LENA DUNHAM TO PLAY SLIMER IN GHOSTBUSTERS REBOOT
HOLLYWOOD – Girls star Lena Dunham announced she is to be the new Slimer in the all female reboot of Ghostbusters.
Dunham spoke to the Studio Exec about what she has planned for the character.
Hey Lena, congrats on the gig. How do you re-invent such a classic character?
I hate to sound all ‘actory’ but for me it’s like that thing where actors say putting on the character’s shoes gets them in the zone…same thing, but shit loads of slime, I’m dripping right now.
Is it helping?
I think so, I’ve tried sneaking into friends houses in the middle of the night and, like, standing at the foot of their bed moaning, without the slime it would look like either a mental breakdown or a heavy come-on. And it’s just that kind of psycho sexual ambiguity that has really helped me tap into the core of the character.
Where are you getting the slime?
Jack Nicholson hooked me up initially, he’s the go to guy for a lot of viscous material at short notice. But you wear it long enough you start to produce your own unique bacteria culture and it forms independently. I’ll be producing my own slime entirely by the time shooting starts.
Ghostbusters 3 will be released some time in the next future.
