Here are Bill Murray’s picks for an all-female Ghostbusters cast

bill murray offers picks female ghostbusters cast
It was reported last month that the long-awaited third Ghostbusters movie may actually happen, but with an all-female cast taking over for the famous paranormal investigators played by Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, and Ernie Hudson. Nothing is official yet regarding casting for the film, but that didn’t stop Murray from offering up some suggestions of his own regarding the film’s casting.

In an interview with The Toronto Star, Murray acknowledged that he’d heard all of the recent rumors regarding the Ghostbusters sequel, including the possibility that Bridesmaids director will be behind the camera for the film.

“I’m fine with it,” said Murray of all the recent news regarding the potential filmmaker and cast. “I would go to that movie, and they’d probably have better outfits, too.”

Along with offering his blessing for the project, Murray suggested a few actresses who — he believed — would be great casting choices for the film. Among them were Bridesmaids actresses Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig, who have both been mentioned for roles. McCarthy is co-starring with Murray in his new film, St. Vincent, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival.

“Melissa would be a spectacular Ghostbuster,” he said. “And Kristen Wiig is so funny — God, she’s funny!”

Murray didn’t stop there with his casting suggestions, either.

“I like this girl Linda Cardellini (Mad Men) a lot,” he added. “And Emma Stone is funny. There are some funny girls out there.”

With McCarthy also in attendance at the festival, she was soon told of Murray’s suggestion and asked whether she’d be interested in donning a proton pack for the film.

“I think that somebody is really trying to do it, but nobody has talked to me about it,” she said of the project. “Listen, if the people I think are doing it are doing it, I must never question them.”

“Oh, my God, that’s daunting,” she added. “That’s taking on a legend, a legendary movie. But I would do anything with those ladies, anything at all.”
