First Look: Paul Feig's Vintage Ecto-1 from the New 'Ghostbusters'
What are they gonna drive? A truck? A car? Nah, the Ecto-1 of course! Director Paul Feig has revealed the first two photos of the
brand new vintage Ecto-1 from new Ghostbusters movie in the works. The original Ecto-1 was a 1959 Cadillac professional chassis, this seems to be a slightly newer model, but not by much. This certainly looks like the kind of hunk of junk Melissa McCarthy's character has had in her garage since she was a kid, and they've requisitioned it to 'bust some ghosts. Feig also posted a shot of the backside of the car, which shows the classic Ecto-1 license plate clearly. I like the look of this. At least it wasn't modernized.
Here's the first two photos of the new Ecto-1 from Paul Feig's Ghostbusters - filming is underway now.
For those concerned about the look, don't worry too much, they're actually listening to the fans' feedback:
Not blocking or deleting. I hear you all and appreciate all your input, good or bad. Thanks. https://t.co/pxZsWGeNyL
