Gillian was answering some important questions recently in a Reddit Q&A when she was queried regarding the slated film. The moment Gillian got whiff of the fact that the movie will have only females in it, she showed an inordinate amount of interest in it.
"OH MY GOD, I just looked it up online," she wrote. "Paul Feig, cast me now! Start a Twitter petition! I'm free!!!!! I'm free I'm free and I'm funny goddamnit!"
Clearly, she wants to play a role in Ghostbusters 3 and she will do anything to get the part. The actress almost lost her cool and spoke of how she was so excited to learn of the vacancy.
She said “cast me now” several times in a row and even thought of starting a petition to have her cast in the movie. Gillian expressed the fact that she was so funny and would be the perfect actress for the movie.
Meanwhile director Paul Feig has provoked a healthy ferment by announcing the preliminary proceedings for the movie. He made the announcement via his Twitter. See his tweet below.
Paul declared that indeed he was going to be producing a third version of the classic Ghostbusters movie franchise and he needed spunky and funky females who could make others laugh their heads off to fit the roles in the movie.
Among those he will approach may be included: Bill Murray, Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Linda Cardellini and Emma Stone. McCarthy especially said in response that it was a challenge alright to act in such a big movie.
She said that nevertheless she would consider it an honor to act in the project. "Oh my god, that's daunting," McCarthy said. "That's taking on a legend, a legendary movie. But I would do anything with those ladies, anything at all."
Meanwhile, if Feig wants Gillian Anderson on board his franchise, he had better act now. The reason is that Gillian may also be involved in the making of a third part of The X-Files pretty soon.
And then she will be so busy that any chance of her acting in Ghostbusters 3 will be close to nil. The window of opportunity for both Gillian and Feig is limited and the sooner either one avails it on a mutual basis, the better it would be.
Otherwise it might be too late and Feig would have to make do with whatever stock characters he got while Gillian moved on to other roles in more lucrative ventures.
