More and more information continues to slip out about the upcoming reboot of Ghostbusters and now we know who we're going to call with the names of our newest Ghostbusters released by Paul Feig.

Paul Feig took to Twitter, revealing the character names for the team:

Set to star Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Melissa McCarthy and Leslie Jones, the four female Ghostbusters will take on the names Erin Gilbert (Wiig), Jillian Holtzmann (McKinnon), Abby Yates (McCarthy) and Patty Tolan (Jones).

The release came after the NYC Ghostbusters fandom begged Paul Feig to tell them the names.

The film is also set feature Andy Garcia as the Mayor of New York City, Michael K. Williams as a character named “Hawkins,” Matt Walsh as a character named “Rourke,” Chris Hemsworth as the Ghostbusters’ secretary and Neil Casey as the film’s villain. New York City’s NY1 news anchor Pat Kiernan is also set to appear as news anchor in the film.

Directed by Feig from a script he co-wrote with Katie Dippold, Ghostbusters is currently filming in New York City with plans for additional photography in Boston. The film is targeting a July 22, 2016 release.
