All-Female 'Ghostbusters' Cast Revealed
As millions of geeks rejoiced upon learning that Disney was considering Chris Pratt as the next Indiana Jones, The Hollywood Reporter dropped another huge bombshell this week that's bound to be a lot more divisive than the idea of Star-Lord in a fedora: The all-female Ghostbusters reboot has a cast.
