'Ghostbusters' casting for starring and supporting roles

Production will begin soon on the reboot feature film Ghostbusters based on the blockbuster 1984 film, and the casting director is auditioning talent for starring and supporting roles.

Slap Jack Productions and Feigco Entertainment in association with Pascal Pictures and The Montecito Picture Company, will begin shooting the sci-fi-fantasy comedy live-action feature film Ghostbusters on June 8, 2015 in Boston Massachusetts. The Primetime Emmy Award winning casting director is auditioning actors in Los Angeles for lead and supporting roles. Extras will be cast throughout production beginning in June. Shooting will run through the end of August, 2015. Film crew members can submit resumes by email to the production company. Full details below.

Ghostbusters centers on a group of female ghost hunters... Erin, Abby, Jillian, and Patty. Erin Gabler, is an academic on the tenure track at Columbia. Her former colleague and co-author is Abby Bergman, who’s more on the pop parapsychology side of things, and pursues ghosts for a living. Jillian is Abby’s ghost hunting partner. Patty is an MTA employee who comes across the main ghost. The villain will be a convicted murderer, who turns into a ghost after his execution is hit by a supercharged electrical storm. This gives him the power to raise an army of other ghosts, which could be made up of famous villains throughout history.

Starring in Ghostbusters is Academy Award nominee Melissa McCarthy playing the role of Patty; Academy Award nominee Kristen Wiig as Erin Gabler; two-time Primetime Emmy Award nominee Kate McKinnon playing ghost hunter Jillian; and WGA Award nominee Leslie Jones in the role of Abby Bergman.

Four-time Primetime Emmy Award nominee Paul Feig will direct Ghostbusters from a screenplay that he wrote with Writers Guild of America WGA Award winner Katie Dippold. Producers are Academy Award nominee Ivan Reitman and Hollywood Film Awards winner Amy Pascal.
Katie Dippold will co-produce. Executive producers are Michele Imperato and Jessie Henderson. Academy Award nominee Dan Aykroyd will also serve as executive producer. The film is slated for a $154 million budget. Ghostbusters is scheduled to hit theaters on Jul 22, 2016.
