The cast of the upcoming reboot of Ghostbusters made a special visit to a children’s hospital in Boston over the weekend!
According to E! News, kid patients at the Floating Hospital at Tufts Medical Center in Boston were surprised by the cast, who came strolling in with their costumes, matching backpacks, and ghost traps!
The cast including Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones entered hospital rooms to talk with patients and their families. There were even bed checks and mock scans to make sure no ghosts were creeping around!
“They were a true delight to have,” said Brooke Hynes, VP of Public Affairs and Communications for Tufts Medical Center, on Saturday. “They were so kind to all the kids and their parents.” She added, “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.”
Currently filming in Boston, the cast was compelled to visit after some of the kids at Floating Hospital put a sign in the windows that spelled out “Who ya gonna call?” The sign definitely got their attention!
The reboot, directed by Paul Feig, continues to shoot in Boston, and will be released on July 22, 2016.
What a wonderful and cool surprise!
