Chris Hemsworth is all set to play the receptionist in the “Ghostbusters” reboot dominated by female characters. The news was confirmed by director Paul Feig on Twitter.
Sony was keen on casting Hemsworth from the very beginning, but the actor was not too ardent as the role was small. Sony then sent the script back for rework. As a result, you will get to see Chris Hemsworth in “Ghostbusters.”
The gender-flipped movie with four women playing ghost-fighters will be released on July 2016. The movie starring Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, Kristen Wiig, and Kate McKinnon will be directed by the “Spy” director. The script is written by Katie Dippold.
According to a report from the HuffPost Live, the director is excited to make the characters completely different from the original ones.
“I took a number of months after I signed on and walked around doing different amalgamations of different actors — I mean everybody, giant actresses, everything — because I was like, who could it be?”
Feig also mentioned, “I knew I needed four people who were very different and yet would be funny together, and really, I kind of cast it in my head and contacted them, and they all wanted to do it.”
