Emma Stone Passed On Ghostbusters

Emma Stone has told the Wall Street Journal that despite vocal support from Bill Murray over her comedy credentials she did indeed pass on the opportunity to be a part of the forthcoming all-female Ghostbusters reboot.

Explaining the decision not to join the likes of Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig in Paul Feig’s new version, she sited her reluctance to get locked into another franchise.

“The script was really funny,it just didn’t feel like the right time for me. A franchise is a big commitment–it’s a whole thing. I think maybe I need a minute before I dive back into that water.”

It’s perhaps hard to blame Stone for being bit ¬†wary about committing to risky big screen reboots, given her experiences with the recently aborted Amazing Spider-Man series.
