Plot Details For The All-Female GHOSTBUSTERS

According to HitFix, with the cast of the all-female Ghostbusters is set; they're now confident to share details on the plot and potential casting for other roles in the film.   Melissa McCarthy (Mike & Molly), Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids), Leslie Jones (Saturday Night Live), and Kate McKinnon (Saturday Night Live) are not simply playing new versions of Spengler, Stantz, Zeddmore and Venkman.  Instead, this will be a complete remake, with no connection to the original Ghostbusters films as Sony would like original Ghostbuster Bill Murray to play the villain.  Here's a rundown of additional details on the remake.

+Kristen Wiig is playing Erin Garber, a published author on the subject of the paranormal.  Erin now works for Columbia University.

+Leslie Jones is playing Abby Bergman, who co-authored the book with Garber.  Since publication, the two former colleagues had a falling out and went their separate ways. Abby more actively chases ghost a la Ghost Hunters.  This tension between academic investigation (Wiig's character) and mainstream media investigation (Jones' character) is central to the story.

+Kate McKinnon is playing Abby Berman's new partner, Jillian.

+Melissa McCarthy is playing Patty, an NYC subway worker who stumbles across the main, supernatural threat in the film.

+Sony wants Peter Dinklage to play the main villain in the film.  Whether this role is as a ghost or human is unclear.

+Sony also wants Bill Murray to play a character named Martin Heiss, a man who is "a professional supernatural debunker who is out to prove that the Ghostbusters are frauds."
