Director Paul Feig has announced that they have finished filming of “Ghostbusters 3.”

Feig took to Twitter to inform that the production on “Ghostbusters” reboot has wrapped up -- the shooting of which began in June. He shared a photo on his Twitter feed along with the text message, “It's a wrap on Ghostbusters!!!” The photo features three Ghostbusters-themed Funko figures.

The director also confirmed in another post that Ernie Hudson, who played Winston Zeddemore in the original “Ghostbuster” film, was on the set on the last day of filming. Hudson has reportedly been roped in for a cameo appearance in the film's reboot.

“Thanks to the great @Ernie_Hudson for joining us on our last day of production. He is a class act and an incredibly talented and funny man,” Feig tweeted.

It was earlier reported that Bill Murray, one of the original cast members of “Ghostbuster,” has signed on to make an appearance in the film along with Annie Potts and Dan Aykroyd.

Meanwhile, Feig’s new “Ghostbuster” features an all-women lead stars. The cast include Kristen Wiig (“Bridesmaids”), Kate McKinnon (“Balls Out”), Melissa McCarthy (“Spy”) and Leslie Jones (“Top Five”).

In October last year, Feig confirmed that he’s on board to direct and co-write the project starring “hilarious women.” The director told Entertainment Weekly (EW) that his vision for “Ghostbuster” reboot connects with his passion to work with funny women. Feig added that the reboot will be “funnier,” “scarier” and “more real” than the original film.

“We have a very rough, rough outline that we’re working with, but definitely know the basic story, know what we want the basic characters to do, know what we want the world to do and what the rules of our world are…” Feig said to EW. “I think it’s a really strong origin story that feels real -- as real as a ghost story is. It’s going to be really fun and real. We’ll make it scary and funny.”

“Ghostbusters” is set to release on July 22, 2016.
