‘Ghostbusters’ Director Paul Feig Reveals First Look at New Ecto-1
Between set photos, casting announcements and Paul Feig’s tweets, Ghostbusters fans have had plenty of sneak peeks to keep us occupied until next summer. First we got a look at the new costumes, then Feig gave us a look at the new proton pack (followed by a more detailed photo to explain the pack’s functions), and now the director has revealed our first look at the new Ghostbusters car.
Feig posted the first photo of the Ecto-1 on his Twitter account with the hashtag #whattheygonnadrive, in keeping with his hashtag riffs on the classic Ghostbusters theme song:
You can compare the new Ecto-1 to the classic above — the earlier model was a made-over Cadillac with the Ghostbusters logo and various lights and bells and whistles on top. The only major difference between the old model and Feig’s version is that the base for the new one appears to be a hearse. Pretty clever for a group of women who bust dead spirits, eh?
Ghostbusters stars Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones in the main roles, with Chris Hemsworth co-starring as their receptionist. Just yesterday, Michael K. Williams, Matt Walsh, Cecily Strong and Andy Garcia joined the cast, and today brought the announcement that Neil Casey will play the film’s villain.
Ghostbusters hits theaters on July 22, 2016.
