Along with the Ghostbusters themselves, Ray Parker Jr.'s classic Ghostbusters theme song is getting revamped for the new movie. Confirmed via Twitter, the band Fall Out Boy will be joined by Missy Elliott to do a new rendition of the popular song.

Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz tweeted:

Wentz's confirmation followed this teaser from the band's official Twitter:

While the full track listing hasn't been revealed yet, confirmed artists to be appearing on the soundtrack include Walk the Moon, Wolf Alice, 5 Seconds of Summer, Pentatonix, and G-Eazy ft. Jeremih.

Parker's original Ghostbusters theme was a huge hit for the artist in the mid-'80s, earning him an Academy Award nomination in 1985 and staying on top of the Billboard charts for three consecutive weeks, and has continued to be an essential piece of the Ghostbusters legacy.

The Ghostbusters soundtrack will be released by RCA alongside the movie on July 15.
