‘Ghostbusters’ official cast photo shows Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon have team spirit.

The set of Paul Feig’s upcoming “Ghostbusters” movie was full of so many paparazzi and picture-takers hoping to get a glimpse of the brand new all-female spook-huntin’ professionals that the director famously took to Twitter to complain about ruining the surprise — and to offer his own pics as a way of getting ahead of the hype. Sony unveiled the first official image of the cast in the all-female “Ghostbusters” reboot Wednesday — with Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon looking the part in a 2016 update to the franchise’s iconic uniforms and proton packs.The fan site Planet Ghostbusters shared a new official photo from the upcoming reboot, showing the four new team members bathed in green light and looking like they, well, ain’t afraid of no ghosts. (Director Paul Feig also retweeted the photo.) Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Kristen Wiig, and Leslie Jones make up the phantom-fighting foursome, with Chris Hemsworth also starring.In a change for the local lad made good in Hollywood, when you make that emergency call to Ghostbusters HQ, you’ll hear his Aussie accent at the end of the line.

Many of the original cast members are set to return in unspecified cameo roles, including Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson, Dan Aykroyd, Annie Potts, and Sigourney Weaver. Writer-director Paul Feig has revealed to News Corp Australia that Hemsworth will be speaking his native tongue as the new generation Ghostbustersreceptionist in next year’s blockbuster movie reboot.

Director Paul Feig had previously tweeted out several photos during filming to combat an infestation of paparazzi buzzing around the film’s Boston set. It might not be the very first picture of Yates (Melissa McCarthy), Gilbert (Kristen Wiig), Holtzmann (Kate McKinnon) and Tolan (Leslie Jones) in costume that we’ve seen before, but it’s definitely the most “Ghostbuster”-est image of them we’ve seen. Asked what they were planning to order their secretary to do on his first day of work, McKinnon replied: “Just stand there and not speak and just let us keep looking and looking until we’ve had our fill.” “We’ve just had so much fun figuring out his character and he’s a really funny man.

They have big boots to fill: the first two “Ghostbusters,” with Murray, Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and the late Harold Ramis, under all that ectoplasmic slime, are considered ‘80s comedy classics. Sony had high hopes for a third installment of the supernatural comedy franchise, but original director Ivan Reitman dropped out in the wake of his friend Ramis’ death last year. I love Kate McKinnon and her lacksidasical stance, like the science teacher who uses the container of sulfuric acid as a door stop because he knows his s— so well it just makes sense to him.” Although the name and plot of the film, which is directed by Bridesmaids’ Paul Feig, haven’t been announced, the four main actresses have been making appearances in their costumes at children’s hospitals. The shot recalls the first capture of a ghost by original Ghostbusters Peter Venkman, Raymond Stantz and Egon Spendler (played by Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis) in a posh hotel in the original 1984 film. Though all the Ghostbusters (including Ernie Hudson) in that film were men, McCarthy said that never stopped her younger self from thinking she could ’Bust too. “I wanted to be a Ghostbuster when I was a kid.

I guess the child version of me was right.” Feig, director of Bridesmaids and this year’s hit action-comedy Spy, confirmed that his Ghostbusters would be an origins story set in “a world that has not seen ghosts yet” and would have a similar PG tone to the original. “I want to create a hilarious spectacle that has a lot of things that you’re not going to expect out of A) a Ghostbusters movie and B) I hate to say it, a movie with four actresses in it. We’re just trying to tear that wall down.” The director added he hopes everyone “of all ages, of all races, from one to 100, is like, ‘Oh, my God, I didn’t expect that’.
