The all-new, all female “Ghostbusters” are close to assembling.

Melissa McCarthy is once again teaming up with “Bridesmaids” director Paul Feig for the reboot of the classic 80s sci-fi comedy franchise, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Kristen Wiig, who also starred in “Bridesmaids,” and a “Saturday Night Live” players Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon are in negotiations to round out the four leads, the website reported. Feig tweeted a picture of the four actresses Tuesday, but didn’t give an explanation.

The movie is set to film in New York, where the previous two movies shot, in the summer. It’s unknown if the three surviving “Ghostbusters” actors, Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray and Ernie Hudson, will appear in the reboot.
