Ghostbusters Fancast

Transcribed from 2/3/16 episode of Screen Heroes: Episode 7 “Would You Watch It?”

Every once in a while, we recast, or fancast, films.  This time, we each chose to cast a Ghostbusters film we want to watch. We all take different approaches and three really fun movies emerge. Which one would you most like to see?
