4 Whippersnappers We’d Like To See As Ghostbusters
If anybody’s going to make beige boiler suits look cool…

Big news for fans of movies and feminism: Ghostbusters is making a comeback, and this time, there’s a female-led cast! Back of the net to equal opportunities. It’s supposedly going to be directed by Paul Feig, the guy behind everyone’s favourite blockbusting real-women-poo LOL fest, Bridesmaids.
We can only hope that the casting choices of the film’s producers are as innovative as those of Bridesmaids, whose line-up - including Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy and Maya Rudolph - was a solid representation of ages, shapes and sizes. Ghostbusters is said to be facing a complete shake up of plot line and cast, so we threw our hat in the ring with these veritable suggestions for casting.
Every Ghostbusting team needs a leader, and Maisie Williams has done enough to prove that she’s got what it takes. Having honed a dry sense of humour and the ability to ruthlessly kill grown men in Game of Thrones, we’re sure vacuuming up the paranormal will be a doddle for her.
With her already mammoth CV, there’s a strong chance that Chloe Moretz will actually end up on the cast list. Her appearances in Kick Ass, Carrie and (500) Days of Summer, as well as an impending role in highly anticipated ‘grown up’ flick Clouds Of Sils Maria, make her a top contender.
Baby J has insinuated that she wants to go into acting, and with big sis Kendall making the headlines seemingly every day, she’ll have to do something big to save from getting left behind. A spot on the Ghostbusters cast list could be a maker or breaker, and we’d definitely pay to see it either way.
Willow’s been a little quiet on the work front since her notorious banger Whip My Hair became the biggest non-anthem of 2010. Willow needs a pick me up to prove what she’s capable of and Ghostbusting could well be it - she’d rock a beige boiler suit better than anybody else. Maybe they could even rope her into helping out on the theme tune…
