Jennifer Lawrence Also Met With ‘Ghostbusters’ Reboot Director Paul Feig
It’s safe to assume that we’re going to start hearing that just about every talented woman has met or talked with Paul Feig in the coming months, as the director begins casting his all-female ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot. This week, Rebel Wilson said that she met with Feig about a possible role in the film, and now Jennifer Lawrence admits that she also met with Feig recently. As an added bonus, Lawrence had no idea that ‘Ghostbusters 2’ was a real thing.
MTV UK put together this delightful and charming video in which their recent interview subjects were all asked who they would like to see in the all-female ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot. Actors like Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway, Julianne Moore, Shailene Woodley, and even Christian Bale (along with director Ridley Scott) all provided some interesting choices, and it’s not surprising that the most popular names were Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy, who also starred in Feig’s ‘Bridesmaids.’
But then the video gets to Jennifer Lawrence, interviewed alongside her ‘Hunger Games: Mockingjay’ co-stars Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson. Lawrence says that she recently had dinner with Paul Feig, and given that she’s being asked about ‘Ghostbusters,’ we can assume that she discussed the film with Feig. Maybe. Probably. The video below is worth it even more for Lawrence’s shock when she finds out that there was already a ‘Ghostbusters’ sequel, and Hemsworth tells her that it wasn’t as good as the first one:
