Ghostbusters 2020 has now officially begun production, and director Jason Reitman is already sharing photographs from the set. The newest picture published by the director shows a car that Ghostbusters fans will recognize as Ecto-1.
"You guys ready to get rolling?" Reitman asked fans on his Instagram when posting a closeup of the front part of the car. Ecto-1 was the Ghostbusters' faithful vehicle, but in the new image the old Cadillac seems to be rusting and neglected.
Ghostbusters 2020 will be a direct a sequel of the original Ghostbusters movies directed by Ivan Reitman, Jason's father. This means a lot of classic elements from the original series, like Ecto-1, will appear. The combination car was originally found and repaired by Dr. Ray Stantz in the first movie and was used to transport the Ghostbusters and their equipment around New York.
Ghostbusters 2020 is directed by Jason Reitman (Up in the Air), who also co-wrote the film with Gil Kenan (Monster House). The film stars Finn Wolfhard, Carrie Coon, Paul Rudd and Mckenna Grace. The involvement of the original Ghostbusters main cast has not been confirmed. The film is scheduled for release on July 20, 2020.
