Let’s Dream-Cast the All-Lady ‘Ghostbusters 3’

The potentially not-awful Ghostbusters franchise reboot with an all-female cast could be one of the best things ever to happen in the world (or at least the best thing that could happen for a franchise that’s over two decades old). If I had my way, here’s who I’d cast:

Emma Stone as Peter Venkman
Even though she declined a role, Emma Stone is essentially the female Bill Murray, so who else could play this part? She has the sarcastic delivery down already. Plus, if Bill wants to cameo as a ghost, as he’s joked (?) about in the past, hey, he has a history of playing dead characters in Emma’s movies.

Christina Hendricks as Egon Spengler
Christina does playful no-nonsense well, and if Mad Men has taught us anything, it’s that she’s able to stand out even in an ensemble.
femaleghostbusters_melissamccarthyraystantz.jpg
Melissa McCarthy as Ray Stantz
Paul Feig (who’s helming the potential reboot) has to cast Melissa, legally (probably).

Zoe Saldana as Winston Zeddemore
Let Zoe act in a franchise in her own skin again.

And please please please PLEASE let Tilda Swinton play ALL the ghosts.

The first movie that Nadia Chaudhury’s father took her to see in theaters was Ghostbusters.
