It's mind boggling 5 ’80s comedies that should be remade with female leads By Gregory E. Miller January 28, 2015 | 3:52pm Modal Trigger Jennifer Lawrence (from left), Mindy Kaling and Aidy Bryant are among the stars we'd like to see remake '80s comedies.

On Tuesday, news broke that “Bridesmaids” director Paul Feig had found his cast for a women-led “Ghostbusters” reboot. Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig, who both worked with Feig on “Bridesmaids,” will take part, as well as current “Saturday Night Live” cast members Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon. We’ve still got a ways to go until the funny ladies light up the screen — the film hits theaters July 22, 2016 — so in the meantime, let’s brainstorm which other classic ’80s comedies we’d like to see revamped with a bit of girl power: ‘Twins’ Modal Trigger Rose Byrne (left) and Aidy BryantPhoto: Jeffery Duran/Splash News; Stephen Lovekin/Getty Images for Comedy Central Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito hilariously starred as an unlikely set of twins separated at birth in the 1988 laugher. For a revamp, why not posit Rose Byrne — who has held her own in movies like “Bridesmaids” and “Neighbors” — in the Schwarzenegger role, pairing her with the whip-smart “SNL” breakout Aidy Bryant in DeVito’s part. ‘Trading Places’ Modal Trigger Regina Hall (left) and Anna KendrickPhoto: Larry Busacca/Getty Images; Rachel Murray/Getty Images for NYLON Audiences and critics alike loved the 1983 comedy about a bet that intertwines a white-collar guy (Dan Aykroyd) and a street con man (Eddie Murphy). Regina Hall, who stole 2014’s “About Last Night” from Kevin Hart, would make a perfect modernized Murphy. As for Aykroyd’s part, let’s cast Anna Kendrick — who, with her self-proclaimed “bitchy resting face,” would take the snobbery level to new heights. ‘¡Three Amigos!’ Modal Trigger Lena Dunham (from left), Mindy Kaling and Aubrey PlazaPhoto: John Parra/Getty Images for Columbia; Scott Roth/Invision for Eddie Bauer/AP Images; Randy Holmes/ABC via Getty Images Steve Martin, Chevy Chase and Martin Short brought the laughs in this 1986 comedy as silent-film stars who are mistaken for real heroes. A modern reboot with funny ladies of the moment Mindy Kaling, Lena Dunham and Aubrey Plaza would kill. ‘Planes, Trains & Automobiles’ Modal Trigger Tina Fey (left) and Amy PoehlerPhoto: Steve Granitz/WireImage Steve Martin played the about-to-burst straight man to John Candy’s bizarro in 1987’s ultimate road-trip movie. Cast Tina Fey in Martin’s part and her buddy Amy Poehler as her loony counterpart, and you’ve got a blockbuster. ‘Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure’ Modal Trigger Emma Stone (left) and Jennifer LawrencePhoto: @Parisa/Splash News; Stefanie Keenan/WireImage In the 1989 sci-fi comedy, Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter starred as two doofus high schoolers who time-travel in a phone booth to learn some history. Real-life pals Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone could bring a fresh perspective to the stoner classic.
