Who Should Play the Female Ghostbusters?

When Dan Aykroyd last opened his big mouth on the subject of his planned upcoming Ghostbusters sequel, he hinted at a PG-rated kids' adventure that would put PKE meters in the hands of small children ("They'll be lots of cadets, boys and girls," he said), seemingly dashing all hopes of a gritty, Batman Begins–style reboot. Now he backpedals a bit, telling the L.A. Times the movie will most likely feature a "five-member 'new generation' team with several female members" — and, thankfully, they'll be adults. But who should play them? Aykroyd does some fantasy casting, dangling nerd-bait like Eliza Dushku and Alyssa Milano, both of whom would make fine Ghostbusters, no doubt. But they'll likely face heavy competition once the screenplay goes out to the agencies. Which actress would you like to see in a proton pack? Kate Winslet? Marion Cotillard? Let us know in the comments.
