Paranormal activity is on the rise, folks, and there’s only one crack team to call. In a few months’ time, Paul Feig’s long-awaited Ghostbusters reboot will stomp into theaters and going off of the recent and ominous teaser, it’s shaping up to be one of the biggest draws of the blockbuster season.
Steering the modern-day reimagining in a whole new direction, Feig has cast Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon as the titular scientists. But the Bridesmaids director is clearly conscious of respecting what has come before, upholding the franchise legacy by including Bill Murray as a cameo. That said, a new report suggests that Murray isn’t the only familiar face we’ll see when Ghostbusters looms into theaters.
Hitting the interwebs via “Pixel Dan” Eardley, an image from the recent Toy Fair 2016 appears to indicate that the squad’s iconic logo will come back to haunt them – quite literally.
Without further ado, meet Rowan:
All we know for sure is that Neil Casey has been cast as the big bad in Sony’s female-driven reboot, but could the Saturday Night Live star rain terror down on the streets of the Big Apple as Rowan? Time will tell. If this is to be an origins story, I guess there’s no better place to draw inspiration for a villain than the one logo that has remained a constant of the franchise across the decades.
On the ghostly heels of last week’s teaser, expect the full Ghostbusters trailer to drop on March 3. Paul Feig’s all-female reboot will then storm theaters on July 15.
