"Okay, here you go," Feig wrote. "Erin Gilbert, Jillian Holtzmann, Abby Yates and Patty Tolan. Now you know even more." Feig did not identify which actress would be playing each character, although Melissa McCarthy has been rumored to be playing Yates, judging by her nametag seen in an on-set photo.
