“If there’s something strange in your neighborhood, who ya gonna call? Ghostbusters”; Yes my friends there is a third “Ghostbusters” film but this is not chapter three at all and instead will be a reboot of the franchise and feature an all-female cast of comedians as the spectral hunters. You can check out the first full trailer and some of the cast by scrolling down below.
Plot: Erin Gilbert (Kristen Wiig) and Abby Yates (Melissa McCarthy) are a pair of unheralded authors who write a book positing that ghosts are real. A few years later, Gilbert lands a prestigious teaching position at Columbia University, but her book resurfaces and she is laughed out of academia. When ghosts invade Manhattan, Gilbert reunites with Yates, teaming up with a nuclear engineer, Jillian Holtzmann (Kate McKinnon), and a subway worker, Patty Tolan (Leslie Jones), to save the world from a mysterious evil and powerful demon known as Rowan (Neil Casey) who can exercise control over human forms.
