Director Paul Feig began filming his new Ghostbusters movie in Boston this week and lots of people are excited about it. I am one of those people. With this news comes some details regarding the plot of the move, which is a new twist on the old story. The Boston Herald reports:
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.
Of course, we’ve already swooned over the fact that Chris Hemsworth will be in the film. Now, though, we can also report that Slimer will be back for this new adventure. No final word on whether the original ghostbusters (Dan Aykroyd and Bill Murray) will make cameos.
