Rebel Wilson (Pitch Perfect, Pain and Gain) might be one of the first cast to strap an unlicensed nuclear accelerator to her back, Proton Pack for those who do not get the reference. On Today Wilson admits she has been approached for a role in the all-female Ghostbusters.
“I have had a meeting,” Wilson reveals. “But who knows? They will have to look at the script when it’s finished… I’d do that for free. I probably shouldn’t say that live on TV.”
I don’t hate this choice. I personally made up a cast list a while ago in my own head of comedic actresses and this was my list. Especially if we are trying to match personalities.
Venkman – Rebel Wilson, or Amy Schumer
Stantz – Emily Blunt
Spengler – Kate Micucci
Zeddmore – Aisha Tyler
UPDATE: According to Joe Schmoe, it looks like Jennifer Lawrence has ALSO met for talks.
