Rebel Wilson

  1. Kate McKinnon, Ghostbusters, 2015.    Or Ghostbusterettes…  Finally, after a wait of 27 years, a third ’busters movie. This time, they’re all women. Paul Feig women  like Melissa McCarthy,  Kristen Wiig and… well, it was going to be Wilson, Anna Faris, Jennifer Lawrence or Emma Stone.
  2. Kate Hudson, Kung Fu Panda 3, 2015.       Wilson‘s increasingly busy diary got in the way.  Enter: Goldie Hawn’s daughter. As the new voice for Mei Mei (first female panda lead in the franchise), romantically obsessed with Po, the head panda and Dragon Warrior. It says here.
  3. Melissa McCarthy, Ghostbusters: Answer the Call, 2016.  “Ain’t no bitches gonna hunt no ghosts,” said an on-line video in the film – and zillions of Ghostfans across the planet. And try as it did (with too many Hot Shots!gags), the “comedy” failed rather than the ladies. When McCarthy was due as Patty, Wilson and Amy Shumer were seen for Abby. (Eliza Dushku, Anna Faris, Alyssa Milano were potential Girlbusters  before the project became a reboot).
