Paul Feig, director of the upcoming female version of "Ghostbusters," announced Wednesday on Twitter that Chris Hemsworth has joined the cast. Feig posted a picture of Hemsworth captioned "Our receptionist. #whoyougonnacall." Hemsworth will take on the role played by Annie Potts in the 1984 original.

Sony Pictures reportedly reworked the script and juiced up the receptionist role for the 31-year-old star, who is known for his roles in "Thor" and "Snow White and the Huntsman."
