Melissa McCarthy has chosen a wig for Ghostbusters

Melissa McCarthy has chosen a wig for the 'Ghostbusters' reboot.

The 44-year-old actress was announced as a cast member for the all-female version of the movie back in January and revealed she has already picked out a hair-piece which she thinks suits the role and sent a photo of it to director Paul Feig because she is "wildly excited" about the film.

She said: "I'm wildly excited about it. I've already sent Paul a picture of my wig. I start everything with a wig."

The star - who has daughters Vivian, eight, and Georgette, five, with her husband, fellow actor and comedian Ben Falcone - also teased the "awesome" movie, set to be released in 2016, and gushed about her co-star Kristen Wiig, who she previously starred alongside in the hit comedy 'Bridesmaids'.

She told Stylist magazine: "It's just so awesome. I saw her recently and we were reading through the script. She's truly one of the funniest and nicest women I have ever met in my life."

And while Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones will also feature in the much-anticipated film, Paul recently revealed Melissa will play the "leader" in the sci-fi comedy film.

He said: "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."
