new Ghostbusters character names

Director Paul Feig has been revealing quite a bit from his forthcoming Ghostbusters reboot that’s currently shooting in New York City. We’ve already seen the new proton packs (with added specs to help cosplayers), the new Ecto-1, and a shot of Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones all suited up and ready to bust ghosts.

But we still didn’t know what characters the ladies were playing. That changed yesterday when Feig replied to a request to reveal the character names on Twitter from a Ghostsbusters fan and charity organization. Find out the new Ghostbusters character names after the jump! Read More »

In fact, Dan Aykroyd has just announced that he was on the set of Ghostbusters today shooting a scene with Kristen Wiig. And there are even details as to what kind of character he’s playing in the movie. Find out more about the Dan Aykroyd Ghostbusters cameo after the jump! Read More »

The entire SlashFilm crew is all over San Diego for the rest of the week, and if you’ve been paying attention to the front page, then you already know that we’re covering Comic-Con like crazy.

Ghostbusters reboot proton pack

Last week director Paul Feig revealed images of the new gear that Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones would be wearing in the reboot of Ghostbusters. We got a glimpse of the new jumpsuits and also the proton packs they’ll be wearing, though we haven’t seen the stars suited up just yet.

But Ghostbusters fans are eager to get suited up in the new gear on their own as they’ve been asking Feig on Twitter to get a better look at the proton packs, so they can build their own. And Feig is a pretty nice guy, so he provided some new images with some helpful specs about the size of the neutrino wand and the pack itself.  See the Ghostbusters reboot proton pack images below!
