Introducing The All-Female Ghostbusters Cast

Movie dreams are made of this.

Let us introduce you to the all-new, all-female Ghostbusters cast.

Paul Feig, director of the Ghostbusters re-make, confirmed the line-up on Twitter. The all-female cast is made up of Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon.

The Bridesmaids director, explained his decision to pick the female-only lead cast, telling Entertainment Weekly: ‘I love the first one so much I don’t want to do anything to ruin the memory of that. So it just felt like, let’s just restart it because then we can have new dynamics. I want the technology to be even cooler. I want it to be really scary, and I want it to happen in our world today.’

Here at Marie Claire, we are very excited about the female-heavy cast and it seems we’re not the only ones. Giving it his seal approval, star of the original 1984 Ghostbusters, Bill Murray, said: ‘It sounds great to me. I would watch it.’

But, if you’re not quite sure who all the Ghostbusters ladies are, here’s a little guide:
