Paul Feig - the director of the female-led 'Ghostbusters' movie - has revealed the new names of the characters in the sci-fi comedy.

Paul Feig has revealed the names of the new characters in the female-led 'Ghostbusters'. The 52-year-old director, who directed the 2011 hit Bridesmaids, has introduced the all-new 'Ghostbusters' via Twitter as Erin Gilbert, Jillian Holtzmann, Abby Yates and Patty Tolan.

And while Paul Feig, who has been releasing little teasers of the movie over the last few weeks, declined the chance to specify which actress will play which character, it's already known that Kate McKinnonin has been cast in the role of Jillian Holtzmann.

In April, meanwhile, Paul revealed Melissa McCarthy will be the "leader" of the new 'Ghostbusters' movie.

The director of the much-discussed sci-fi comedy said the 44-year-old actress will head the all-female team, which will also include Kristen Wiig and Leslie Jones.

He said: "It's an ensemble, but at the same time you need the one person that brings you into the group who is Wiig's character.

"Melissa is sort of the leader of the group, but everybody will be equal. I just love a deep bench like this. Every one of those women is strong and so funny. The hardest thing is going to be ... keeping all of their stuff in the movie."

The new Ghostbusters is set for July 22 2016 release date. The plot is still completely unknown.
