Who you gonna call? Let’s find out.
So after months of speculations, the Ghostbusters
all-female cast was cryptically revealed by director Paul Feig.
Without further a-ghoul (heh heh), the cast is revealed.

Feig, who also directed Bridesmaids
has, in a move that surprises no one, cast funny ladies Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy as two of the resident Ghostbusters, with Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones from Saturday Night Live
rounding out the phantom-fighting cast.
I can feel my sides sore from laughter already.
While it hasn't been totally confirmed, Feig's tweet seems to be a solid indicator and all we have to do is wait for them to sign on the dotted lined before the deal is sealed and we have our Ghostbusting Quartet.
The Hollywood Reporter
has announced that the film is due to start filming in New York this summer. Even Hollywood legend—and original cast member—Bill Murray has given the film and cast his seal of approval.
In fact, the project has been ongoing, and this is the first attempt at a reboot that seems to have gained legs rather than stay on the ghostly realm of unmade movies.
Paul Feig is no stranger to funny, having directed the aforementioned Bridesmaids
, upcoming movie Spy
starring Melissa McCarthy and Jason Statha, and several episodes of the phenomenal Arrested Development.
All in all, we think the Ghostbusters are in good hands.
So Popwrappers, what are your thoughts on the casting news
