It's a big day in Hollywood! The cast of the new Ghostbusters reboot featuring a female cast has reportedly been confirmed. According to Entertainment Weekly, Melissa McCarthy, Kristin Wiig will be joined by SNL regulars Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones for the Paul Feig (of Bridesmaids) directed film. Feig tweeted a picture of the four women with no caption earlier today, fueling the rumors that were already swirling around.
Wiig and McCarthy both worked together with Feig when he directed Bridesmaids. McKinnon was nominated for an Emmy for her work on Saturday Night Live and is perhaps best known for her spot-on impression of Ellen DeGeneres. Jones co-starred in Top Five this winter with Chris Rock and was recently promoted to a regular cast member on SNL.
This reboot is going to be amazing!
