Production on the Ghostbusters reboot wrapped this past Saturday, and the film now enters what will likely be a lengthy post-productions stage.
Paul Feig’s reboot of the classic 1984 movie will part from the original two films by featuring a whole new team of Ghostbusters and will not be related to the original films. Making another departure will be the fact that the new team will feature an all-female cast that includes Kirsten Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Lesile Jones, and Kate McKinnon.
From ComingSoon.Net, new on-set photos highlighted the last day of filming, with the full Ghostbusters team in their civilian clothes. Some of the photos featured action shots of Kate McKinnon and Lesile Jones, but the majority of the photos include candid moments from the cast. Also on set was original Ghostbuster Ernie Hudson, who was confirmed to have a cameo in the film. He was seen primarily on set with Lesile Jones and Melissa McCarthy.
With the cameo from Hudson, the new movie now boasts cameos from all the living members of the original Ghostbusters team, including Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd. The film will also feature a cameo from Ghostbusters’ receptionist Janine Melnitz (Annie Potts). While the actors will not be reprising their characters from the original two films, director Paul Feig is still giving a nod to the original cast with these cameos.
Although no footage has been released, a great deal has already been said about the film — both from those excited to see what Feig and his great cast have in store, and those who feel differently. Now that production has finally ended, the likelihood that audiences will be able to catch a glimpse of what this reboot is going to look like increases dramatically.
So far, there has been little in terms of official marketing promotion either — not even a poster or teaser has made its way to the public. The majority of the promotional material has come from Paul Feig himself, either via Twitter or in the form of photos taken from the set. While there’s no reason to worry, because the reboot is full of talented and hilarious women, it’s about time eager audiences get to see what they’ve got.
Ghostbusters opens in U.S theaters on July 15, 2016.
