On this frigid, city-wide snow day, we present yet another reason to look forward to summer: The all-female Ghostbusters movie has officially been cast, according to the Hollywood Reporter, and you will be very pleased with the decisions. Ladies and gentlemen, your new Ghostbusters: Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones.
What's more, the Paul Feig-directed film (he's the dude behind Bridesmaids) will likely film in NYC this summer, so there's a chance that when you're strolling from one air-conditioned locale to another, you could stumble upon the poltergeist-whooping girl gang of your dreams.
