If you're remaking beloved '80s flick Ghostbusters, who you gonna call? Why, the hottest female comedians around, of course!

Rumors about the all-female Ghostbusters have been swirling for ages, and now it looks like the film, which is to be directed by Paul Feig of Bridesmaid fame, has its cast in place: Paul just tweeted an image of Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, and Saturday Night Live favorites Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon.


According to The Hollywood Reporter only Melissa is officially signed onto the film right now, but the other three are in negotiations and expected to make a deal. Given that Paul sent out the tweet, we think it's safe to say everyone is onboard with this plan, even if some of the details are still in the works.

It's risky business to remake a movie as well-loved as Ghostbusters — the original supernatural romp and its sequel starred Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, and Rick Moranis and is still a must-watch for every kid — but we love the idea of making an all-female cast. It sets it apart from the original enough that we have faith the two generations will be able to live side-by-side.

Plus, with two comedy powerhouses like Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy starring and two awesome up-and-comers rounding out the team, this is going to be a must-see movie!
