Behold your new all-female Ghostbusters.

Director Paul Feig tweeted the following image confirming that Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones are the new Ghostbusters.

Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy have worked with Feig before in Bridesmaids;  McKinnon and Jones are known for Saturday Night Live.

The third Ghostbusters movie will be a reboot; however, Feig hasn't ruled out using the original cast members in new roles.

Details released as a result of the Sony hack revealed Ryan Gosling is eyed for a role, and that the all-female Ghostbusters form as a result of a villain capable of rising an army of the dead in NYC. Other leaked e-mails revealed a possible spinoff starring Chris Pratt and Channing Tatum.

Feig also previously responded to the "haters" by telling them Ghostbusters 3 won't ruin their childhoods.

Update: Paul Feig also tweeted the new Ghostbusters will have a July 22, 2016 release, with Sony releasing the following image:
