(Even her most high-profile roles, like Ghostbusters, have been ensemble pieces.) That’s about to change, though, with Deadline reporting that Jones will be the star of the first movie coming out of a new deal between Universal Pictures and SNL mastermind Lorne Michaels, who’s apparently getting back into the movie-making game.
