'Ghostbusters' Female Remake Gets Its Cast

Who you gonna call?

This time, instead of the all-male "Ghostbusters" quartet of the '80s, we can now call on Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones for the female-centric version of the iconic film.

Director Paul Feig of "Bridesmaids" fame will direct, so it's no surprise that Wiig and McCarthy, who starred in the 2011 film, are on board. Feig made it official this afternoon by tweeting out photos of the four women.

While negotiations are still ongoing, according to The Hollywood Reporter, "the quartet are expected to sign on as the specter-seeking, poltergeist-punishing and phantom-phollowing foursome in the reboot."

Notably, McKinnon, Jones star on "Saturday Night Live," where Wiig is an alum and McCarthy was a popular host.

Now, we're just wondering if the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man will reappear — perhaps this time with a wife ... or a daughter?
