Lizzy Caplan And Amy Schumer Linked For GHOSTBUSTERS Reboot
Another day and another leaked Sony email. The newest one via TheDailyBeast concerns Sony's reboot of Ghostbusters with director Paul Feig's all-female concept. Well we've been hearing a few names of people who have met with the studio and Feig. They include Emma Stone (linked when it was Ghostbusters 3), Rebel Wilson and Jennifer Lawrence.
"Paul's movie is gonna be the first one and from what I'm hearing jennifer lawrence and Emma stone and Melissa McCarthy and Amy schumer and liszzy [Lizzy] Kaplan [Caplan] just to name a few have already said thy wanted to be in....,”
The email from Sony's Amy Pascal to producer Ivan Reitman confirms Emma Stone and Jennifer Lawrence are indeed in the mix for the reboot. Along with Lizzy Caplan (Cloverfield, The Interview, Party Down) , Amy Schumer (Trainwreck) and Feig's lucky charm Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids, The Heat). This is the first time hearing about comedic actresses Lizzy and Amy, making a lot of sense since the two are apart of their big comedy features Seth Rogen's The Interview and Judd Apatow's Trainwreck.
It's been assumed for ages that McCarthy was a lock for a role, similar to Emma Stone being linked since the studio resurrected sequel development. Both getting the Bill Murray bump, previously working with him in Zombieland and St. Vincent.
I'm digging this lineup, but hopefully we get more diversity.
