Melissa McCarthy ‘Ghostbusters’ Not a Remake

Melissa McCarthy who’s latest movie “Spy” alongside Jason Statham, Jude Law and Rose Byrne is yet to hit the theaters in some territories has already become vocal about her next venture which happens to be the reboot of “Ghostbusters,” one of the most popular movie ever made. The “Spy” actress spilled some beans about this venture giving some details.

According to Yahoo! Movies, the actress said quite a few things when she was on the Howard Stern show about the upcoming movie. One of the things that she mentioned was that the Paul Feig directorial will not be a remake as it is being speculated. The actress mentioned that the director is going to reboot the movie completely instead of remaking it since the original movie has so much importance in the minds of the fan that it is too classic to touch.

This isn’t the first time the actress has teamed up with the director. He has also directed her in movies like “Bridesmaids”, “The Heat” and because of that the actress is sure that she will be able to do justice to the role that she has been offered in her next. Rest of the cast of the movie also boasts of the best that comedy can offer. Alongside Melissa, audiences will see Kristen Wiig her “Bridesmaids” co-star and “Saturday Night Live” actress Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones.

Director Paul Feig had said nothing until now when he shared how he felt about bringing back “Ghostbusters” to life. The director mentioned that a lot of thinking went in the making of the movie. But nothing would excite him. He would often ask himself as to how would he make this movie, what would be his approach? He was also offered to direct a sequel but couldn’t do so for the same reason. But when the idea of creating an all female cast came up, his levels of curiosity started to increase and that got him aboard to direct the movie.

The director is currently on a promotional tour of his latest film “Spy” with Melissa McCarthy and could not divulge any more details.
