Ghostbuster Reboot is on the Horizon

We all have waited patiently...... well most of us have waited patiently. I will admit I was not one of the patient fans waiting for a Ghostbusters Sequel by any means. I constantly searched the internet for news of a sequel and my dreams have officially died. We all know that most of the team was ready to sign on, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson had agreed to reprise their characters, Bill Murray was a hold out. Unfortunately Ramis passed away and the whole project fell apart. However Hollywood being what it is today decided to not do a sequel but a reboot. They did not go as far as Steel Magnolias but did go extreme by having an all female cast. 

Melissa McCarthy is signed on. Sony is currently negotiating with Kristen Wigg, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon. They are expected to sign on and start a summer shoot in New York. I guess my question is will Sigourney Weaver make an appearance. That would be nice. I hope that they pay proper respects to the classic and do not disrespect the fans. This is a go to comfort movie for many of us and I fear that in trying to make money they will upset the fans of the franchise. 

I will sit back and wait, sipping my imaginary HI-C EctoCooler like I am Kermit with tea. Hopefully that will be the only meme associated with this and not the ashamed bear.  What are your thoughts on this all female reboot?
