Another SNL member may join the next â€œGhostbustersâ€ film.
First reported on Film Divider, details had emerged that Paul Feig is looking at Saturday Night Liveâ€™s Cecily Strong for a non-Ghostbuster role in the film. If she signs, then she will join two current SNL members Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones and alumnus Kristen Wiig.
Melissa McCarthy is the only non-SNL cast member in the film, but she had hosted the shows on three different occasions.
Her character is described as â€œone of the biggest non-Ghostbuster parts aside from the villain.â€ She will play a figure who supports the heroinesâ€™ activities privately, but denounces them publicly to avoid a widespread panic.
According to the site, the role was specifically written for Strong by screenwriter Katie Dippold.
â€œGhostbustersâ€ is scheduled to be in theaters on July 22, 2016.
