.Feig later told Entertainment Weekly that Murray’s lineup sounded like “an awesome cast,” but right now he’s having too much fun making his mind up.

“That’s part of the fun for me is figuring out what’s the best combo, what’s going to be relevant and fun,” the director said, “Bottom line I just want the best, funniest cast.”
