The upcoming female-led Ghostbusters film has released its synopsis, and it goes a little something like this: The movie will be centered on two characters played by Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthey who pen a book explaining that ghosts actually exist. Initial release of the book is a major letdown, and eventually leads to Wiig losing her job at Columbia University. It’s at this point in her life that she and McCarthey team up with Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones to form the newly aligned Ghostbusters.
