And it ain't because they couldn't afford her!

Back in late 2014, Jennifer Lawrence admitted to meeting with director Paul Feig to discuss the possibility of starring in the all female Ghostbusters reboot!

Obviously, the casting didn't work out — and Feig eventually tapped Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones to play the four leads in the film.

But at a recent press event for the upcoming comedy, the filmmaker admitted he was still "desperate to work with" J.Law — and revealed the real reason the actress didn't get the role was due to her busy filming schedule!

Explaining they originally met as a "general kind of meet and greet," the Spy director said he quickly realized Lawrence's shooting schedule for X-Men: Apocalypse wouldn't allow her to strap on her proton pack with the rest of the squad.

Last Thursday, Sony released the first trailer for Ghostbusters and the world was treated to an action-packed look at the new team starring Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon.

Though the trailer showed a lot of the ladies — including enough of Jones' character to spark some outrage — it didn't really give us much of Chris Hemsworth, the Ghostbusters' sexy receptionist.

OMG — poor John Goodman!

The legendary actor must not get starstruck much, considering how many films he's been in and how many amazing actors he's shared a screen with, but in Kristen Wiig's case, he is a HUGE fan!

The only problem is, after a bad encounter at a party, he may never speak to her again!!

Wait… what????

Goodman was on The Howard Stern Show when the host asked him about the actor's awkward encounter with the Bridesmaids actress, and the 13-time Saturday Night Live host didn't hold back about approaching her at a party once:

FYI: The World Is Ending This Weekend, According To Ghostbusters 2 — Watch!

For some people, being single on Valentine's Day might feel like the end of the world.

And according to Ghostbusters 2, the apocalypse might just actually happen this year!

The 1989 comedy sequel shows Dr. Peter Venkman (Bill Murray) interviewing psychic Elaine (Chloe Webb) for his show The World of the Psychic.

And the clairvoyant reveals that her "sources" predict the end of the world to be on February 14, 2016.

Photos: Movies That Have Their Own Holidays!

Venkman's response to this claim, in that classic Murray deadpan, is a simple:

"Valentine's Day. Bummer."

We really hope Elaine is mistaken. It would be a shame for the apocalypse to hit before we get to see Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy in Paul Feig's Ghostbusters remake!

Prepare yourself for the possible end of the world this weekend with a clip from the scene (below)!

Kristen Wiig has been out making the late night rounds recently promoting her new flick Zoolander 2.

Of course the comedienne HAD to stop by Jimmy Fallon's show, but interestingly enough she didn't show up as herself but rather Peyton Manning!

We don't exactly know why Wiig impersonated Manning, and it seems like a super odd choice seeing as how the Super Bowl winner was just on Fallon's show last night, but we love Kristen's awkwardness throughout the interview nonetheless!

Ch-ch-check out the Saturday Night Live alum's impersonation of the NFL star sporting both a jersey and a wig (below)!
