This morning’s WTF news – LA casting call for GB body-doubles?

This popped up on Imgur/Reddit today, a screengrab for a casting call in LA for photo-doubles of each of the four Ghostbusters. The listing is for an un-named re-release (though as it specifically asked for people who look like the four actors like they did in Ghostbusters, it not hard to sort out what movie they mean.) But body-doubles why? A new movie needs name actors, not cattle-call actors. Body-doubles are a specific function – they have to look like someone. The only thing I can think of is re-shoots for that 3D refurbishment of the first Ghostbusters we haven’t heard about in awhile. My money is on this for the time being. For the curious, I did find the listing on the casting website.

What do you think? Any guesses?
