New "Ghostbusters" film's all-female cast revealed

It looks like the new, all-female "Ghostbusters" reboot has decided who it's gonna call.

Melissa McCarthy has signed on for the Paul Feig-directed project, and negotiations are now in place for Kristin Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon to join her, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Discussions are still ongoing, THR notes, but Feig ("Bridesmaids") did tweet a photo of the four actresses on Tuesday:

McCarthy and Wiig both previously worked together with Feig on "Bridesmaids." McKinnon has been on "Saturday Night Live" since 2012 and earned an Emmy nomination for her work last year. Jones joined the cast of "SNL" this past fall.

Feig confirmed in October that he was making a new "Ghostbusters" and that it would star "hilarious women." The film is reportedly eyeing a summer shoot in New York City.
