Ghostbusters cast

The reboot of Ghostbusters featuring an all-female cast has been a point of contention ever since Sony Pictures announced plans to bring the hit 1984 film into the 21st century. Many fans of the original 80’s Ghostbusters starring Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver, Annie Potts and Rick Moranis, question as to why attempt to reboot a film that was beautifully and cleverly created by Ivan Reitman.  Others are chiming in by comparing the 80’s version with this latest. There are even a small group of misogynistic individuals attacking the movie for making the four lead characters women. Regardless where it comes from, the fact is director Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters, arriving in theaters on July 15th, is not getting the press it would like prior to its release.
