The iconic Ectomobile has seen better days in the latest images from Ghostbusters 2020
The notion of a legitimate sequel to the original Ghostbusters movies seemed to be a pipe dream following the abysmal Ghostbusters: Answer the Call reboot which offended more fans than it appeased, and yet out of nowhere Sony Pictures hit us with news of Ghostbusters III. Directed by Jason Reitman and produced by original Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II director Ivan Reitman, Ghostbusters 2020 has been confirmed as the continuation of the original timeline and WILL feature the original cast.
Understandably, fans of the original movies are beside themselves with excitement and are eager to learn everything they can about the sequel. Thankfully, we are in luck. Several new set pictures have leaked onto the internet providing a glimpse at the iconic “Ectomobile” Ecto-1 which has sadly seen better days. Another image reveals a call back to the infamous Stay Puft Marshmallow Man which almost destroyed New York during the finale of the original movie.
Sadly, original Ghostbusters alumni Sigourney Weaver, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson have yet to be seen on set but with Ecto-1 retrieved from the decrepit old barn as revealed in the teaser trailer surely, they can’t be far behind.
The new film will reportedly revolve around a family who moves back home to a small town. While there, they begin to learn more about who they are and the secrets of the town itself. The movie counts Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things), McKenna Grace (Captain Marvel), and Carrie Coon (Avengers: Infinity War) among its confirmed cast members.
The movie is currently shooting in Calgary, Alberta Canada and from these incredible images, Jason Reitman appears to be going all out to tap into the nostalgia factor.
Ghostbusters III is set to hit our screens on July 10th, 2020 release.
