot, we've got no reason to think that time couldn't or shouldn't be right the eff now. Feig's Bridesmaids proved the sheer power of the female ensemble comedy, both financially and culturally. Which is why Feig's Ghostbusters already has us jonesing for some of these ladies to get calls to audition. We're so ready.
Someone give her her shot at breaking out in an ensemble comedy. She’s got the chops.
Ditto Poehler’s duh.
Like Schaal, I need someone to give Aisha Tyler the chance to break out in a big movie.
It’s a Paul Feig project, she seems like a shoo-in.
She’s a lady I need to see in more comedies. Get your Rose Byrne on, Jessica. Go for the funny.
She’s been around for ages and she’d be amazing.
I might just be at the stage where I want Lupita Nyong’o to be in everything. But picturing her as a nerdy glasses-wearing ghostbuster brings me joy.
This is a Paul Feig movie, I can’t not mention Kristen Wiig as a contender.
Not necessarily known for hilarity, but if we’re looking for a resident badass she’s your lady — and it’d be fun to see her stretch her comedy chops.
We already know she’s hilarious, and I want to see her work with someone like Poehler, Fey, or McCarthy. Or any of them, really.
I just really wanna see Lawrence as part of a female-heavy comedy ensemble. I feel like she could rock it.
I always love to see Bullock in lots of comedies alongside her dramatic stuff. Throwing her in to work with other awesome ladies tends to go well for everyone, too.
Woman’s got an Oscar. Just put her in there.
Please? It’s time to put Slate in a major role in a motion picture a la Bridesmaids. For the good of the world. Plus she’s already tweeted about it.
If she has any desire to break out from The Daily Show right now I’d be so there for that.
