Black Mirror‘s Sarah Abbott is reportedly in the running for the lead role of Jason Reitman’s Ghostbusters sequel.
It seems that things are full speed ahead for Jason Reitman’s upcoming Ghostbusters film, which will be set in the continuity of the original films. While some of the original crew but not all, is set to return, there’s a new player in town in the form of Black Mirror actress Sarah Abbott. Courtesy of Christopher Marc over at HN Entertainment, it’s being reported that actress Sarah Abbott, who you may have seen in programs like the aforementioned Black Mirror or The InBetween, is auditioning for the lead role in the Ghostbusters film. The story of the upcoming sequel has rumored to be focusing on a new, much younger set of heroes than what fans of the franchise have seen in the previous films.
Based on the audition tapes acquired by HN Entertainment, it appears that Sarah Abbott is vying for the awkward science-girl type who has trouble fitting in. More than that, she uses humor to help her socially awkward situations. Fans might notice that this character description is very Peter Parker-ish. In addition, DanielRPK recently chimed in and reported that Sarah Abbott will be playing the main character of this Ghostbusters film. Check out the report in the post below.
That character was at the top of the list on the breadown, meaning she's the main character of the film.

New ‘Godzilla: King Of The Monsters’ Posters Showcase Rodan, Mothra & Ghidorah
Earlier this week, Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures dropped the newest trailer for their highly-anticipated sequel, Godzilla: King of the Monsters. The new trailer showed off some more epic action following the beloved monster along with some incredible sequences involving Rodan, Mothra and Ghidorah.
Now, Legendary has shared three brand new posters for Rodan, Mothra and Ghidorah. Given that Godzilla will be battling with these monsters in the new film, it makes sense to see them receive their own poster that boasts their size and scale as they unleash their terror against humankind.
Given that Rodan, Mothra and Ghidorah all take flight unlike Godzilla, it is going to be stunning visual spectacle to see them take the skies and swoop down as they all battle to the bitter end for what looks to be one of the most-anticipated blockbusters of 2019.
You can check out the new posters of Rodan, Mohra and Ghidorah down below by clicking "Next".
What do you think of these new posters? Are you excited to see the King of the Monsters take the reins in this new sequel? Sound off in the comments below, and be sure to continue following Heroic Hollywood for all the latest news from the MonsterVerse.
Directed by Michael Dougherty, Godzilla: King of the Monsters stars Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga, Millie Bobby Brown, Bradley Whitford, Sally Hawkins, Charles Dance, Thomas Middleditch, O’Shea Jackson Jr., with Ken Watanabe and Ziyi Zhang.
Following the global success of “Godzilla” and “Kong: Skull Island” comes the next chapter in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ cinematic MonsterVerse, an epic action adventure that pits Godzilla against some of the most popular monsters in pop culture history. The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species—thought to be mere myths—rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters will be released in theaters on May 31, 2019.
