Paul Feig has finally unveiled the cast for his new Ghostbusters movie and it’s looking good.

As everyone reported and kind of assumed, Melissa McCarthy will star, alongside her brilliant Bridesmaids co-star Kristen Wiig.

They are joined by two current stars of Saturday Night Live: Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones. McKinnon has been with SNL since 2012, while Jones joined the cast last year. Both are hilarious, and we’re very excited to see what they bring.

It’s a very strong cast and it’s exciting to see that Feig has gone for comedians over stars; clearly McCarthy and Wiig are very big names but no one is doubting their comedic credibility.
