(NEWSER) – If there's something strange in your neighborhood, the new Ghostbusters you're going to call will be women, and reboot director Paul Feig has now chosen his cast. He tweeted last night that the four main characters will Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones.
Feig, who says the movie will be filmed this summer for a July 22, 2016, release date, directed McCarthy and Wiig in Bridesmaids. McKinnon and Jones are current Saturday Night Live cast members (and Wiig got her start there), as were original Ghostbusters Dan Aykroyd and Bill Murray, the Guardian notes.
