Cameras have been rolling in Boston for the past few weeks on Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot, which will introduce a new quartet of do-gooders played by Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon, and thanks to local publications as well as Feig himself, we’ve been seeing all kinds of exciting teases drop over Twitter.
The latest image reveals to make the rounds online include a shot of McCarthy in her jumpsuit outfit, complete with some killer frames, as well as our first look at the vehicle to be driven by the titular Ghostbusters.

On both counts, Feig and company are hewing closely to the original, capturing the same crumpled, baggy look for the outfits and a similarly cobbled-together look for the Ghostbusters’ car (check out a side-by-side comparison to the original film’s sweet ride above).
The images don’t reveal any key plot points from the movie, but other recent news about the reboot fills in some blanks. Chris Hemsworth will be playing the Ghostbusters’ hunky secretary, Neil Casey is taking on the lead villainous role, and Michael K. Williams, Andy Garcia and Matt Walsh are all playing supporting characters.
The Boston Herald recently reported the following about the plot:
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. 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.
