The all-female cast of the “Ghostbusters” reboot has reportedly been chosen. The Paul Feig reboot has been buzzed about for months and now The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Melissa McCarthy has officially signed on for a lead role. (She was reportedly in negotiations earlier this month.) But that’s not all: According to THR, Kristen Wiig and “SNL” stars Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon are now in negotiations for their parts. The film is scheduled to start shooting this summer. Representatives for the actresses did not return HuffPost Entertainment’s immediate request for comment.

The all-female cast of the “Ghostbusters” reboot has reportedly been chosen.

Representatives for the actresses did not return HuffPost Entertainment’s immediate request for comment. Feig, however, tweeted the following photo just before the THR story posted:

Feig, whose credits include “Bridesmaids” and “The Heat,” confirmed that he would take on the new “Ghostbusters” film for Sony back in October. (He and “The Heat” writer Katie Dippold are working on the screenplay.) In an interview with EW.com, Feig explained his direction for the movie: “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.”

While the rest of the cast has not been revealed, HitFix reporter Drew McWeeny speculated that original “Ghostbusters” star Bill Murray could join the film as one of the villains, a “professional supernatural debunker.” Murray famously balked at doing a third “Ghostbusters” film for years, back when original director Ivan Reitman had previously been attached. When “Ghostbusters” star Harold Ramis died last year, however, Reitman bowed out from directing duties.
