We know, we know. Though we are excited to see what Paul Feig can do with his upcoming all-lady Ghostbusters reboot, some fans of the original films are less than jazzed with the prospect. Lucky for you, we’ve got something for everyone today: another Ghostbusters 3 rumor from Dan Aykroyd AND a look at who will be joining Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, and Leslie Simon in the reboot.
First, Jessica Chobot is breaking down the idea of the 2016 reboot launching a shared Ghostbusters universe. After Akroyd’s recent comments about that elusive Ghostbusters sequel, we have to wonder how that would work. I mean, think about it: could the lady-busters come across a supernatural evil so ghastly they have to jump through time and space to enlist the help of the OG-busters? Sign. Us. UP.
And in slightly more tangible news, another SNL alum has joined the reboot cast: none other than Cecily Strong! Find out more about what role she’ll be tackling in today’s spectre-cular episode of Nerdist News.
What do you think about a Ghostbusters shared universe? Do you (kindly) wish Dan Aykroyd would stop getting our hopes up, or are you on board for a Ghostbusters 3? Let us know in the comments below!
