E! News recently reported a surprise visit to the Floating Hospital at Tufts Medical Center in Boston while on location for the next Ghostbusters film. It seems the newest team of Ghostbusters, consisting of Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Melissa McCarthy and Leslie Jones, made a stop to check in with many of the hospital’s patients in full costume. The actresses all stayed in character while talking and visiting with families and patients. They even went so far as to “check for ghosts” and make sure each room didn’t have any lingering souls to worry about. The visit was prompted by patients creating posters saying “who ya gonna call?” which were then placed on their hospital windows.
The VP of Public Affairs and Communication for the hospital, Brooke Hynes, explained what a treat it was and how wonderful the women were. She said, “They were so kind to all the kids and their parents. They took their time in each room visiting children as young as a few months to teens. We cannot thank them enough for their happiness and excitement they created.”
The remake of the 1984 classic will be released in theaters on July 22, 2016.
