Ghostbusters continues production in New York City
Following all of the official images from director Paul Feig from the set of Ghostbusters, Feig has debuted one more image of all the previously-teased elements combined together for the cast fully dressed and with the new Ecto-1. Check it out below!
Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones will play the four main ‘busters in the film with Chris Hemsworth also starring as their trusty secretary. The film is also set feature Andy Garcia as the Mayor of New York City, Michael K. Williams as a character named “Hawkins,” Matt Walsh as a character named “Rourke” and Neil Casey as the film’s villain. New York City’s NY1 news anchor Pat Kiernan is also set to appear as news anchor in the film.
“I’m having a lot of fun playing with genres,” Feig told ComingSoon.net of the new film earlier this year, “…I love the original film, but I also just love the idea of busting ghosts and kind of paranormal warriors. I thought, ‘You know, if I could do this with the funny women I know and kind of just do a new origin story…’ I’m more interested in what would happen today. You know, you see things on TV about ghosts, but none of it’s real. What if, suddenly, something started happening? What happens when that just begins to happen to people? Also, how do they develop their technology? It’s not as fun if they’re just handed their proton packs. It’s why it’s not as fun to do a sequel. The fun is getting there.”
Directed by Paul Feig from a script he co-wrote with Katie Dippold, Ghostbusters is currently filming in New York City with plans for additional photography in Boston. The film is targeting a July 22, 2016 release.
