Chris Hemsworth is joining the cast of Paul Feig‘s female-led “Ghostbusters” film, TheWrap has learned.
Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon star in the film based on the classic ’80s supernatural comedy.
The director first shared the news on his Twitter account, posting a picture of Hemsworth with the caption, “Our receptionist.” Hemsworth will be taking over the role played by Annie Potts in the original 1984 film, which featured Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and the late Harold Ramis as the Ghostbusters.
Kate Dippold and Feig co-wrote the screenplay for the reboot, and filming is expected to begin this year.
The new “Ghostbusters” will be released on July 22, 2016.

Chris Hemsworth is staying humble.
Even though the Thor actor has clearly reached A-list status, he recently went back to his not so glamorous roots on the Australia soap opera Home and Away, where he got his first big acting break. Chris’s returning role? “Guy eating a burger” at the diner where the soap’s characters are eating!
Chris gamely agreed to the role after coming back home to Australia and visiting his soap opera pals. The 31-year-old Avengers: Age of Ultron star played the character Kim Hyde from 2004 to 2007, the son of the principal of the soap’s Summer Bay High.
Last November, Chris proudly credited the show for helping to prepare him for Hollywood success.
“I thank my upbringing here in Australia and working on Home and Away and the people I met there and those lessons I learnt,” he told Australia’s Today show. “I really took all that work ethic and that experience over there [Hollywood] and I think that’s what pays off.”
