Story by Jack Foley

THE first official image has been released of Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot.

The film reunites Bridesmaids leading ladies Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy along with Saturday Night Live comediennes Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon as the all-female Ghostbusters team.

It also features Thor star Chrs Hemsworth as the receptionist, a role made memorable by Annie Potts in the original.

It has also been confirmed that Bill Murray will be making a cameo in the new movie – although it has not yet been revealed in what capacity.

The new Ghostbusters is scheduled to hit cinemas on July 22, 2016.

Feig has previously directed McCarthy and Wiig together in hit comedy Bridesmaids. He also re-teamed with McCarthy on buddy cop comedy The Heat and this summer’s box office hit Spy, which debuted at the top of the UK and US box office.
