When asked what she thought of project, Gillian made a plea to the movie's director, Paul Feig.
She wrote: "OH MY GOD, I just looked it up online. Paul Feig, cast me now! Start a Twitter petition! I'm free!!!!! I'm free I'm free and I'm funny, goddamnit! (sic)"
Another Redditor then joked about creating a petition to help the 'X-Files' star, to which she replied: "MAKE IT HAPPEN!!"

Paul - who also directed 'Bridesmaids' - confirmed on Wednesday (08.10.14) that he would be directing the 'Ghostbusters' film with the help of 'The Heat' writer Katie Dippold.
At the time he tweeted: "It's official. I'm making a new Ghostbusters & writing it with @katiedippold & yes, it will star hilarious women. That's who I'm gonna call."
