A reboot has long been in the works with the original cast, however both Bill Murry’s reluctance and the unfortunate death of Harold Ramis put the project at a stand still, until now. Although three of the four ladies are still in negotiations, if they ink, they could be looking at a shooting schedule that could start as early as this summer.
McCarthy, Wiig and Feig have already proven to be a winning combination, they previous worked together on the set of Bridesmaids which catapulted McCarthy and Wiig’s careers to the next level.
Jones, also no stranger to the big screen, can currently be seen in Chris Rock’s Top Five. She was recently promoted to a feature on SNL after starting early last year.
McKinnon, also an SNL vet, has been a member of the SNL cast since 2012 and has even was nominated for an Emmy for her work on the show.
