Her story may have been short lived on Stranger Things, but Shannon Purser is moving onto better things in her acting career!

The breakout teen — who made her acting debut playing fan favorite Barb on Netflix's Summer hit — has landed a new movie role after a recent trip to Los Angeles!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 19-year-old traveled to El Lay for a week to meet with top casting directors from ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, and Sony — and is already finding herself knee-deep in so many roles that they almost bring #JusticeForBarb.

Finally, some quality roles for women in film!

Ellen DeGeneres is totally embracing the slew of female reboots that are quickly taking over Hollywood, so it's no surprise she wanted to produce one of her own.

They weren't afraid of no sequels… until now!

When Ghostbusters hit theaters last month, executives at Sony were confident that a sequel to Paul Feig's all-female reboot would be inevitable.

But since the film was met with a lukewarm box office performance and just fair-to-middling reviews, the studio has kept quiet on if it was still launching a live-action Ghostbusters universe as planned.

Melissa McCarthy may have successfully led the Ghostbusters reboot, but she won't be starring in a Star Wars spinoff anytime soon!

The comedienne was one of several A-list stars who auditioned to play young Han Solo in the upcoming Star Wars prequel — and let's just say we're now very glad the role went to Alden Ehrenreich!

In a hilarious sketch on Saturday's special San Diego Comic-Con episode of Conan, a handful of celebs tried out their best impressions of the beloved character.

All donning Han's iconic vest, Bill Hader proved he was much better at playing Jabba the Hut, 50 Cent was a little too intimidating with Han's glock, and Adam Sandler did his best adult baby babbling a la Billy Madison.

Ch-ch-check out the skit (below) to see Will Arnett, Jeff Goldblum, and even Jodie Foster auditioning for young Han!

We definitely know who we're gonna call now!

5 Seconds of Summer just dropped the hair-raising music video for their new song Girls Talk Boys — and we can't get enough!

Since the funky track is coming off the Ghostbusters soundtrack, it's no surprise that the boys strapped on their jumpsuits and proton packs for one ghastly video!

Though unlike the high-budget reboot starring Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy, 5SOS's ghost-hunting footage is pretty amateur — but that doesn't mean we wouldn't give the Aussie rock band a call to bust some ghosts.

Actually, these boys clearly don't know what they're doing, so we'll stick to the professionals in the film instead.

Ch-ch-check out the funny video for Girls Talk Boys (below) and catch Ghostbusters in theaters now!
