We’ve all heard the news and controversy surrounding Paul Feig's 2016 reboot of Ghostbusters featuring an all-female cast, have we really explored what would come of this seemingly strategic casting job? Strong heroic women saving a city from supernatural forces – it sounds agreeable enough, superficially. But what is the motive behind this maneuver? An optimist might assert that studio executives actually trust female performers to carry what was historically a male-centric franchise. This writer, however, can’t help but suspect that it’s all merely a gimmick that producers are using out of desperation because the original cast members are either retired, dead, disinterested, or Dan Aykroyd.
