'Ghostbusters' Reboot Star Leslie Jones Clears up Remarks About Upcoming Sequel

The Saturday Night Live star continued: '(Trump voice) "Gonna redo ghostbusteeeeers, better with men, will be huge. And I don't give a f- I'm saying something!" Jones added replacing the all female team - portrayed by Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig and Kate McKinnon - was "like something [President Donald Trump] would do".

Comedian Leslie Jones played Patty Tolan in Feig's reboot and she has been extremely critical of Reitman's upcoming film.

She temporarily left Twitter in 2016 after after facing torrents of racial abuse, which was exacerbated by alt-right grifter Milo Yiannopolous.

"It's very said that this is [the] response I get", she wrote.

Leslie Jones has expressed anger over the announcement of a new Ghostbusters movie that will follow the timeline of the 1984 original. Sure enough, the new one would act as though that one never happened. It might feel that "boys are better" it makes my heart drop.

Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis starred as the title characters in the 1980s Ghostbusters movies, which also featured Sigourney Weaver.

The upcoming Ghostbusters movie will be helmed by Juno director Jason Reitman, whose father Ivan Reitman directed the original two films. "Maybe I could have [used] different words but I'm allowed to have my feelings just like them". "I have so much respect for what Paul created with those brilliant actresses, and would love to see more stories from them".

So far, there have been no responses from either Reitman or anyone else involved with the new film, despite heavy backlash over the lack of gender inclusivity.

For that reason, it was unsurprising when, the other day, a new reboot of the series was announced, this one completely unrelated to Feig's 2016 film.
