New Ghostbusters team have their names revealed

July 19th, 2015 by Marc Comments


So, just while you’re thinking that nothing can ever replace Venkman, Stantz, Spengler and Zeddemore, Paul Feig has shared the names of the new Ghostbusters team.

Taking to Twitter after being asked to share the team’s names, Feig wrote:  “Okay, here you go, Erin Gilbert, Jillian Holtzmann, Abby Yates and Patty Tolan. Now you know even more.”

So, now, who can put the name to the actress?

Near as we can figure it: 

Kristen Wiig is Erin Gilbert

Melissa McCarthy is Abby Yates

Kate McKinnon is Jillian Holtzmann

and  Leslie Jones is Patty Tolan

Are we right? Let us know what you think… will these names ever be as iconic as the ’84 ones?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
