Mindy Kaling Predicted The "Ghostbusters" Reboot Four Years Ago

And her dream cast is on point, of course.

Posted on

You may have heard that there's a Ghostbusters reboot happening.

The next #Ghostbusters is officially hitting theaters July 2016. Who’s ready to believe us?!

And that it will star Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon.

But you might not have known that comedian, writer, and (now) pre-cognitive icon Mindy Kaling predicted a Ghostbusters reboot starring all women actors four years ago.

I always wanted the reboot of Ghostbusters to be four girl-ghostbusters. Like four normal, plucky women living in New York City searching for Mr. Right and trying to find jobs – but they also bust ghosts.

Mindy cast herself in a leading role, because she knows what the people really want.

And also cast Emily Blunt...

...rap artist Natalie Portman...

...and Taraji P. Henson aka Cookie Lyon herself.

I know the demographic for Ghostbusters is teenage boys, and I know they would kill themselves if they saw two ghostbusters getting a makeover at Sephora. I just have always wanted to see a cool girl having her first kiss with a guy she's had a crush on, and then have to excuse herself to go trap the pissed-off ghosts of the Triangle Shirtwaist fire or something.

So now you know: Mindy can see the future.
