Initially, when director Paul Feig announced that he was to direct an all-female led reboot of Ghostbusters, many fans assumed a modern, gender swapped retelling of the original movie with female biased comedy and overt faux-feminism throughout. While the gender-swapping of key roles is already a given, as is likely the comedy and feminism of the script, it seems that in terms of the technology of the movie, we are just getting a rethink of the original concepts, instead of modern or futuristic technology. This was hinted at with the recent news showing the new costumes and proton packs, and has been further elaborated on with tweets from Feig showing a more detailed look at the movies proton pack and a new tweet showing us the new Ecto-1...

The Ecto-1 in the original movie was a Miller Meteor Ambulance, whereas the new Ecto-1 above is 1984 Cadillac Fleetwood Hearse. The use of all-too-similar props for the new movie has given rise to a new wave of criticism against director Paul Feig, with many fans calling the new movie a needless gender swapped remake of the 1984 classic.

With filming currently underway in Boston, new cast mebers are periodically coming to light - Oceans Eleven star Andy Garcia will play the Mayor of New York City, Michael K. Williams (2014's RoboCop) will play a character called Hawkins, with Matt Walsh playing a character called Rourke, and News Anchorman Pat Keirnan will play themself in the movie.
