Paul Feig’s rumored all-female Ghostbusters movie just became Twitter official. The Heat’s Katie Dippold will co-write the script, and Feig says it will star “hilarious women.” No word on who these will be just yet, but over the years a number of luminaries have come up with their own dream casts of women to call:

Mindy Kaling (way back in 2011!): Emily Blunt, Taraji P. Henson, Natalie Portman, and, of course, Kaling herself.

Bill Murray (in September): Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Linda Cardellini, and Emma Stone.

Jesse David Fox: Kristen Schaal, Regina Hall, Jenny Slate, and Lauren Lapkus. (With Zoe Kazan in the Rick Moranis role.)

Kyle Buchanan: Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Amy Poehler, and Maya Rudolph.

Lindsey Weber: Reese Witherspoon, Reese Witherspoon, Reese Witherspoon, and Reese Witherspoon.
