With a cast that includes the likes of Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, and Chris Hemsworth, you’d think Paul Feig’s currently filming Ghostbusters reboot would try to find another big name for the film’s villain. And you’d be wrong! Rather than cast another recognizable face, Feig has recruited Neil Casey into the ensemble. While you may not know that name, chances are strong that you’ve seen at least one project that has his name attached.

Just last week, director Paul Feig gave us our first look at the new proton pack from his upcoming Ghostbusters movie, which looked like a pretty serious and legit accessory for his four women Ghostbusters. Coupled with the excellent new costumes, this movie is really getting us excited.
Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters already has an insanely great cast: Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon, and Chris Hemsworth. But a Ghostbusters needs more than Ghostbusters. There must be ghosts, along with assorted kinds of bureaucracy to bust along the way. To that end, Feig is filling out the rest of his Ghostrebooters with some more talented actors.
Ghostbusters is currently filming in Boston, but aside from the occasional paparazzi photo, we haven’t seen anything official from the upcoming reboot. That all changed today as director Paul Feig tweeted out a photo of the new costumes that will be worn by the leading ladies, and they look pretty great.
Who ya gonna call? Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and (sadly not pictured in the set photos below) Leslie Jones. The ladies are the stars of Paul Feig’s upcoming Ghostbusters film, and the first photos have leaked from the set, showing off Wiig, McCarthy and a messy McKinnon in costume as their wacky onscreen characters.
Emma Stone is, in fact, afraid of no ghosts. Or maybe it’s more accurate to say she’s afraid of remakes of no ghosts. Because the actress has revealed that Paul Feig wanted her for his upcoming reboot/remake/rewhatever of Ivan Reitman’s Ghostbusters. And she also revealed that she turned Feig down.
This new extended trailer for The Peanuts Movie hints at a film that's a bit more charming than you might expect. It also looks like it could be a legitimately good coming-of-age film, which seems about right with Paul Feig involved as a producer — he may be best known these days for his female-driven comedy films, but Feig is also the guy responsible for Freaks and Geeks, one of the greatest television shows of all time.
If you had told us about a year ago that Chris Hemsworth would be starring in the new Ghostbusters movie, we never would’ve guessed he’d be the one sitting behind the desk answering phones. But, the Marvel action hero has indeed signed on to Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot as the ersatz Janine Melnitz to Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones.
Paul Feig’s The Heat took a genre that has traditionally belonged to men — the buddy cop movie — and gave it a female twist. Feig’s new movie, Spy, does much the same thing, this time for spy films, a world that has long been by, about, and for dudes and their power fantasies. Spy explicitly subverts the genre’s typical gender dynamics by casting Melissa McCarthy as a lowly, desk-bound CIA analyst named Susan Cooper, who has spent her entire career in the shadow of a glamorous James Bond-esque spy (Jude Law) and then finally gets her opportunity to step into the spotlight and become a full-fledged field agent.
Welcome back to another installment of Post Credits, ScreenCrush’s movie review show. On this week’s episode, ScreenCrush Editor-in-Chief Mike Sampson and Managing Editor and Film Critic Matt Singer each debate whether to use their license to kill on Spy, the new action comedy from Bridesmaids director Paul Feig and star Melissa McCarthy.
