Director Paul Feig provides the names of his Ghostbusters

In response to fans using behind-the-scenes pictures from the set of his GHOSTBUSTERS reboot to try to figure out the names of the new team of 'busters, director Paul Feig took to his Twitter account, which he has previously used to give us official looks at the Ghostbusters, the Ecto-1, the uniforms, and a proton pack, to reveal the names of the characters.

Straight from the man who created these characters with co-writer Kate Dippold, the new Ghostbusters lineup consists of: Kristen Wiig as Erin Gilbert, Melissa McCarthy as Abby Yates, Kate McKinnon as Jillian Holtzmann, and Leslie Jones as Patty Tolan.

That's information you don't really gain much from knowing at this point, but it is also information that has been withheld up until now, and this confirms that the characters were definitely not named in reference to the original Ghostbusters, who were Peter Venkman, Ray Stantz, Egon Spengler, and Winston Zeddmore.

GHOSTBUSTERS is currently filming in Boston, with the city standing in for New York. Co-starring with the ladies named above are Neil Casey, Chris Hemsworth, Andy Garcia, Michael K. Williams, Matt Walsh, Pat Kiernan, and Cecily Strong. The film is set for release on July 22, 2016.
