The upcoming Ghostbusters reboot is gathering momentum, and it looks like the lead gals have been cast.
Melissa McCarthy, who we reported was circling a lead role a few weeks ago, is to star alongside Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon. Yep, apart from McCarthy, it’s a Saturday Night Live affair.

Director Paul Feig, who directed McCarthy and Wiig in Bridesmaids, took to Twitter with this confirmation:
