The popular comedy franchise "Ghostbusters" has now found its new protagonists in these four women.
A report from Hollywood Reporter indicated that Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones are now in negotiations to appear in the upcoming reboot of the film which will be helmed by "Bridesmaid" director Paul Feig.
Except for McCarthy who has already signed on for the forthcoming project, THR added that Wiig and the two stars from "Saturday Night Live" are still currently in talks to join on board.

Mali Music, Grammy-nominated Christian recording artist, headlines a new musical presentation on the life of Jesus Christ titled Revival! The Experience, a "mixed media virtual experience" that is expected to be released in theaters sometime this year.

The new project has been described by creators as "dramatizing supremely constructed original contemporary and gospel music that helps recount the mission, ministry and miracles of Jesus." more >>
American Sniper isn't just a hit, it's on its way to a colossal box-office return. It's already the tenth-highest grossing movie of 2014 (the movie opened in select theaters at Christmas) and is well on its way to the top three — this despite a furious backlash from the Left, with rhetoric that routinely borders on the hysterical. Yet the people still come, in droves. Friends of mine are relating how, days later, the movie is still having an impact on them, making them think more about the war, about the experience of veterans, and the nature of our enemy.
All of this represents a defeat for a cultural Left that is used to getting its way. It is used to exercising the power to name and shame — to exclude politically incorrect discourse and entertainment from American pop culture and public life. Until recently, anyway.
If one looks back at the large-scale cultural fights of the past three years, there's an emerging pattern: When the Left butts heads with a "red" institution, seeking to diminish its influence in red America, the backlash is intense. Remember the Chick-fil-A boycotts so swamped by "buycotts" that restaurants actually ran out of chicken? Or remember A&E's capitulation in the face of overwhelming support for Phil Robertson? Then there was of course the almost laughably ineffective boycott of Hobby Lobby, where hosts of people who never go to craft stores anyway pledged to somehow put the company out of business for resisting the HHS abortion-pill mandate. more >>
