I was thrilled when I found out they were remaking Ghostbusters with an all female cast. But the backlash that the film producers, directors actresses got was disgusting. The cast is fantastic, Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon will do a fabulous job and I cannot wait to see this film. I hear they are doing a male version too. But I won't be seeing that. A male cast is just too shocking.
Director Paul Feig has described the backlash against his all-female Ghostbusters reboot as “vile, misogynistic s**t”. The Bridesmaids filmmaker came close to quitting the movie after being “inundated with hate” for his modern vision. “I almost went, ‘Maybe I should just not do this, maybe this is a bad idea’,” “The people that reach out to you most vociferously are the haters. This is the downside of the internet. Let’s say you get bombarded by 500 people. Your Twitter feed is going to explode and you’re like, ‘F**k, the whole world’s against me’. But then you go, ‘Wait, that’s 500 people’.” Feig revealed his plans to remake the Eighties classic last October, before Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon were unveiled as the cast in January.
