Not a bad set of wheels!
Ghostbusters director Paul Feig tweeted a photo of the newest version of the iconic Ecto-1 car Tuesday. The big unveiling came shortly after Andy García and Michael K. Williams officially joined the film's cast. "#whattheygonnadrive," Feig wrote.
The Ghostbusters are under new management, courtesy of newcomers Abby Bergman (Melissa McCarthy), Erin Gilbert (Kristen Wiig), Jillian Holtzmann (Kate McKinnon) and Patty Tolan (Leslie Jones). Chris Hemsworth, Pat Kiernan, Cecily Strong and Matt Walsh also have roles in Feig's upcoming movie.
Filming began in Boston on June 8. The film is scheduled for a July 22, 2016 release.
In March, Feig confessed to E! News that he's unsure what to do about the original film's theme song. "It's such an iconic thing that part of you goes, 'I don't want to change it,' but then another part of you wants to update it," the filmmaker, 52, explained. "It's one of the biggest questions we're faced with."
McCarthy, meanwhile, jokingly volunteered to cover the song for the soundtrack. "I'll get the old pipes warmed up," the 44-year-old Spy actress told E! News, adding, "I'm a horrible singer. I cannot sing. I'll do a Milli Vanilli."
In April, Feig told E! News he'd cast "the funniest group of ladies" ever. "There are so many funny women in this world that I'm dying to work with. It was really hard to pare it down to those four, but those four are also the funniest women on the planet, so it's a thrill. I just wish I could cast twenty funny women in it!"
Emma Stone was one of the actresses considered for a role. "The script was really funny. It just didn't feel like the right time for me. A franchise is a big commitment—it's a whole thing," she revealed in the July/August issue of WSJ. Magazine. "I think maybe I need a minute before I dive back into that water."
