Melissa McCarthy doesn’t understand why Ghostbusters female reboot stoked so much hate

“Everyone should be able to tell the story they want to tell…”

While a new opus from Ghostbusters will be released in November in theaters, Melissa mccarthy was asked about the previous version by Yahoo!. In 2016, Paul Feig’s sci-fi comedy (My best friends), which took up the concept of Ghostbusters Yvan Reitman originals with a female cast (she was surrounded by Kristen wiig, Kate mckinnon and Leslie Jones) was very badly received by part of the public. Some did not appreciate that a bunch of girls take over from Bill Murray and his friends to hunt ghosts and it always annoys the actress, especially in the face of the expectation generated by the new episode of Jason Reitman, the son of the original director. , which in turn takes up the concept, this time with children as heroes.

What is the Ghostbusters remake worth?

“There is no limit to the stories you can tell, considers McCarthy. There are so many reboots and relaunched sagas, so many possible interpretations… So to say like that that one of them is completely wrong, I do not understand. I do not understand either this one-upmanship between who will be the most negative and the most hateful. Everyone should be able to tell the story they want to tell. If you don’t want to see the result, you don’t have to. “

Here is the trailer for Ghostbusters: Afterlife, who received from good reviews following its surprise screening at CinemaCon in Las Vegas a few weeks ago:
