‘Ghostbusters” Ecto-1 Featurette Spotlights the Classic Vehicle’s Upgrades

“What would we be really bummed if we didn’t see?” director Paul Feig asks at the start of a behind-the-scenes video focused on the iconic car driven by his all-new “Ghostbusters” squad. “There’s a lot of things – proton packs and ghost traps and slime – but the main, number-one thing we said was the Ecto-1.”

The video briefly describes the car’s history, informing that it’s actually a hearse, on loan from the uncle of Ghostbuster recruit Patty, played by current SNL cast member Leslie Jones.

Feig also reminds audiences that the original Ecto-1 driven by the first crew in 1984 was a converted ambulance.

“You cannot do Ghostbusters without the Ecto-1,” he explains.

The original film, starring Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, and Sigourney Weaver and directed by Harold Ramis became an instant classic, spawning a sequel, an animated series, and a number of comic book runs.

Directed by Feig from a script he wrote with Katie Dippold, “Ghostbusters” stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones and Chris Hemsworth. The film arrives in U.S. theaters on July 15.
