The cast of the upcoming Ghostbusters remake delighted the patients at a Boston hospital on Saturday (1st August) when they visited in full costume. The stars of director Paul Feig’s all female remake of the 1980s classic – Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones - chatted and posed for photographs with the patients.

Shooting for the upcoming film is underway in Boston but the cast took some time out of their busy schedule to pop in to Tufts Medical Center. They were reportedly filming outside the hospital when a group of patients in the children’s ward placed cards, spelling out ‘Who Ya Gonna Call?’, by the windows. How could the Ghostbusters refuse?

Photographs from their visit were shared by the hospital on Facebook. One particularly lovely one shows the four women posing with a male patient and two visitors. They also lent out their props, including some of their ghostbusting gadgets, to the patients and their visitors for the pictures.

According to reports in E!, some of the patients were even treated to a performance with the four actresses running mock ghostbusting checks, including sweeping under beds with their ghost detecting equipment. 

A representative from the hospital thanked the cast for making their visit, describing them as a “delight”. 

"They were a true delight to have today," the representative told E!. "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."
