Paul Feig Premieres New Photo of ‘Ghostbusters’ Ensemble

By July 10, 2015

Director Paul Feig has premiered a new photo of his Ghostbusters team, this time in full costume, with their equipment, and in front of the new vision of their immortal vehicle, the ECTO-1. See it below.

Premiering the image on Twitter, this new look at the cast gives us our most complete look at the aesthetic of the fully formed team, consisting of an all-female roster made up of some of the funniest women in film and television today. From left to right we see Leslie Jones (“Saturday Night Live,” National Security), Melissa McCarthy (The HeatBridesmaids), Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids, “Saturday Night Live”), and Kate McKinnon (“Saturday Night Live,” Ted 2) all decked out in full, different, yet familiar garb as the new team of Ghostbusters.

According to The Boston Herald, the basic plot outline reads,

Wiig and McCarthy play a pair of unheralded authors who write a book positing that ghosts are real. Flash forward a few years and Wiig lands a prestigious teaching position at Columbia U. (Like the original, the story takes place in New York City, even though it’s being shot in Boston.) Which is pretty sweet, until her book resurfaces and she is laughed out of academia. Wiig reunites with McCarthy and the other two proton pack-packing phantom wranglers, and she gets some sweet revenge when ghosts invade Manhattan and she and her team have to save the world.

While many fans feel that the film has a lot to prove to hold up to the high standards of the original, it’s always worth remembering that Feig’s record as a director for the past several years has been very positive, having directed hits like BridesmaidsThe Heat, and Spy. His storytelling credit also expands to being the creator of the awesome yet short-lived NBC drama series “Freaks and Geeks,” about two groups of high school friends growing up in 1980-81.

Still, full judgment will have to be reserved for July 22nd, 2016, when Ghostbusters hits theaters everywhere. For more on the film as it develops further, keep it locked on GeekNation.
