Production on Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot began yesterday, and were already getting pictures (thanks FameFlynet) from the set showing Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy and Kate McKinnon in action. The fourth ghostbuster, Leslie Jones, is noticeably but me thinks we’ll see her soon enough.
Thanks to the Boston Herald (and their script spies) we have an idea about the movie’s plot, which is being kept under wraps:
Wiig and McCarthy play a pair of unheralded authors who write a book positing that ghosts are real. Flash forward a few years and Wiig lands a prestigious teaching position at Columbia U. (Like the original, the story takes place in New York City, even though it’s being shot in Boston.) Which is pretty sweet, until her book resurfaces and she is laughed out of academia.
Wiig reunites with McCarthy and the other two proton pack-packing phantom wranglers, and she gets some sweet revenge when ghosts invade Manhattan and she and her team have to save the world.
